Dennis Rodman- Bad As I wanna Be

Title: Bad As I Wanna Be


Author: Dennis Rodman with Tim Keown


# of pages: 258


Setting: The book takes place in Dallas, Texas where Dennis


Rodman lived while he was a kid, Detroit, Michigan where Dennis


Rodman played basketball for the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio,


Texas where Dennis Rodman played basketball for the San Antonio


Spurs, and Chicago, Illinois where Dennis Rodman is currently


playing for the Chicago Bulls.


Character: Dennis Rodman. A pro basketball player who plays


for the Chicago Bulls. He averages 18.7 rebounds a game which


90% of the time is the best in the NBA. He is currently making


10 million dollars a year. He is divorced and has a daughter


named Alexis. He says Alexis is the only reason he is here


today.


Summary: On April of 1993 Dennis Rodman sat in his pick-up truck


with a gun in his lap deciding whether he should kill himself.


He was in depression at the time because the Detroit Pistons were


doing very poorly that year considering they were Champions of


the World just three years before that. The NBA had changed


Dennis Rodman into someone he didn\'t even know. It seemed as


though Dennis spent his life trying to be what others wanted him


to be. Once he realized he had to start living for himself,


people perceived him as being rebellious and as most people say


weird. Dennis Rodman just wants everyone to know who he really


is and to accept him for himself and to let him do his job.


Theme: I learned that Dennis Rodman is not as crazy as


everyone thinks he is. He is actually a very normal person. I


think the reason this book was released is because Dennis Rodman


has a very interesting life. People want to know what it is like


to be Dennis Rodman.


Opinion: I think this was a excellent book. The reason why I


say that is because Dennis Rodman was not afraid nor ashamed to


say anything, he let it all go as he usually does.


I would recommend this book to anyone that finds Dennis


Rodman interesting and to anyone who is 14 to adult because of


the language Dennis Rodman uses in the book.
