Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. Signed. 406 pages. Published in 1992. The author's book-length account on subject. Now widely considered to be the single best book on Michael Jordan and sports superstardom. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Bob Greene's "Hang Time". A triumphant achievement. "By nature a hero-worshipper, he surely found a figure worthy of adulation in basketball superstar Michael Jordan. Over the course of two seasons (in which Chicago won two championships and Jordan was twice named the Most Valuable Player in the NBA), Greene and Jordan conversed about many subjects, but principally about the athlete's adjustment to fame; his mostly unpublicized charitable contributions; and his reaction to adverse publicity, much of it undeserved. Jordan is candid (his teammates are not his friends), careful of his image (he always meets the media in a suit after the games), and relatively down-to-earth" (Publisher's Weekly). "A vivid, enlightening portrait of the world's ultimate sports star" (The Chicago Tribune). An absolute "must-have" title for Bob Greene and Michael Jordan collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by Bob Greene. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a sports classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BOB GREENE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0385425880. Bookseller Inventory # 11032

About the Author:
Bob Greene is a syndicated columnist for the Chicago Tribune. His column appears in more than two hundred newspapers in the United States, Canada, and Japan. For nine years his "American Beat" was the lead column in Esquire magazine; as a broadcast journalist he served as contributing correspondent for "ABC News Nightline." He is the author of thirteen other books, including the national bestsellers Be True to Your School and Good Morning, Merry Sunshine. Most recently he has written, with his sister, journalist D. G. Fulford, To Our Children's Children: Preserving Family Histories for Generations to Come, and has published his first novel, All Summer Long, which has been praised by reviewers as "the perfect summertime novel," "as refreshing as a tall glass of iced tea on a July afternoon," and "the literary equivalent of one more night's cruise through the drive-in, your arm around your steady while the Beach Boys sing about young love and endless summers."
