    I'm going to keep it 100: if KG merely spit on the page, I would've squealed and called it art. I am what is known as a Day One fan since this man stepped into the league. Been a Ride or Die the whole 12 years at Minnesota on to the glory years at Boston and I literally sat on my couch and cried actual tears that fateful day that Kev and Paul Pierce were traded to Brooklyn. All that to say, this book was getting an automatic four stars from me just for existing.

All that to say, this book was getting an automatic four stars from me just for existing. What an absolute pleasure it is to spend quality time with one of your all-time favorite athletes. I learned new things about KG and gained an even deeper appreciation for his intelligence and work ethic. I was concerned about the encyclopedia style format but it's actually pretty clever. For the most part, the book does move chronologically although there are some topics that are out of sequence. Nevertheless, it isn't hard to follow. My main gripe is that there just isn't enough! I'm greedy: I want every single detail, especially about the Boston years. Truthfully, the book lands at a 4.5 but I'm gonna round up. After all, it's KG.

    Look, this is a fun book for any basketball fan, and especially any admirer of the unique energy and philosophy of KG. But KG is a really smart, introspective guy - with a crazy poetic voice - and this book ultimately only scratches the surface of that. I imagine that was by design - cultivating a brand, that sort of thing. But I look forward to that point down the road when KG is old and wise, and gives zero shits, and really digs deep. I know he hardly thinks of himself as a "literary" guy (th Look, this is a fun book for any basketball fan, and especially any admirer of the unique energy and philosophy of KG.

I know he hardly thinks of himself as a "literary" guy (thats part of the basis for the encyclopedia format), but he IS a philosopher, and a poet, and the scaffolding is there for something legitimately great.

    If you're a KG or basketball fan, this book is a fantastic, five star read. If hoops isn't your thing, I don't recommend. If you're a KG or basketball fan, this book is a fantastic, five star read. If hoops isn't your thing, I don't recommend.

    4.5 stars. Unorthodox in its narrative form. Not totally sure if this is too short or just right. Some of these stories I have heard in interviews, but most of them are new and often fascinating. Gave me a renewed respect for Garnett as a player and as a man of great character and great convictions.

    KG A to Z was a solid book but felt incomplete. The A-Z format was unique but fell flat. I gained a lot of perspective from learning about his upbringing and home life. It always amazes me to hear stories about genuinely self-made people. My rating is a three/five because I wanted a lot more from his chapters on Mark Cuban, Uncut Gems and his routine/ habits that made him the beast he was. I have a ton of respect for Kevin after reading this. Solid read if you're a fan of the sport but it won't b KG A to Z was a solid book but felt incomplete. The A-Z format was unique but fell flat.

    KG was always one of my favorite basketball players. If you love basketball, this is a must-read. KG shares a ton about greats like Kobe, and LeBron, as well as the ins and outs of being an NBA star. He talks a lot about his notable teammates like Paul Pierce, Rondo, Chauncey Billups, and many others. This is also a very creative format. I hope KG writes more in the future. Hall-of-fame basketball player with a great spirit and genuine heart for others.

    Kevin Garnett speaks his mind on many topics in his biography that is listed like an encyclopedia. Basketball fans will enjoy his take on the game and players of past and present. He also brings up sensitive subjects as well. A great read, but please keep Kevin's background in mind when reading this book.

    Shout out to KG dammit! He’s always been one of my favorite basketball players. He had a strong, intense personality on the court and it translated over to the book. This book is all over the place and I love it. Basketball dorks like myself will enjoy the fuck outta this! Always been one of the realest out there!

    Really enjoyed this read. Next to MJ, KG is my favorite basketball player of all time. Written in the form of an encyclopedia, if was refreshing to rehash somethings I already knew and learn a lot more I didn’t. This book is different but if you know anything about KG then you know that’s his MO. Highly recommend.

    Really good. Unorthodox structure, which settled down nicely - and built on itself well. Some interesting, moving, amusing, and insightful snippets from an long and lauded NBA career; and also life lessons and observations. I listened to the audiobook, and the narration was also very good. If you're a fan of KG, then this is a must read. Really good.

    He's been my favorite player for basically my whole life. I loved how he talks about sport as art and the connections he makes to sport, art, and music. He's an outside the box thinker and a one of one character. He's been my favorite player for basically my whole life.

    I liked the book set-up; easy book to pick up and read a few pages. KG is an interesting guy; warrior on the court and surprisingly enjoyable when capturing beliefs, mantras in the book. I would recommend this book to any hoops fan.

    The format isn't for everyone, I listen to the audio version instead of reading the print version so I may have had a different experience but I personally quite liked it. If you love KG or 00's basketball you will probably enjoy this book.

    Bump this up at least a half-star if you are a KG fan, Celtics fan, T-Wolves fan, or just interested in the modern NBA. Bump it down a little if you are none of the above, though KG is still a really interesting person with a fascinating life story.

    This book accurately captures the spirit, talent and heart of Kevin Garnett through his stories and philosophies in an A-Z format.

    Really enjoyed the format. It felt straight from the heart and I like how he didn’t hold back. Fans of KG, the NBA, and especially the Timberwolves, must read this one.

    Good biography about Kevin Garnett written in an interesting style/format. He organizes the content alphabetically with short subsections and pictures throughout. 3.5
