  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket
  • An autobiography by Wilt Chamberlain and David Shaw
  • Over 310 pages with many great black and white photos
  • SECOND PRINTING 1973
  • Copyright © 1973 by Wilt Chamberlain and David Shaw
  • " WILT -So candid and outspoken, it makes "Ball Four" look timid.

    WILT -A superstar and superego with a driving passion to compete, yet a master of the "put-on."

    "-I can pass a football better than Joe Namath and drive better than Dan Gurney and cook better than Graham Kerr. To be perfectly honest, probably only two of these three statements are true."

    WILT -On court or in bed, he can't stand coming in second.

    "Whether it was painting houses and selling junk as a kid, or playing basketball or making love-I want to be the best at it. "

    WILT -A shrewd and outspoken participant in the 1968 Republican national convention.

    "When I saw Ph.D.s and other people of that caliber volunteering to wash dishes and run errands, just so they could say they were close to Richard [Nixon] and his top advisors, it reminded me a lot of the starry-eyed groupies and go-fers who hang around sports arenas. " "

    " When you're famous, black, and over seven feet tall, you soon discover that there's no place to hide-not even from yourself. So Wilt hides nothing. And he's seen just about everything. "

    " If there's a more candid and revealing book about basketball or the life of a superstar, it's yet to be written. "

    " Chamberlain holds just about every record in the game, knows most every player, and says exactly what he thinks about stars like Bill Russell, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Rick Barry, or coaches like Bill Sharman, Red Auerbach, Neil Johnson, and Bill van Breda Kolff. He takes you from his highly controversial college years at Kansas right through the current NBA season " [at time of publication] "-throwing verbal punches all the way. "

    " But "Wilt" is much more than a book about basketball.
    For Chamberlain is a sophisticated world traveler with gargantuan appetites for people, places, and just plain fun. He talks about the celebrities he's known, his million-dollar house, his friends, his enemies, his women-with wit and perception. And most important, about his views: on being black in white America, on supporting Nixon in '68, on Agnew, on sex, on love, on marriage. "

    " A lot of players are going to hate this book.
    A lot of fans and readers are going to love it. "

    According to the back cover:
    " " We intended, we said, to write a book that was not just another sports book, not just another black book, not just another celebrity book-and not just another one of those first-person books in which the protagonist attributes all his success to good luck and the help of everyone he's ever known ...
    we wanted a book that would capture and reveal Wilt Chamberlain, the man, as he really is-a complex, diverse, immensely self-assured and self-possessed human being."

    And that's just what this no-holds-barred autobiography is all about. "

    This book is in good condition with minor wear to the cover.

    No torn or ripped pages.
    The side edges of the pages have one small red dot and a few light dirt marks, mostly visible from the side view.
