“The Mamba Mentality: How I Play” is an autobiography by Kobe “The Black Mamba” Bryant, the late NBA legend who is widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. This book takes us into the mind of Kobe Bryant and shows us how he approached certain situations. As the book goes on, Kobe’s passion and fearlessness was always bright and clear. Whether it was trying to take down Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls or stop the Big Three and the mighty Celtics in the NBA Finals, Kobe Bryant would always attack the opposition with his precision and attention to detail. It doesn’t just stop there though; Kobe Bryant was always in the gym and working to improve his craft, even if he had just won an NBA championship. However, Bryant was not always a legend; there was a time when he was a newcomer into the league. Kobe did a great job when it came to showing us how he asked veterans around the NBA about tips and tricks that could improve his game. This book is a very detailed journey through the mind of a master of basketball, so some core knowledge about the game should be known to get the full effect and understanding that this book offers. However, it should be emphasized that this book isn’t just about basketball; anyone can achieve their dreams if they apply the lessons taught in this book. Andrew D.
