Reviews - What do customers think about Maravich?

An Amazing Look Into Pete Maravich's Life  Mar 5, 2008
My boyfriend bought me this book for Christmas and I loved it! I love my biographies chock full of details, and MARAVICH doesn't disappoint. For serious fans, it even has game stats. I especially loved that Pistol Pete's widow and sons collaborated with the authors, which gives the writing a personal touch. Better yet, the book has personal letters and diary entries from Pete. What more could you want?

The guy had an amazing life and died way too tragically, and I really enjoyed reading everything and more in MARAVICH.
My dad loved this book.  Feb 8, 2008
I bought this book for my dad (at his request). He read it in only a few days. I have never seen my dad read anything that quickly. So, it must have been really good. If you know a basketball fan that was born in the 40s or the 50s - this is a great book for them.
Maravich...a Must Read for Basketball Fans  Jan 29, 2008
Pete Maravich would have been my age had he lived. It was one of the worst days in my life when he died. The man could do things with a basketball and to his opponents that no other player could do during his time...and he did things that were not even imagined by those with whom he played with or against. Were there better shooters? Yes, but only one...Jerry West. Were there better ball-handlers? No! Was there anyone more fun to watch play this wonderful game of basketball? No! Think about it. He averaged 44 points per game in a 4-quarter college basketball game with no time clock and no 3 point line. This is the only significant sports record that will NEVER be least not during this century.

It is frankly boring to watch the NBA now since Bird, Jordan and Johnson have left the game. I don't care to see the countless tatoos with gang-related symbols on most every body. Maravich put out 100% every time he played. So did Jordan, West, Bird and Johnson. Now we have the prima-donnas demanding higher and higher salaries and then complain about earning only 14 million per year. The NBA is in trouble and will only make a "come-back" when someone like Maravich comes along again. So what is the new "new" thing that will bring the fans back to the NBA? My guess is that it will be someone who can inspire us again...just like Pete Maravich did. Read the book. If you know anything about basketball, you will thoroughly enjoy it.
Maravich would have liked MARAVICH   Jul 10, 2007
I can summarize by saying that MARAVICH is a very
quick read. Each chapter's end makes you eager to
start the next. Once you pick it up, it is very hard to put it down.

"True" Pistol Pete fans and readers
who approach the book with some background
knowledge and genuine interest in Pete Maravich will
like this book. In MARAVICH,
readers get depth, meaty research and relevant
detail. I've read other accounts of Pete's life and compared to MARAVICH, they only scratch the surface. MARAVICH has all
the basic ingredients you'd a lot more.

The highest compliment I could give MARAVICH (the book) is this....
I believe that Pete himself would have wholeheartedly endorsed it.
He would appreciate and be able to relate
to the extra-effort and attention-to-detail that was
over-and-above the basic minimum research that all
good authors must do. That's because Pete approached life
the same way. If he was committed to something
(basketball, Press, family, Christianity, fitness,
diet, etc.) he wasn't satisfied with cutting corners. Instead, Pistol Pete gave it his all,
dove into every aspect of it, got into the details,
and went the extra mile.

It only makes sense that an author who is writing about Pete's life would need to do the same. Wayne Federman did.

I give it an A+. Great subject, well-written book and a very smooth read. I highly recommend it.
A Great In-Depth Look at The Pistol  May 28, 2007
This is the first Maravich biography that I have read, and I was impressed by the thoroughness of research. From the story of Pete's grandparents in Pennsylvania to his untimely death on a church basketball court to the current status of his wife and children, this book tells it all. Though he failed to achieve his ultimate dream--winning a championship--he ended up with something much better during the last five years of his life--inner peace as a gift from God. I witnessed Pete's final freshman game in Knoxville, Tennesse in 1967, and it was the most stunning sports event that I have ever seen. I had not seen such magic on the court before, and was immediately awed by his unforgettable performance. His freshman game-by-game statistics are not given in the book, and neither is the date of that game. I do know that he scored 741 points his freshman year, and those are not included in his college records. This is a wonderful book.
