Book Reviews & Awards

• “Jerry Krause is easily one of the most complicated, fascinating figures I have encountered in all of my decades writing about the NBA. Deeply wounded from his early life, Krause somehow managed to fashion his pain into a memorable career in sports management. His collision with Phil Jackson, Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in Chicago in the 1990s proved epic in its impact. Lukasz Muniowski has captured all of this in his fine biography, which offers a fuller understanding of Krause’s story and perspective.”—Roland Lazenby, author, Magic: The Life of Earvin “Magic” Johnson

• “In my book, I portray Jordan as a modern-day Achilles; Muniowski does an excellent job of portraying basketball’s version of Agamemnon—Jerry Krause. The two characters (in the myth and on the Chicago Bulls) did not see eye to eye, but they were victorious together (Troy, 6 NBA championships). While all the glory went to Jordan, Krause was either overlooked or vilified. Muniowski finally gives voice and justice to one of the most enigmatic and successful managers/scouts in professional sports history. Fascinating read!”—Tomasz Jacheć, author of The Myth of Michael Jordan in Popular Culture
