    A good story about a great basketball player, but he really bounces over parts of his life story that he doesn't like. It really wasn't a complete autobiography in my opinion.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it's about basketball , which is my favorite sport. "Look, son, if this is what you want to do, then that is what you should do. Don't look back. Just look ahead." (Chapter 9, pg 43). This book is about Larry's life from high school all they way to the pros where he played in the NBA for the Boston Celtics. There are certain decisions in life that you will have to make that are key turning points to adulthood. Larry didn't have the best childhood, with his dad committing suicide and his family not having much money. He had to work to make more money for his family at a young age. I would say the biggest turning point for me was his decision to leave Indiana University. He decided to leave because it was the best thing for him even though everybody was telling him what a bad decision he was making. That shows a sense of adulthood because he was making decisions for himself and what was best for him. He ends up transferring to Indiana State, where he has a stellar college career. I recommend this book to people who love sports especially basketball. Also to people who just want to read about a kid that went from having nothing to being inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame. It a great read and I feel most people will enjoy it!

    A fun, quick read. Narrative-wise and structurally this book is kind of a mess. Bird just takes the reader through his career up until the point of writing (1989). I personally found 'When the Game Was Ours', his book with Magic Johnson, more insightful. There were three interesting points that he raised, though. The first was his disregard of triple-doubles and how they don't indicate how good a player is (c.f. Russell Westbrook).

The second point was that the value of the corner three is much higher than other shots (this was 20+ years before analytics would prove this). The third was that the NBA schedule creates situations where teams will not be able to play at their peak, which is a relevant current issue.

    If you enjoy reading autobiographies, then the book Drive: The Story of My Life by Larry Bird is a great option for you. I really enjoyed this book because basketball is easily my favorite sport, and I love filling my brain with more information about the game. Larry Bird is one of the most famous basketball players of all time. Learning from Larry Bird’s opinion on basketball and his personal life is really interesting to me. I liked that Larry Bird gave an in-depth look at his early life. Usu If you enjoy reading autobiographies, then the book Drive: The Story of My Life by Larry Bird is a great option for you.

I liked that Larry Bird gave an in-depth look at his early life. Usually, when you think of Larry Bird, you think of him playing for the Boston Celtics or even when he played in college for Indiana State. I never knew Larry Bird grew up in a poor family in the small town of French Lick, Indiana. Also, I never knew how much he struggled to choose a college to play in, since he doesn’t like big cities and fame. I don’t want to spoil the rest, but I really liked how the book gave a detailed look on his early life that a lot of people probably don’t know about. Overall, this book was very good. I don’t like reading books, however this book encourages me to read more. Larry Bird is one of my favorite athletes of all time, and I loved reading more about him.

    Drive Larry Bird is one of the greatest players to ever step onto the basketball court in the NBA. Despite his great basketball ability Larry never often spoke to the press about his left and much of it was left a mystery to his fans.

Despite his great basketball ability Larry never often spoke to the press about his left and much of it was left a mystery to his fans. This book is a great book to really get into the Life of Larry Bird and learn that there was more there than just a great player. Many didn’t know that he grew up in French Lick, Indiana with his family and faced many problems financially. Although he wasn’t rolling in money he still found time to play basketball every day, even when he broke his ankle he found a way to get shots up every day. Larry never was shown the easy way to success he did it the hard way. He was faced with the death of his father at such a young age when he committed suicide. Larry didn’t let this stop him though, he felt that it is just what his father had to do for the family and Larry stepped up and it drove him to become a better player to reach his goal that his dad also had for him. Larry went on to be a star for his high school basketball team and later joined the Indiana State basketball team where he led them to a championship title and finished his college career averaging over 30 points a game which is still in the top five today. He was drafted 6th overall by the Boston Celtics in 1979 where he helped turn the organization around and won the rookie of the year in his first year and also lead them to 3 NBA titles and win 3 MVP awards along the way. This was one of the best books I have ever read because it wasn’t just throwing out stats about players of just telling me what he did in his career, but it really gave you the background to the player and how he got to where he was. Many time people just think stars are giving the red line to their fame but really there not, he faced adversity and fought through it, he went through many things that some people never have to face in their life but never gave up. Larry Bird is a true idol, and will always be one of the greatest players to play the game, along with his rival who is often talked about in the book Magic Johnson. I recommend this book to anyone who has a passion for sports and to really read into the life of one of the greatest players to ever play the game.

    This is a pretty straightforward read about Larry’s take on major moments in his Basketball life. He takes you through players, coaches, special games and playoffs. He speaks little of his personal life but that was to be expected. It’s always been about the Basketball with Bird. A cherished childhood memory for me the 85/86 Celtics, Dream team indeed.

    I was never a fan of Larry Bird when I was growing up. I was given this book by my father one year and could not get myself to read more than a few chapters. I finally finished it for my literature class. I felt the reading seemed a little tedious at times. I do have a new appreciation for Larry and what it takes to be a big sports figure in our culture. If you like learning about sports and specifically Larry or the Celtics, then you would enjoy reading this book.

    Great book... simple and direct as the world was in 90's. Bird is a nice character, loves his sport and is a much more decent guy than todays sports celebrities. And also he had some vision to find out that Michael Jordan would rule the basketball world. Hes very polite with his colleagues and respects hierarchy and the fans. Really deserved the legend status. Great book... simple and direct as the world was in 90's. Bird is a nice character, loves his sport and is a much more decent guy than todays sports celebrities.

    Larry Bird is a great guy, and this book supports that. But haven't there happened any other negative things in his life than his father's suicide? The book is actually TOO bright, and also not that good written. It doesn't create a very good flow of reading. Larry Bird is a great guy, and this book supports that.

    A delightfully-bonkers encapsulation of the pre-MJ era, when Bird and Magic Johnson traded off winning championships every year. It's fun hearing Bird's behind the scenes stories of his Celtics and Indiana State teams, but what I found most fascinating was his account of his childhood.

It's fun hearing Bird's behind the scenes stories of his Celtics and Indiana State teams, but what I found most fascinating was his account of his childhood. He came from absolutely nothing in French Lick, Indiana -- his family couldn't even afford a car. His dad felt bad that he couldn't provide, and so decided to commit suicide one day, a tragedy to which a sad-but-not overwhelmed Bird dedicates all of one page. Bird didn't even start playing basketball until high school, and soon developed the skills (and the height) to win acceptance to Bobby Knight's Indiana program. Bird arrived to the school with, basically, the clothes on his back. Feeling like a poor, out-of-place hick, he just left, hitchhiking home and getting a job at a grocery store or something. His friends and family finally convinced him to give college another try. He got up at dawn to practice free throws, but by the time he was drafted he'd never given ANY thought to the pros. Didn't watch them, didn't know anything about them. ETC. Like I said, bonkers. All of this craziness is written in the homespun style you'd expect, and though Bird's politics are predictably retrograde, he is generous in his assessments of everyone he's played with and for. Definitely recommended for NBA fans, or just for anyone who likes to raise their eyebrows in bewilderment.

    I loved reading this book because it gave a firsthand description of everything that happens and Larry Bird gives a very indepth description of every player or coach he comes along giving every player you once knew a new face in your mind. The only parts i did not like in the book was when it came to the Celtics trade acquisition or free agent signings,because afterprobably the third or fourth one it gets onfucing on who is still on the team.

This book answers one of our essential questions because it shows people's values and belief in the sense that on road trips everyone does something different some people go to pray some people go out and party while the book also shows how some people's values change as they become more mature. It is hard to fail when you try your hardest,“I’ve got a theory that if you give 100% all of the time, somehow things will work out in the end.” (Bird 184) in everything he did Larry put 100% in and he reaped the rewards pretty fast. I wouold recomend this book to any sports lover because it shows how superstars become superstars.

    Larry Bird has had such an impact on the game of basketball. The book dives deep into his life and how hard he works in order to be one of the best. The title of the book is perfect because of Larry Bird’s inner drive and his commitment to the game and his team. It’s really interesting to know about Larry’s life before he became a star in the NBA. I really liked the focus on not just his life in basketball, but also his life at home.

I love how the book has a great interest in explaining the rivalry between Larry and the Lakers point guard back in the 80s, Magic Johnson. I never got to see the rivalry between these two great players because it was such a long time ago, but having Larry explain to us what his relationship with him was like was great to read. I am not a big fan of books in general, but reading about a great basketball player and the struggles he has had is really interesting and a great book for any sports fan to read. I wish there were more sports books like this one.

    I’m not a sports fan, but Larry Bird was legendary so when he writes a book called Drive The Story of My Life, I suppose I was expecting more about what drives him and inspirational writing with useful takeaways to apply in our own lives along with the story about his life. This was 90% basketball. This happened in this game that happened in that practice. Who scored points. How each player played that night. Then to add to that the writing was terrible.

Although I would hold accountable the guy who is credited as writing it with him. Bird knew he wasn’t a writer so hired someone. I probably would have rated it lower, two stars are baseline for respect I suppose. If you love basketball and watched a lot of the games then you might really like this book. One thing I do agree with, Celtics are a legendary franchise!

It was gratifying to see Bird's views on 80's NBA basketball. I enjoyed Bird's demeanor to situations. Among his memorable views, he didn't care about what Isiah and Rodman said about him and he even respected his alcoholic father's decision to kill himself. An internal thought I had through much of the reading was how it seems contradictory that as much as he says he is a private man, he has relinquished this information for commercial use. I'm unfamiliar with biographies but the structure of this one was great. There seemed to be a progression of learning through his life and an open future to his career. It started off a bit slow, with his childhood and time at Indiana State, but I greatly enjoyed the latter section on his professional career and the smaller sections on his views on arenas, referees, and players. I've watched numerous Larry Bird interviews and the flow in this book didn't feel like Bird was writing it. Bird speaks in short sentences and he speaks with pauses. He doesn't go as in depth. Here it felt like Bird was talking in in-depth, run-on sentence and it stripped away Bird's style. I tried to imagine Bird speaking through the words but it was impossible. A larger issue I found was that Bird's so humble. You'd think that's not really a negative trait but it gives a fog to Bird's greatness. He mentions more bad games and injures than good games and healthy periods. Every great game he played is overshadowed by him applauding teamwork or the heroic clutch finishes of Dennis Johnson or some role player. He mentions his MVPs in reference to how supportive he was of Magic winning his first. This is the guy that won three in a row and he mentions the first one to how another player said he'd win one now that that player wasn't distracting Bird, and then later when Magic stops his streak. But he's so humble that he talks great about his teammates and opponents more than himself. He talks about how much trouble he had with Dr. J in his first few years but Bird smoked him in the '81 playoff series and most contemporary views agree that Bird deserved the 1981 MVP over Dr. J. In all of this you forget that Larry Bird was top tier player, coming second in MVP voting four times and winning the award three times in a row. The man was a legend. By the end I was scratching myself asking how he could even be a top 15 player of all time. I watched old highlight videos and took a look at his career statistics to remind myself how great he was. He's definitely a top 10 player and possibly top 5. I found one few discrepancy with the biography compared with other interviews. He says he only trash talked with Michael Cooper once but Magic Johnson says they used to go at it all the time. Overall, it was fun to read. It should deserve five stars, because I would definitely read it again but at the same time I don't want to because I already did. It's five stars because it's Bird but it's four because it's a book about him, if that makes sense. Rating Update 26 May 2019 Four stars to three stars. There are four star sections with Bird detailing parts of his career, and the last chapter on his preferences, but the slow start and some sections are respectively two and three stars. September 1, 2019 Update With the adoption of my new rating system, a three star rating is befitting. The original review and rating update conform to the new rating system. The main reason behind retaining the three star-rating is explained in the rating update from May 26, 2019. January 1, 2019 Update I do not remember the contents of the second part in the book, which take up nearly half of the book (which is why I have outlined the rating in grey, despite the green inside color). For this reason, I will have to speculate and give broad ratings to each of the individual parts based on what was previous said in the review. For the third chapter, I find it appropriate to rate the entire chapter three stars because it was a smooth and pleasing read (three stars) for at least more than half of it. For the fourth chapter, there was nothing written in the review about it so I believe that it was an OK read. Part 1: Where I Come From. Pages one through sixty-six. Sixty-six pages. Two stars. Part 2: The Career. Pages sixty-nine through one hundred and ninety-five. One hundred and twenty-seven pages. Three stars. Part 3: Observations. Pages one hundred and ninety-nine through two hundred and fifty. Fifty-two pages. Four stars. Part 4: Where I Stand. Pages two hundred and fifty-three through two hundred and fifty-nine. Seven pages. Two stars. Seven hundred and thirty-five points divided by two hundred and fifty-two pages equals 2.92 stars. January 2, 2020 Update I have wondered if the book should be lowered to a two star-rating if the majority of the second part is two star-rated. I can't see this to be the case and find that the book is held to at least a 2.5 rating with the three and four star-rated content. March 17, 2020 Update Again, I have thought to lower the rating of the book to two stars. The holistic feeling for this novel is one of enjoyment: "I usually don't enjoy reading and this was a pleasure to read". I cannot lower the rating. The broad ratings I gave each part in the update from January 1, 2019, is this holistic feeling of appreciation and liking for the book. There is, overall, a liking for the three star-rated sections, and an extreme liking for the four star-rated sections, which allows for the ignorance of slower parts in these sections, which individually could be rated as two, three, and four star-rated portions.

    This was a book I'd wanted to read for a long time. It was very interesting to get a more in depth look of the inner workings of his mind - key plays that have stood out to him over time, teammates he enjoyed playing with, and to learn more of his family and upbringing especially since he's been very quiet on these aspects of his life with the media. This book was written almost as if he was talking making it an easy to read, easy to follow story. I was disappointed there wasn't more detail abou This was a book I'd wanted to read for a long time.

    Interesting book in that it gives insights into Bird that aren't apparent from following his basketball career, although the book focuses mostly on his NBA basketball career. He comes across as compassionate, professional and competitive, and as one who never wants to forget his impoverished small town roots. His level of detail of memory of games is amazing. Written in 1989 while he was still playing.

    A 4.3 rating, it was hard to put a fine rating on it without being bias, the man not only exceeds in basketball but provides a good narrative, with some parts being a little loose but excusable. I only knew the man via stories of his trash talking, notable skills, his rough upbringing, this book shares his thoughts as he progresses, i recommend watching select highlights to understand the book as he goes through the years to increase excitement when reading it.

    Book was a little all over the place, and some of the chronology didn’t make sense. However, still an interesting read and great insight for someone who didn’t grow up in the Larry Bird era. Or doesn’t follow basketball that much in general. Rating is for the book’s structure and organization, but being from Indiana I felt it was important to know a little bit about a Hoosier legend. Book accomplished that.

    If you love old-school, pre-mass free agency basketball, and legends of the game - or of any sport - read this. Larry Legend was an all-time great (one of the NBA's all-time Top 50 Team), and has a page-turning biographical style that will make this book a great read over a weekend.
