When Sports Illustrated put him on their cover, they sold more issues than any other in a decade (except the swimsuit edition). Why? Because Dennis Rodman is not just the NBA's greatest rebounder - he's America's most outrageous, outspoken, and provocative athlete. With his body-covering tattoos and ever-changing fluorescent hair, Rodman's off-the-court antics have captivated sports fans as much as his record-breaking performances. In Bad as I Wanna Be, Rodman shares his candid opinions on everything from fame, money, and race relations to sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. He discusses his NBA championships with the Pistons and Bulls, his relationships with teammate Michael Jordan and old flame Madonna, his troubled adolescence, and all the controversies that have enthralled the public. Shocking yet sensitive, Rodman tells it like it is in this compelling, no-holds-barred memoir. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " The book design for this is outrageous--so many fonts, so many sizes, so many blurry snapshots. The writing is pretty bad, it's poorly organized as a book, and there are some very repetitive chapters. Still, I am so fascinated with this book: with Dennis Rodman, and this ghostwriter, and how this book came to be. Is this Dennis Rodman's voice? From reading interviews, it seems fairly accurate. How do these insightful, if somewhat problematic, chapters on race and gender line up with a mostly sensitive but slightly exploitative chapter on Madonna? "

    " That the size of the text should all be the same unless you are a child. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don Incognito | 1/30/2014

    " I read this book little by little at my library, and came to admire Dennis Rodman's thoughts on basketball enough that I'm very willing to ignore his ridiculous personal life). He was a great basketball player in the eighties mold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/22/2014

    " I was surprised and impressed with his emotional candor. However, in light of later events, I wonder: was Rodman BSing us? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven Salaita | 1/22/2014

    " I actually read this thing when I was a junior in college. I don't remember much about it other than Rodman discusses Madonna's proclivities in bed. The seemingly-unnecessary extra stars aren't for Rodman; they're for me for being stupid or ballsy enough to admit that I read a book by Dennis Rodman. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandra | 1/20/2014

    " I'd wanted to read this book since I was turned on by the cover when I saw it as a child. haha. The book doesn't dissapoint in fun facts and page turning shockers... but, I will say that he should've had more help writing it because he repeats himself and commends himself constantly. "
