Additional Information

Charles Barkley has never been shy about expressing his opinions. Michael Jordan once said that we all want to say the things that Barkley says, but we don’t dare. But even die-hard followers of the all-time NBA great, the star of TNT’s Inside the NBA and CNN’s TalkBack Live, will be astonished by just how candid and provocative he is in this book—and just how big his ambitions are. Though he addresses weighty issues with a light touch and prefers to stir people to think by making them laugh, there’s nothing Charles Barkley shies away from here—not race, not class, not big money, not scandal, not politics, not personalities, nothing. “Early on,” says Washington Post columnist and ESPN talk show host Michael Wilbon in his Introduction, “Barkley made his peace with mixing it up, and decided the consequences were very much worth it to him. And that makes him as radically different in these modern celebrity times as a 6-foot-4-inch power forward.”

If there’s one thing Charles Barkley knows, it’s the crying need for honest, open discussion in this country—the more uncomfortable the subject, the more necessary the dialogue. And if the discussion leader can be as wise, irreverent, (occasionally) profane and (consistently) funny as Charles Barkley, so much the better. Many people are going to be shocked and scandalized by I May Be Wrong but I Doubt It, but many more will stand up and cheer. Like Molly Ivins or Bill O’Reilly, Charles Barkley is utterly his own thinker, and everything he says comes from deep reflection. One way or another, if more blood hasn’t reached your brain by the time you’ve finished this book, maybe you’ve been embalmed.

Barkley is entertaining on TV but this book is just boring. He makes his point about race relations in about the first three pages and then reiterates the same point over, and over, and over, and over, and over (get my point?). Every chapter is nothing but his opinions on black vs. white. I suppose some of his opinions are valid, but I just got sick of reading the same thing over and over. I was glad to be done with this book.
I am Mark, Emalee's husband and the book was for me. I really loved the book and it expanded my view and respect of Charles Barkley in multiple ways. He is clearly a smart guy, for those who might think he is a "dumb jock". Even if you are not a sports fan, you will likely enjoy this book.
I really enjoyed Charles barleys tell it like it is feelings in life. He makes a lot of sense and it reveals how much he really cares for people.
