The Mamba Mentality by Kobe Bryant
Review Date : November 11, 2019

The Mamba Mentality: How I Play by Kobe Bryant  is a nonfiction narrative by one of the most revered basketball players of our time —Kobe Bryant — a narrative that captures, with unusual clarity, his idea of the art of the game and the secrets to his success.  The author pulls readers into the depths of his mind and allows them a feel of his analytical skills. The reader encounters a genius of basketball in this narrative, a tale that is filled with beautiful and inspiring anecdotes, insights about the art of winning in basketball and in life, and what constitutes The Mamba Mentality and how to make it work. 

In his book, readers will discover secrets into what it takes to succeed in basketball and Bryant shares insights into how he prepares for the games and what happens when he is in the court. The author lays bare the secrets of his success and details how he prepared —physically and psychologically — and how he played through injury. The gripping narrative is enriched by delectable images from the Hall of Fame photographer, Andrew D. Bernstein. 

While The Mamba Mentality: How I Play can be read as a memoir, it is an intelligently written and captivating story of what it takes to succeed not only in basketball but in life. In this book are powerful lessons from a Master player, a genius who didn’t just imagine the strategies, but made them real in his own game. A must read for sports fans and anyone who wants to make a difference. The lyricism of the prose combines with the author’s wit to make for an utterly enjoyable read.  But you won’t ignore the profound lessons of the book.
