The Big Dipper

Wilt Chamberlain is an athlete of iconic status and was easily my favorite NBA player growing up. This book gives you a great look behind the scenes and deep insight to this larger than life superstar. A must read for any Wilt fan.

Wilts buddy Bob Kashey

Great book. I loved every page except page 155. That Bob Kashey character can't be real. I know a Bob Kashey that hangs out at Chile's in Lake Mary, Florida and this can't be him although he keeps insisting it is. In any case, it is a great book, well worth the investment.

One Of The Best

Being a loyal Laker fan of the 70's, I had to read this book on one of my favorite players. This in-depth book will not disappoint. The book does reveal alot that went on behind the scenes and not all of it is in a positive light.Still, Wilt was not just a great basketball player, he was a warm, genuine human being. They just don't make them like this anymore.

A Triple Double

Multi-faceted book on the life of Wilt Chamberlain, arguably one of America's greatest athletes, hits on every level - it's knowledgable, comprehensive, and a fun read. The presentation is tremendously researched and well-paced, touching each significant stage of Wilt's life without overstaying its welcome. And anyway, who am I to argue with the review of one of Philly's top sportswriters, Mr. Mulligan? A special treat for those of us who always had a fascination with The Dipper, and highly recommended for anyone who's a fan of sports.


As a Phila. sportswriter who has marveled at The Dipper and his movie-script life in and out of basketball for 40-plus years, I finally found the absolute definitive Chamberlain biography that perhaps Wilt could not have done better, were he still with us. Like Wilt, this is the Greatest. Educational, informative, anecdotal, respectful, fun and well done. Thanks Bob.
