In the wake of his retirement from professional basketball, Kobe "The Black Mamba" Bryant decided to share his vast knowledge and understanding of the game to take readers on an unprecedented journey to the core of the legendary "Mamba mentality." Citing an obligation and an opportunity to teach young players, hardcore fans, and devoted students of the game how to play it "the right way," The Mamba Mentality takes us inside the mind of one of the most intelligent, analytical, and creative basketball players ever. In his own words, Bryant reveals his famously detailed approach and the steps he took to prepare mentally and physically to not just succeed at the game, but to excel.

Theyll also get fascinating granular detail as he breaks down specific plays and match-ups from throughout his career. Bryants detailed accounts are paired with stunning photographs by the Hall of Fame photographer Andrew D.

Bernstein.

The combination of Bryants narrative and Bernsteins photos make The Mamba Mentality an unprecedented look behind the curtain at the career of one of the worlds most celebrated and fascinating athletes.
