Anyone who's a WNBA fan of any team other than the LA Sparks knows that the Sparks have gained the reputation of being the team you "love to hate"! But also, as a WNBA fan you have to give credit and your respect to all the women who have been responsible for the love and excitement we have for the league. They have blazed the trail for all the young talents we see today.

Lisa Leslie is definitely one of those women. In her book, "Don't Let The Lipstick Fool You", you will get a better view of Lisa the person as well as the athlete. She shares her life, her beliefs, and her career. I truly enjoyed the book and highly recommend it to any WNBA fan.

My 10 year old daughter and I are reading this book together which is really nice. We are both big fans of Lisa Leslie! It's great for my daughter to read how Lisa Leslie worked hard to be successful and that it wasn't just handed to her.

I feel like I know Lisa now after reading her book. I not only like her as a player but as a person. It was an easy read and inspiring along the way.
As a long-time WNBA and NCAAW hoops fan, I was eager to read Lisa Leslie's memoir. I was not disappointed. She doesn't spare herself as she reports on her challenges growing up in a single-parent household.

She was much more at home on the basketball court. It's shocking to think she might have played for Tennessee if she hadn't had a horrendous racially charged experience in Shelbyville, TN, just before her campus visit. I hadn't followed the coaching changes at USC and the Sparks, but Leslie shows how te team responded to those challenges.

While some fans will enjoy her detailed description of her fairytale romance and birth of her first child, I'd have liked to see less about her current family even more about basketball. After all, we didn't pick up this book to learn about a normal upscale family in the 21st century. I suspect that 99% of this book's readers are WNBA fans who want to go behind the scenes.

There we're disappointed, Lisa's very careful not to "dish." The only conflict she describes is related to Lauren Jackson, a player I recognize from living in Seattle and being a Storm fan. Yes, I've been in the crowd chanting, "Beat LA" and clapping along with everybody else.

We do hear about Lisa Leslie's long friendship with Dawn Staley. I remember Dawn being interviewed just before the WNBA champtionship game with Charlotte vs LA. The interviewer asked, "You call each other every week. What about this week?" Dawn said tersely, "No friends during a tournament." Lisa doesn't add much more.

I would like to hear more about Lisa's interactions with the younger stars, such as Diana Taurasi, and the veterans, like the legendary Teresa Weatherspoon. I'd like to hear about more games besides the All-Stars, where Lisa took her position personally.

The WNBA will probably welcome this book (and I'm surprised they're not promoting it more). Lisa projects the perfect image of a wholesome, family-oriented basketball player. She even likes to cook! But I think we fans are ready for some edgy comments and inside stories.

Eventually some of the edgier players will probably be drawn to write their own stories. When will Diana Taurasi write her memoir? That's the one I'm waiting for and hope to read it in my lifetime.
