I have this fantasy that I can live my life like a tiger in the jungle--eating whatever I want, having sex whenever I want, and roaming around butt naked, wild and free...It sounds difficult and complicated, but it doesn't have to be.
Everything you need to set yourself free is right there inside you. If you close your eyes and concentrate, you can feel it in the blood rushing through your veins and the thumping of your heart. When you can feel your inner spirit, peace will overcome you, and you'll be ready to break through that mirror or fly through that window and flourish. Or it may be something as simple as opening a door and stepping into a land you've been checking out all along.
The Wild Side may be right there in front of you...

Perhaps you're thinking that two books by and about Dennis Rodman are at least one book too many. Nevertheless, Walk on the Wild Side, the sequel to the bestselling Bad as I Wanna Be, continues Rodman's story, interspersed with his singular views on everything from sex to drugs to rock-and-roll. Certainly Rodman is outrageous, but this book reveals his admirable willingness to stick to his guns; he abhors bigotry in any form, eschews illegal drugs, and defends his right--and presumably the rights of others--to express his individuality as he sees fit. If Rodman's intentions are honorable, his execution is often immature in the extreme--head-butting referees in defense of his independence is hardly admirable behavior. Still, Rodman's appeal goes deeper than his bad-boy image or his tie-dyed hair. There is something oddly sweet about Dennis Rodman's naïve faith in the redemptive powers of sex, in the individual's ability to constantly remake him or herself in a better image, and in the basic American virtues of hard work, self-reliance and patriotism--however strangely he might choose to express them.
Even those readers willing to consider Rodman's particular view of the world might be put off by the act of reading Walk on the Wild Side. Sentences in boldface, words and phrases that are capitalized or highlighted in black, and paragraphs presented in a different typeface--all for no apparent reason--leap from every page, merely print pyrotechnics that distract from Rodman's message. But maybe those fans who can get past Dennis Rodman's outrageous persona also will be able to overlook his book's layout.From the Publisher:
Behind the gladrags and pink fingernails is an iron discipline, an unstoppable drive--and a mind that is a rollercoaster ride of shocks and spills. So listen up as the off-center sage shares his unconventional wisdom on everything from one-night-stands to playing in the NBA. In Walk on the Wild Side, Dennis Rodman shows he's a philosopher at his core with his own little instruction book for living a successful life to the hilt--a full-court press of all new, wild, raw, and right-on wisdom that holds the secrets to Rodman's record-breaking rebounding and free throws at life.
You haven't read anything until you've read Rodman onLife as a 90s Love Child, The Evils of Marriage, Legalizing Pot, Romping Through the NBA Finals, The O.J. Trial, and Bill Clinton's Sex Life.It's vintage Rodman, 100-proof and unexpurgated, filled with graphic, all-new personal anecdotes and autobiographical information--a must-have for anyone tired of the same old platitudes and eager for a prescription for a fabulous, in-your-face life.
