About the Author
Earl Monroe is one of the greatest and most beloved players in basketball history. Inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990 and named to the NBA's 50 Greatest Players list in 1996, Monroe left an indelible stylistic mark on the game of basketball. He lives in New York City.

Quincy Troupe is the author of seventeen books including Miles: The Autobiography of Miles Davis (with jazz legend Miles Davis) and The Pursuit of Happyness (with Chris Gardner), which was a New York Times bestseller for 40 weeks. He lives in New York City.

Senator Bill Bradley is a former politician and retired basketball player who won two championships as a member of the New York Knicks. A two-time Olympic gold medalist, Bradley has his number hanging above the rafters in Madison Square Garden, and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1983. Along with a stellar basketball career, he was a three-term senator for the state of New Jersey.
"I, like hoop fans everywhere, have hoped to get my hands on Earl's life story and now it's finally here as told by the master himself. The Pearl's story is something every basketball fan should read. I know hoop fans everything are smiling."
--Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

"Earl Monroe was an unconventional type of player who came out of the Philly playgrounds. He was great at creating stuff--the spin move, the double pump--and he was deceptively quick. I enjoyed playing against him because he was unpredictable and could challenge you in so many different ways. He definitely could affect the outcome of a game."
--Oscar Robertson

"Earl Monroe was a special basketball player, a true original on and off the court, and a real student of the game. I would have loved to have played with him."
--Patrick Ewing

"Earl the Pearl was simply music on the basketball court. Every time we watched him play on TV, our bodies would shake in accordance with his rhythm. This is a truly wonderful, soulful, funny book. So cool. Just like the Pearl."
--Chuck D, Public Enemy
