Giant Steps: The Autobiography of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Bantam Books, 1983) is a best-selling book [1] by one of the most dominant big men in the National Basketball Association. Written with former Crawdaddy magazine editor Peter Knobler, it covers most of the high and low points of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's long, illustrious career; his conversion to Islam; his social growth, and his feelings about American racial politics. [2] The title Giant Steps pays tribute to the 1960 album of the same name by jazz legend John Coltrane.
