9780062253781: Dr. J.: The Autobiography

With startling honesty and an unmistakable voice, Dr. J is a historic self-portrait of an American legend, Julius "The Doctor" Erving.

With his flights of improvisation around the basket and his towering afro, Julius Erving became one of the most charismatic (and revolutionary) players basketball has ever known. But while the public has long revered this cultural icon, few have ever known of the double life of Julius Erving. Dr. J traces the inner lives of the nearly perfect player and the imperfect man—and how he has come to terms with both.

Review:

"A deeply personal and almost shockingly honest book."--New York Daily News

"The book is quite an accomplishment: a terrific memoir by a man worthy of one."--Sports Illustrated

"There's enough basketball here to keeps fans interested, but the book isn't really about what happens on the court. It's about a thoughtful man who, for a time in his youth, was a famous athlete. A rewarding reading experience."--Booklist

"The NBA's most transformative player submits an unusually revealing autobiography."--Kirkus Reviews
