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.
Classy book by a classy player
Dr. J has always and will always be my favorite basketball player. Many parts of this book brought me back to my youth when I used to watch in awe and was devastated with every playoff loss. I was elated when "we" finally won. No one deserved it more the Julius. A very good read.
Great book. Very descriptive. And I'm tied to it!
I had a hard time putting this book down. It starts off very slow with a very child- like writing style........ I continued to read and the writing style evolved as his life evolved (whew). Very interesting and a great read.
