Excellent but easy read if you're a sports junkie. This book definitely gives you an idea of who the real Magic Johnson is as far as is drive to be successful. My eyes opened up to the dedication and passion a person must have to be the top of their profession. It also allows a visual of his depression from being diagnosed with the HIV virus, a side I haven't heard Earvin speak about publicly.
I was a bit disappointed in the fact that he didn't provide more details of his partying ways, maybe too dark of a chapter in his families life he wouldn't want the to explore again. Overall I enjoyed this book.
The book is pretty good. I love playing basketball and it totally helps me to understand it even more.
