Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

Basketball superstar Johnson's straight talk on AIDS gives his autobiography its thrust and power. Born in Lansing, Mich., son of an hardworking auto assembly-line worker and a pious Seventh-Day Adventist, Johnson comes across as a modest, straightforward, upbeat guy in this high-spirited if sanitized self-portrait. Fans will enjoy his replays of key games and seasons, as well as his frank impressions of his former Los Angeles Lakers teammates, coach Pat Riley, the Boston Celtics' Larry Bird and other players. Johnson discusses his on-again, off-again relationship with his wife, Cookie, whom he married just a month before he tested positive for the HIV virus. The strongest sections describe his retirement, his coming to terms with his condition and return to play, his role as an AIDS activist and the birth of his second son earlier this year. An epilogue contains the rousing speech "A Message for Black Teenagers." Coauthor Novak has collaborated on "autobiographies" with Lee Iacocca and Nancy Reagan. Photos. Author tour.

From Library Journal

This is the latest of several books about Johnson, the Los Angeles Laker star who stunned the entire country last year when he revealed that he had tested positive for HIV. Johnson here recounts his life, culminating with his now well-known participation as a member of the "Dream Team" at the Barcelona Olympics. Since this book was written, Johnson has announced that he will rejoin the Lakers for the 1992-93 season. Not the typical ghetto athlete made good, Johnson comes from comfortable--albeit not luxurious--surroundings and did not have to deal with much tragedy until his HIV diagnosis. Of note in this autobiography is a relatively candid (no names) description of Johnson's involvement with women, which may have led to his infection. This is not a "no holds barred" biography, but it will nevertheless be of interest to public and school library patrons. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/92.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Pour les vrais fans 2 juillet 2007
Par tinyfun
Un livre sympa. Johnson nous raconte toute sa vie depuis son enfance à Lansing, Michigan, jusqu'en 1992 après les JO de Barcelone.

Certains passages trainent un peu en longueur, et on aurait aimé le voir rentrer plus en détail dans sa relation avec les femmes.

A lire tout de même.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 May Others Learn From His Story 24 mai 2007
Par R. McRae - Publié sur
For those seeking the limelight, a must read. Be prepared for all the pitfalls that come along with the ride to fame. Inspirational autobiography of dedication and determination. May our young people keep the thought before them, that nothing comes without full commitment. Mr. Johnson has seen the highs and lows of life. There is strength in the testimony of others.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Laid-Back = Long Life 27 mars 2003
Par K. Johnson - Publié sur
An enjoyable quick read that offers a lot of down-to-earth things about Magic's life. Growing up in Michigan, describing what school, family life, and basketball was like. He also delves into some of his interludes with some of the ladies, and describes the constant attention given to NBA players on the road. He writes of his HIV infection and how he initially dealt with it. For those who've even casually been exposed to Ervin Johnson on the court or via interviews, he's one of the most relaxed and even-keel people we've ever encountered. Magic is appreciative and laid-back. This will allow him to live as long as people who are not infected.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story 30 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
I read this book for a report that I had to do for 9th grade english. I am not a big basketball fan, I only picked the book because it was the only one about a black man on the list. I found the book very intresting, and finished reading it in a matter of days. If you want to read a good comming of age book, this is the one to choose.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE NAME THAT GOT THE GAME 14 juillet 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Magic is unlike any other. Some thing special, filled with twists and turns. It is amazing considering what he went threw. He goes threw the ups and downs sum how he seem to keep his head up. This book tells about the old-school player that helped pave the way for the basketball players of today. Great book for the ages.
