West by West Jonathan Coleman & Jerry West read online review & book description:

He is one of basketball's towering figures: "Mr. Clutch," who mesmerized his opponents and fans. The coach who began the Lakers' resurgence in the 1970s. The general manager who helped bring "Showtime" to Los Angeles, creating a championship-winning force that continues to this day.

Now, for the first time, the legendary Jerry West tells his story-from his tough childhood in West Virginia, to his unbelievable college success at West Virginia University, his 40-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, and his relationships with NBA legends like Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kobe Bryant. Unsparing in its self-assessment and honesty, West by West is far more than a sports memoir: it is a profound confession and a magnificent inspiration.

    Please read. Its very necessary for someone who doesn't think they accomplished enough. To think one of the greatest players had so many demons. Enough said.
  • Pretty good.

    The book has a distinct style to it and it takes a while to get used to. But as the chapters progress and you become familiar with Mr. West's personality, it becomes a very intimate and heartfelt tale of a complicated and extraordinary existence. I would recommend it.

    I have never written a review before, but am so disappointed with this book I feel compelled to write this. If I can describe the book in one word, it would be schizophrenic. There is just no story development, and he spends much of the book whining about being mistreated by his father.

    Great story! Thank you Jerry, for reminding us it's ok to be human. You made a 52 yr old man and long time fan cry. I want to live!
