    Story
    (17)

    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.

    What disappointed you about West by West?

    About as poorly written book as one could write. This book is disturbing for one who loved basketball in the 60's. Jerry, get help before you take your own life. It didn't help that his son Ryan was the narrator. His performance was as bad as the writing of the book.

    I finished listening to this recording only because of the characters that surrounded Jerry during his career. Russell, Baylor, Cousy, Robertson, Barry etc...

    Painful...


    Has West by West turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely not


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was dismal. The context of the book didn't help.


    What character would you cut from West by West?

    N/A
