    A GREAT BOOK ABOUT A GREAT BASKETBALL STAR!!!

    Have you ever wondered what its like to be a basketball legend? My Life is about the epic life of Ervin ¿Magic¿ Johnson. You don¿t need to be a Lakers fan to feel the pain he endured when he found out he could have a life threatening disease or the glory that he experienced when he was drafted into the NBA. Throughout his career as a star Magic Johnson discovers that the NBA is not all glamorous. Even the closest of friends can become enemies in a second and the media will blow any story out of proportion. His childhood was in some ways easy, but in some ways difficult too. He lived in a northern non-racist community in Lansing Michigan and didn¿t live in beggary. However he had to deal with events that also didn¿t go in his favor such as not being able to go to the high school he wanted to and having two very close friends die. This book was extremely hard to put down. No matter how tough Magic¿s life became, he never gave up he always seemed to get through it. If I had to rate this book I would give it a 5/5 stars, because it is such a great page-turner with something exciting on every page. He makes an effort to connect to the reader, by putting his and others perspectives into the book to make it more interesting, without stretching the truth. I would recommend this book to any sports fan, even the most hardcore Celtics fan.

    The One and Only: Magic

    From what i had known before i read this is book, was not much and very little. But now i know who he is and what hes like. I loved reading this book. If u know me then u know that i love basketball too. But i loved how he made himself so emotional in this piece. Aslo when he made his press conference and he told the entire world about his HIV and how he had to quit his career as and NBA baskekball player. This book made me relize that i cant take sports or anything for that matter for granted. I fell right in with this book and i felt very good whiile reading this book. i loved this book

    Not bad, but not great

    I was curious about what exactly happened to Magic Johnson when he was diagnosed with HIV. I learned a lot about his struggle after he was diagnosed but I feel like he didn't know a whole lot about AIDS. Most of the information he knew is pretty basic from what we know today. He didn't even know who gave it to him or when he got it. The pacing of the book also changed many times. He spent a whole chapter (in the middle of the book) explaining each teammate he had in great detail. But when it came to his best friends in the league, Larry Bird, Isaiah Thomas, and Michael Jordan, he talked very minimally on their friendships. Magic didn't really show me what was going on, he usually just told me what was going on. But most of the book was interesting and I suggest you read it if you're a Magic fan.

    Magic impresses me.

    Magic Johnson really impresses me in his autobiography. I feel like I can really relate to his life, as I am an athlete and he goes through the challenges of being an athlete. Also, I really enjoyed his explaining of how he felt as he found out he had HIV. I think you should definitely read this book if you are in any way involved with sports.
