Overview

In Copying It Down, Harvey Dorfman recounts his experiences in the world of sports. From his childhood sickbed, Dorfman went on to achieve a myriad of successes, including goalie on a national co-champion soccer team and coach of a high school basketball team that won a state championship, and is a possessor of four World Series Rings (three with Oakland; and one with Florida). He eventually attained a status of world renown in the field of sport psychology. Here, in the second of three volumes, Dorfman shares anecdotes that include the fourteen years spent in the dugouts of three major league teams. The book concludes in 1998, when his professional associations with major league baseball organizations ended.
