Here is Magic's game the way Magic plays it, available for the first time in trade paperback. The NBA superstar shows us all the right moves--passing, shooting, defense, dribbling, and... This description may be from another edition of this product.
I thought this was a truly inspirational book. Magic really describes his love for the game and his relationships with other NBA legends Isiah Thomas, Larry Bird, etc. This book speaks of basketball drills and how to become a good basketball player. He is trying to teach the reader how to play basketball through this book. This is only a biography because Magic is talking about his NBA career somewhat, but most of the book is trying to instruct you on how to become a basketball player. Sure he talks about some of his life, but then it all comes back to "Do this drill," "Condition yourself," and other things a coach would say. I myself enjoyed this book because I am a basketball player myself, and I thought I could truly learn a thing or two from this book. Some of the drills I even tried on my own and felt I benefited from them, so I would highly recommend this book to basketball players if you would like to sharpen your skills in basketball. To recommend this to other people other then basketball players, I would not recommend it. I would recommend reading Magic's other book "My Life" if you want to truly learn about him, and his home life, childhood, etc. "My Life" is a true biography of Magic Johnson, unlike the teaching "Magic's Touch" tries to send out to readers.
