Book #Giveaway: West by West by Jerry West {3 Winners}

Thursday, October 20, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Today, I have a special treat for book lovers and fans of basketball alike. Jerry West's memoir, West by West: My Charmed, Tormented Life, was released this week by Little, Brown and Company.

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.

The Giveaway
Thanks to Hachette Book Group, I am hosting a giveaway for three (3) copies of West by West!

    I just finished a book called "East Lynne." It's a classic and a bit long, but it was GREAT.
