About the Book

Dr. J: The Autobiography

by Julius Erving and Karl Taro Greenfield

With startling honesty and an unmistakable voice, DR. J is a historic self-portrait of an American legend, Julius "The Doctor" Erving.

With his flights of improvisation around the basket and his towering afro, Julius Erving became one of the most charismatic (and revolutionary) players basketball has ever known. But while the public has long revered this cultural icon, few have ever known of the double life of Julius Erving. DR. J traces the inner lives of the nearly perfect player and the imperfect man --- and how he has come to terms with both.
