Praise for JERRY WEST"A superior account of one of American sports' most compelling, complicated figures...by turns, smart, beautifully reported, well-written and psychologically shrewd....Where this book breaks fascinating new ground is in its exploration of West's tormented perfectionism." -- Los Angeles Times"A thoughtful, serious biography of an athlete both blessed and cursed by talent and a competitive spirit." -- Booklist"Lazenby managed to make sense of this complex man...West's career and life deserved a book like this. It's highly recommended." -- Slam Magazine
