West by West: My Charmed, Tormented Life by Jerry West and Jonathan Coleman

by Nathan Luu


West by West was a great read. I learned new things about Jerry West and found out that celebrities like him, did not live the life everyone expected him to live. He went through many hard times but became successful in the end. His flaws on and off the court strongly affected the way he lived.

Jerry West is known for being a very quiet guy but in this book he expresses his feelings and pours out everything that’s been bothering him since he was a kid. If you are a huge basketball fan like I am, I strongly recommend this book as Jerry West is known for his silhouette image on today’s NBA logo.
Highly regarded as one of the greatest all-time basketball players to ever play the game, Jerry West does a great job of guiding you through his harsh life. Jerry West played on the Lakers for his whole career (14 years) winning an NBA Championship, Olympic Gold Medal, and being named fourteen times to the NBA All Star Game. Not only was he a great player but he was also well known for his achievement as an executive being a six time NBA Champion and winning NBA Executive of the Year twice. 

Throughout this book Jerry West takes you on his life’s journey and describes all the challenges that he went through. This book is perfect for anyone who loves the game of basketball and enjoys reading about one of the NBA’s all-time greats.
