“A deeply personal and almost shockingly honest book.” (New York Daily News)
“There’s enough basketball here to keeps fans interested, but the book isn’t really about what happens on the court. It’s about a thoughtful man who, for a time in his youth, was a famous athlete. A rewarding reading experience.” (Booklist)
“The book is quite an accomplishment: a terrific memoir by a man worthy of one.” (Sports Illustrated)
“The NBA’s most transformative player submits an unusually revealing autobiography.” (Kirkus Reviews)

The first third of the film is entertaining of the girls going from rich to poor overnight. Alexa has a lot of good one-liners during these scenes. I rate this first third of the film at 4-stars. The rest of the film is the two girls meeting men and having romance, which was not interesting to me as a guy. I rate this last portion of the film at 2-stars.
The movie promotes sleeping around. Alexa regrets sleeping with a guy that she does not end up marrying, but does not regret not saving herself for her husband; she does not regret the practice of promiscuity. God created sex to not even awaken, much less happen until after the marriage ceremony. Thus, I cannot recommend this film.
There is a funny scene of Alexa smoking marijuana and then coming to the family dinner stoned. The scene is entertaining; however, in real life marijuana is not so harmless. John McEnroe went from the number-one tennis player in the world to number twenty-three after he began smoking marijuana. He also then married heroin addict Tatum O'Neal. Marijuana brings you into close relationships with some bad people, which you would otherwise keep at arms-length. I am not saying Tatum O'Neal is a bad person. She is someone Mr. McEnroe might have otherwise not married or might have delayed marrying until she stopped her drug use; had Mr. McEnroe not also taken such a casual attitude towards drugs at the time. I know of other examples of marijuana smokers getting involved with some truly bad people.
The film then goes into some propaganda of a corporate lawyer helping the poor for free. Yes; there are probably a couple of such lawyers somewhere in the country, but most lawyers, which I have encountered are lying, greedy, crooked, self-serving, fellows; working within a civil-lawyer-cartel, of lawyers and their pals the lawyers in black robes, who deny justice to the poor, self-represented, person, who must go to civil-court without a lawyer.
He had a great professional life and a tough-tragic at I times personal life; he rose up and persevered through humility, honesty and hard work. This book is another class act, as is the Doctor.
