A historic self-portrait of an American legend, Julius “The Doctor” Erving’s DR J.—told in his own voice with startling honesty and written with acclaimed novelist and journalist Karl Taro Greenfeld.

“I am, of course, an athlete, a former basketball player, and while my achievements in that arena are my best known, they are only the mythic part of my story. I want to be candid about my life. I want to recall with you everything that I have seen and done, and try to make sense of this ongoing journey. While it has not always been easy, it has been exciting, and I believe, emblematic of our time.”

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.

Editorial Reviews

“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
