Jerry West is one of the most revered sports icons of all time, but beneath the surface lies a complicated, enigmatic man who now shares his true story with unflinching candor for the first time. Here he recounts his difficult journey from an abusive childhood in West Virginia to his all-American success at West Virginia University and his brilliant forty-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers. He speaks openly about his lifelong battle with depression and low self-esteem, and about his complex relationships with NBA legends Elgin Baylor, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Pat Riley, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kobe Bryant; with Lakers owners Jack Kent Cooke and Jerry Buss; with coach Phil Jackson; and with many more. Unsparing in its self-assessment, West by West is a profound confession and a magnificent inspiration, a book destined to be talked about for years to come.
