Business & Finance • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

A basketball icon becomes an entrepreneur and community activist in this touching account of how a celebrity can make money and impact people’s lives. Cut from his endorsement contracts when he contracted HIV in 1991, Johnson still had enough basketball money to build Starbucks and movie theaters in underserved urban communities. He humbled himself along the way, accepting the help of mentors and investors, all of whom recognized the selfless character that comes across in this inspiring lesson for entrepreneurs. Dominic Hoffman was an outstanding choice to deliver a lesson/memoir from a humbled jock star. He’s relaxed, serious, and mostly natural sounding, a style that fits well with Magic Johnson’s quiet determination to become a success outside of basketball AND do some good in the world.
