Summary
"A brutally honest memoir of talent, addiction, and recovery from one of the greatest baseball pitchers of all time. As a shy nineteen-year-old, Dwight Gooden swept into New York, lifting a team of crazy characters to World Series greatness and giving a beleaguered city a reason to believe. Then he threw it all away. Now, with fresh and sober eyes, the Mets' beloved Dr. K shares the intimate details of his life and career, revealing all the extraordinary highs and lows."--Amazon.com
Summary
One of the bad boys of the 1986 World Series-winning Mets discusses his life, from his Atlanta childhood with his alcoholic womanizing father, through his baseball career, self-destructive drug binges, and experience on "Celebrity Rehab."
