Description

With fresh (and sober) eyes, Dwight Gooden, who tallied a mountain of strikeouts while leading the 1986 bad-boy New York Mets to a World Series win, shares the most intimate moments of his successes and failures, from endless self-destructive drug binges to three World Series rings.




About the Author
At age nineteen, Dwight Eugene Gooden was baseball's pitching phenom, thrilling New Yorkers and fans everywhere. Nicknamed ?Doc? for his surgical, 98-mph fastball, he was named Rookie of the Year, became the youngest player ever to appear in an All-Star game, received the Cy Young Award, and guided the 1986 New York Mets to World Series victory ? his first of three World Series rings. After a long battle with drug addiction, Gooden, a dedicated father of seven, is now clean and working with at-risk children and adults.

Ellis Henican is the coauthor of three "New York Times "bestsellers, a columnist for "Newsday, "and a popular television and radio commentator.
