    Haven't really read this one, but I've got two autographed copies! Yay, Magic! It was worth standing in the chill, wet air to get a chance to meet a childhood hero.

    I listened to the audio book and it is outstanding! Magic Johnson has truly become a successful business man and I bet the majority of the American population has no idea what a success he is off the basketball court. This is my kind of book and one that I give 5 stars to. Despite the title of 32 Ways...this book is packed with many more than 32 ideas to be successful in business and in life. The stories are powerful and memorable and I will not spoil them for you by recounting them here. If you I listened to the audio book and it is outstanding!

    Loved this book and love Magic. He really pays attention to all, treats others well and gives so much of himself to others. Great to hear how he rolls up his sleeves to do the work himself. Like mopping a spill in one of his Starbucks. He’s not a spoiled star athlete but someone who realized it’s a blessing and is happy to make someone’s day by stopping for a picture or talking to another entrepreneur to hear their ideas.

    Magic Johnson was arguably my childhood idol. Growing up here in LA, he was basketball. I found out about the book cause of a book signing at the century city mall. I missed the signing but got the book. The book is easy to read and lightning fast. Most of the general topics about business and doing what it takes to succeed, are all repetitive, but its interesting to learn about all of Magic's challenges entering the business world. His tips are concise and really to the point. Its really a worth Magic Johnson was arguably my childhood idol. Growing up here in LA, he was basketball.

    I read this book ~4 years ago. I could not STOP talking about this book to my circle of friends after I read it!! I learned much from this book. For me, this book is MORE about personal development & treating people kindly. There was some sage business aspects listed also, but BECAUSE of the aforementioned character trait in this paragraph, that's what made many people respond to Magic's personality & drive.

    This book is about Magic Johnson after his NBA life. He tells the reader how instead of going broke spending all his money after he retired.He decided to networked with other entrepreneurs that had been in the business for a long time and were successful at what they did. He also talks about he troubles going through being diagnosed with an diseased. And over this was a great book for young people that want to become entrepreneurs in life.

    Magic tells how he learned to manage a business successfully by telling of his mistakes and successes. He knew he had lots of fame, some business knowledge, and great contacts. I learned even with this head start, you still can end up at dead ends. Not a great book but the right book for those who are wiling to learn from a winner.

    Good read. Very motivational and gives you great background on Magic! Reading this book gave me a new found respect for Magic Johnson the person and businessman. Let's just say you probably know he is building a business empire, BUT YOU HAVE NO IDEA!!! Wow, this guy is as amazing in the world of business and philanthropy as he was on the court.

    Very pleased with this business - success oriented book written in first person. Lessons were short with anecdotes, but may have more to do with author. Definitely will read other books by him in the future.
