On November 7, 1991, basketball legend Magic Johnson stunned the world with the news that he was HIV-positive. For the millions who tuned in as he shared his news, Magic's revelation became a seminal moment for the nation. Now twenty-five years later, Cookie Johnson shares her story and the emotional journey that started on that day - from life as a pregnant and joyous newlywed to one filled with the fear that her husband would die, she and her baby would, too, be infected with the virus, and their family would be shunned. Believing in Magic is far more than Cookie's account of surviving that trauma; it is the story of her marriage with Earvin and the nearly three decades of loving each other, losing their way, and eventually finding a path they never imagined they'd take.

Not the inspiration story
I got through a few chapters, but could not go on reading after Magic Johnson suddenly showed up with a kid, unannounced. I wanted to puke!! physically i can not force myself to continue listening to this story of abuse and torture. What, your boyfriend suddenly showing up with a son unannounced actually gives her confidence that he will be a good father later down the road? I can not wrap my head around this logic!!

Candid, Real and Enlightening
This is one of the most honest and enlightening books I have read. I applaud Cookie Johnson for sharing her life challenges and learnings. This book will truly benefit others as we all experience life's challenges and learnings.
