In Copying It Down, Harvey Dorfman recounts his experiences in the world of sports. From his childhood sickbed, Dorfman went on to achieve a myriad of successes, including goalie on a national co-champion soccer team and coach of a high school basketball team that won a state championship, and is a possessor of four World Series Rings (three with Oakland; and one with Florida). He eventually attained a status of world renown in the field of sport psychology. Here, in the second of three volumes, Dorfman shares anecdotes that include the fourteen years spent in the dugouts of three major league teams. The book concludes in 1998, when his professional associations with major league baseball organizations ended.
Harvey Dorfman has worked in education and psychology as a teacher, counselor, coach, and consultant. Dorfman was also a freelance journalist whose work appeared in The New York Times, Boston Globe, Miami Herald, and Los Angeles Times, among others. In 1999, Dorfman became a full-time consultant in sport psychology for the Scott Boras Corporation, an agency that represents professional baseball players.
