Books

Never Lose
by Dr. John Kline
1st Edition

(an autobiography written in chronological order)
With every great achievement, comes great responsibilities. “Never Lose – The ‘Jumpin’ Johnny Kline Story” outlines, and then ceremoniously takes you into the life, glory and personal tragedy of Kline’s experience as one of basketball’s greatest stars, playing with the Harlem Globetrotters. “Never Lose” is not just a story about the Harlem Globetrotters, ‘Jumpin’ Johnny Kline, or drugs and crime. It is a story about facing challenges, overcoming obstacles and rising to victory!

Never Lose
by Dr. John Kline
2nd Edition

(an autobiography written in the form of flashbacks) Never Lose refers not only to the Globetrotter’s credo, that in fact they never lost, but to ‘Jumpin’ Johnny Kline’s own positive attitude that allowed him to win every challenge he faced. Dr. John Kline, Ph.D. was brought down by drugs and crime for nine years, and then rose like a ‘phoenix from the ashes.’ Dr. Kline is a model for every young man, every parent. Every person will understand and appreciate his story. This is a compelling indictment on the need for drug reform in society, in a move to head off the waste of this nation’s resources of young men and women.

 Black Pawns in the Cold War
by Dr. John Kline

Black athletes, Black entertainers and uranium in Africa played a major role during the Cold War in the Fifties. New documents that have come to Dr. Kline’s attention paint a much clearer picture of international politics that decided many of the actions taken during this period. He played with the Harlem Globetrotters from 1953 through 1959 and was one of the pawns in these activities. This is Dr. Kline’s understanding after reviewing documents on The Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement and his personal involvement during the 1950s. He believes that Black Professional basketball players and Black entertainers were used in a strategic plan by the U.S. to counter positions taken by the Soviet Union in its spread of communism during the Cold War.
