From the back cover... Author Lewis D'Antoni, ninety-six years old, is a legendary figure in West Virginia sports history. Patriarch of a talented basketball family, his sons Mike and Danny are head coach and assistant coach of the New York Knicks. Inducted into the West Virginia Hall of Fame in 2004, Lewis played football, basketball, and basefall and later became a West Virginia high school basketball coach. Still active in the sports arena, he shot a hole-in-one at the age of ninety at a local golf course. The book "The Coach's Coach" is a delightful and motivational story about an immigrant Italian family who overcame many challenges and made America their home. He writes about the changes in sports over a century of time, his fast break style of basketball that set scoring records in the 1950's, and the role and importance of family values. The book is a must read for anyone who realizes that a successful life requires perseverance and the will to win.
