Synopsis: Profiles the life and career of Georgetown basketball coach John Thompson, tracing his rise from the poverty of the inner city to the heights of the sports world

From School Library Journal: YA-- For a man who values his privacy above all else, this controversial coach is in the newspapers often. He is black, he is a professional, he is a success, he has strong opinions. He is a man you either love or hate, and Shapiro has interviewed over 250 people who feel one way or the other about John Thompson. The result is an evenhanded portrait of a complex personality. This book is more than a biography; it's also a detailed chronicling of an ineffective basketball program that Thompson turned into a great one. Along the way, he gave minority athletes a chance at an education at one of the most prestigious universities in the U. S. Out of the 63 players he has recruited for his teams, 61 have graduated. An informative and enlightening look at an impressive coach and educator.
