About this title

Synopsis:

"They Call Me Coach is grass-roots Americana, a story bigger than basketball. One of those rare sports books that is must reading for everyone." -- Chicago Tribune "What Knute Rockne was to football, Connie Mack to baseball, and Wilbur and Orville Wright to flying, John Wooden is to basketball. This book captures the full flavor of the man, the philosophies that work in life and the philosophies that work on the court. I commend it to people who want to succeed at either--or both." -- Jim Murray, Los Angeles Times This bestselling, critically acclaimed autobiography of UCLA's legendary coach John Wooden is now expanded, revised and updated. Coach Wooden, for the first time ever, reveals his all-time favorite players, teams, and coaches and tells why television broadcasting is corrupting college athletics. He reflects on his 52-year marriage to Nellie Wooden, his record-breaking coaching career, and how his top players have gone on to shape and change the NBA. In a special question-and-answer section, Coach finally answers the most-asked questions about his life, career, players, and teams. Never-before-seen photos round out this very personal story of life, death, and the courage it takes to endure. Jack Tobin has been writing for more than fifty years. He currently contributes to Sports Illustrated.
