: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court
by John R. Wooden, et al.
Coach Wooden's remarkable 10 national basketball championships in 12
years at UCLA speak for themselves. In Wooden, the coach--quiet, thoughtful,
and introspective throughout his distinguished career--finally speaks forhimself,
and he's well worth hearing. Wooden is a modern chapbook of inspiration
and good sense that reveals the hard-court philosopher behind it as a man
of character, conviction, decency, and straightforwardness. There are no
complex ideas, just little beams of light filtered through anecdotes that
project the kinds of simple, immutable truths that in the end touch nothing
but net. Amazon.com

Call Me Coach
by Jack Tobin
Book Description "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.
