A provocative and revelatory new biography of the legendary UCLA coach John Wooden, by one of America?s top college basketball writers

No college basketball coach has ever dominated the sport like John Wooden. His UCLA teams reached unprecedented heights in the 1960s and ?70s, capped by a run of ten NCAA championships in twelve seasons and an eighty-eight-game winning streak, records that stand to this day. Wooden also became a renowned motivational speaker and writer, revered for his ?Pyramid of Success.?

Seth Davis of Sports Illustrated and CBS Sports has written the definitive biography of Wooden, an unflinching portrait that draws on archival research and more than two hundred interviews with players, opponents, coaches, and even Wooden himself. Davis shows how hard Wooden strove for success, from his All-American playing days at Purdue through his early years as a high-school and college coach to the glory days at UCLA, only to discover that reaching the pinnacle brought new burdens and frustrations. Davis also reveals that despite his squeaky clean reputation, Wooden sometimes found himself on questionable ground with alumni, referees, assistants, and even some of his players. His was a life not only of lessons taught but also of lessons learned.

Woven into the story as well are the players who powered Wooden?s championship teams?Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Walt Hazzard, and others?many of whom speak frankly about their coach. The portrait that emerges from Davis?s remarkable biography is of a man in full, whose life story still resonates today.
