By Seth Davis. Hardback
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 new heights brought new burdens and frustrations. The portrait that emerges from Davis’s remarkable biography is of a man in full, whose life story still resonates today.
