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.
