Editorial Reviews

Review

"This latest masterpiece by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is even better than all the rest... I'm captivated, enthralled, educated, and entertained as The King's words roll off the page even smoother than his skyhook did off his fingertips."―Bill Walton

"A pleasant expression of deep appreciation for a man who changed the author's life by enriching it."―Kirkus

"Anyone inclined to dismiss John Wooden and Abdul-Jabbar's relationship as merely coach and player... will rethink that miscalculation after reading this compact, engaging memoir."―Publisher's Weekly

"Abdul-Jabbar and Wooden shared a priceless friendship, and this sensitive, sharply written account brings it to full, vivid life."―Booklist (starred review)

"I always knew my Daddy felt this way about Kareem, but I never knew Kareem ever felt this way about my Dad."―Nan Wooden, Coach Wooden's Daughter

"This stunning eulogy will appeal to readers far beyond the confines of sports. Highly recommended."―Library Journal --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
