I've read nearly all of the books written on Coach. Kareem tells stories I've never heard before. This is a special tale about two people's lives that intersected for decades, each having a profound effect on the other.
If you are looking for a book on how to coach basketball, this isn't your book. If you are looking for a book on how to coach and mold youth to be better people and adults, then this is your book.
