Even today, 33 years after retiring from coaching basketball at UCLA, John Wooden remains America's coach. JOHN WOODEN: AN AMERICAN TREASURE is the definitive book on his extraordinary life, from his early years as a small-town legend from Martinsville, Indiana, and an All-American guard at Purdue to his legendary years at UCLA and the fruitful years following his retirement. In the year of the 44th anniversary from his first national championship at UCLA, and more than 35 years after his autobiography, JOHN WOODEN: AN AMERICAN TREASURE reveals why this kind, endearing, and unbelievably intelligent coaching legend, even at age 98, remains one of the more fascinating, extraordinary, yet humble men of this, or any, generation. Ultimately he has become America's Teacher as much as its most celebrated coach.
Vince Dooley the player, the coach, the administrator, the legend is finally ready to tell his story. Georgia's prodigal son got his start on the rough end of Mobile, Alabama, where he used football as a springboard to an incredible life. After four decades, 201 wins, six SEC championships, and one national title, Dooley is ready to hang up his stirrups. In Vince Dooley: My 40 Years at Georgia, Dooley talks candidly to give the complete inside story of his extraordinary life and career."
