This was a compelling read. If you like college basketball, especially compelling.
I could not give it a 5/5 because the structure is slightly "chronologically constrained" and it too heavy on the pure reporting. There was not quite enough depth analysis of this great man's psyche and his realationships with his father and wife (both crucial influences) to sate the appetite. There is still room for a more in-depth biography of this great coach.

A contemporary biography which is very thorough and, I think, objective. A really good look at an iconic figure in American sports history.
