I thought it was kind of sad.
His father, Bud Wilkinson, was a coach at the University of Oklahoma and still holds the record for orchestrating a winning streak of 31, and then 47 straight games in a row- a National Collegiate Athletic Association record that still stands today. In addition he won 14 conference titles, 3 national championships.
The book is meant to share not only a more caring side to the coach, but also to the interpersonal relationship between a father and son. In the letters, you understand that his father was striving to share his perspective and wisdom. For instance that your keys to healthy living are rest, diet, and exercise and to feed the body with fish, protein, and fresh vegetables.
These letters allow the reader to experience an intimate peek inside one man's thoughts and reflections as he struggles with his own challenges while attempting to strengthen the bonds with his son.
Dear Jay, Love Dad: Bud Wilkinson's Letters to his Son by Jay Wilkinson is a remarkably candid story of how the more things change, the more they stay the same. It will sure give you perspective on what really matters in life. As Bud quotes Lincoln, "People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
This is a collection of letters written by Bud Wilkinson, Iconic coach of the Sooners, to his son Jay at various junctions of his life. Collected and edited by Jay Wilkinson, this is a heartwarming, yet very informative, collection that is a great example for all dads.
When Bill Cosby says this is a must read for dads, believe it. Amazon was the only place I could find this read!

A peek behind the "curtain" to see that a great leader was also an amazing father. A very inspirational read.Published 22 months ago by Joseph D Harker
I thought this was a wonderful book. It showed how important a fathers encouragement is to his son even after that son is grown and has left home. Very heart warming.Published on April 2, 2013 by Linda
I got this book on my kindle for my Mom and boyfriend to read. I think you have to be more into sports than I am to get into it but not a bad read.Published on March 8, 2013 by Jessica Stoops
