Pete contributed some of his theories of basketball, and his approach to the game. It's a must read for all Old Blues, and anyone else who is interested in the development of today's game.
So much history is covered, I liked reading the comments of other players, coaches, Pete's players. I have been a Wooden fan, but this book makes me appreciate so much more about Pete. I also liked reading the stories, the practical jokes, and just the background. Seeing how things were done 40-50 years ago, the players/athletes Pete influenced, his connections with people like Pete Rozelle, Joe Kapp, Bobby Knight, Jerry West, Cap Lavin, etc.
The title of the book is quite appropriate for such a great coach. I think the only thing I was looking for was the relationships he shares with his sons, especially after he retired from coaching.
Good book, a must read for those who love the game!
A Good Man finally sheds light on one of the best teachers of the game.
All you need to know about his knowledge of the game is this - he is the guy that Bob Knight goes to for advice.
