This is a tribute volume, "The Official UCLA Retrospective" on its legendary college basketball coach, John Wooden, who never wanted to go to the pros and never thought that success was anything but preparing yourself for the challenges you faced and doing your best at whatever you attempted. Contributions from many players attest to the fact that Wooden never altered his values, and that no one treated young players with more concern or respect. Full of photographs, studded with statistics, this book still makes it clear that Wooden's extraordinary career can never be adequately summed up by the numbers in the wins and losses columns--even the exceptional, almost unbelievable, numbers that are posted there.
