From Publishers Weekly

Largely conforming to the standard sports autobiography, former University of North Carolina basketball coach Smith recalls his career and the way it dovetailed with the evolution of college basketball over the second half of this century into a big business and media zoo. The writing is talky and easygoing, punctuated by sly humor: "I liked the '60s, but I liked them a lot better after we won a few ball games." Of meeting Michael Jordan, who played for him at UNC, Smith casually notes: "I know I'm supposed to say he was surrounded by a golden light, but the truth is, he wasn't." The son of schoolteachers, Smith writes sincerely about teaching his young, talented players the "issues" involved in basketball and in life, especially race. In a chapter called "I may Be Wrong But!" Smith reveals some of the personal and political beliefs he so tightly guarded during his career. He articulates his faith in God and his political disagreements with the Christian Coalition (relevant because Smith was long the most popular man in a state that elects Jesse Helms to the Senate) and his discomfort with athletes who appear to believe that God cares who wins a basketball game. Although Smith indulges in some stock homilies and bromides about "life fundamentals," he come off as man with compassion, modesty and honesty, as well as competitive drive.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Strictly for Tar Heel Fans! 1. März 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a year by year by year by year (!) review of Tar Heel basketball with Dean's life prior to Carolina thrown in for good measure.(He actually had one). It makes no effort to be balanced. You see, Dean never made a mistake, had a player who flunked out or got in trouble-ever! Down in Chapel Hill, life goes on and the Heels keep winning. Phooey! I'll take Bobby Knight throwing chairs and tantrums anyday. However, if you're from Carolina or a UNC alum, ignore this review and buy the book right away. You'll never notice the shortcomings. Now, how about a bio of Dean's predecessor and mentor, Frank McGuire.(He first hired Dean as an assistant). That would be a story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must read for any college hoops fan! 11. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
You don't have to be a UNC fan to appreciate this autobiography. All you need to be is appreciative of college hoops and about a coach and school that did things the right way for over 33 years. In the days of boosters, offering anything under the sun, and players leaping from high school or after their freshamn year to the NBA, it is refreshing to read about a coach whose players would do anyhting for their beloved coach and a coach who would still do anything for his former players.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The inside story from the master of the game 6. Januar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For years we've all wondered just how he does it -- from telling freshman Michael Jordan to "knock it down" in the final seconds of the Georgetown game to resting his starters in the final minutes of the '93 national championship. How does he know? This book offers outstanding insight into the man and the game he mastered. If you care at all about college basketball, you must read this book. There will never be another Dean Smith.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Chronological yet disjointed 27. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book cover states "with warmth, humor, and unflinching candor, he gives readers the best seat in the house...." If you are expecting any of that you will be disappointed...there are no warm fuzzies, it is not funny, and maybe not so sincere. This book does provide a wordy chronological history of over 30 years of Tarheel basketball....blah, blah, blah.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Smith shares his thoughts with extreme candor 28. Dezember 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dean Smith shares his thoughts on Carolina basketball and his life with extreme candor, and warmth to all readers. His candor still today can be heard on occassion on the Road to the Final Four where he isn't afraid to point out who he feels is bad and what he feels about college basketball today. If your a fan of basketball this to me is a Must Read!
