Even if you thought you knew everything about basketball legend Larry Bird, this book is full of surprises.

Bird offers striking revelations about his health problems and how they shaped the man and his game. He shows how the things he learned as a player formed his thinking as a coach.

It was so much fun, as a coach and a basketball fan to hear the great Larry Bird talk about his experience. It's not a groundbreaking book but it is a personal take on what it was for him to be a player and a coach. A really humble and down to earth guys this Larry Bird is.
