Would you listen to A Coach's Life again? Why?
No, I think once was enough.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would have expanded on stories about Mr. Smith's personal life.
Which character – as performed by Eric Conger – was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I read this because I am a Tarheel. I knew about Dean Smith's legacy at UNC, and wanted to learn more about his character and personal story. I admit I'm not a die-hard basketball fan. There was a lot of technical talk about basketball players, which I didn't fully understand-- but it was interesting to learn about Michael Jordan and other's player's personal stories with UNC. I enjoyed it well enough to finish-- but for me, there was not enough about his personal life including the practically complete omission of his divorce. Practically no mention of female characters. As a woman, this bothered me a bit.
Would have liked more detail, this was more if a general philosophy of coaching college basketball, not so much a deep dive into who he was and what specific things he did. It is a worthwhile read either way.
