Publisher's Summary

Coach Roy Williams, one of the most respected, successful, and dominant basketball coaches in the nation, had an unlikely rise to the Hall of Fame and a career that boasts the highest winning percentage among all active college coaches.Now, for the first time, Williams tells the story of his life that few people know, from his turbulent family life as a child to the North Carolina Tar Heels' National Championship victory in 2009. He speaks candidly of his past, his passions, his inspirations, and the coaching philosphy behind one of college basketball's most successful programs. And he recounts the determination that took him from a small home in the mountains of North Carolina to the very pinacle of coaching success.


What the Critics Say

"His willingness to understand the athlete and get the best out of the athlete is what makes Roy a Hall of Famer." (Michael Jordan)

Worth the listen

This is a good listen and a good motivational story. The narrator is somewhat annoying after a few hours but the book as a whole is worth listening to and will keep your attention.
