KIRKUS REVIEW

The basics of the game outlined with sure precision by two of the most highly respected and successful coaches around--John Wooden (""The Wizard of Westwood"") who masterminds all those championship UCLA teams, and Bill Sharman, the former NBA great who's currently at the helm of the Los Angeles Lakers. The two floor strategists agree that being a basketball winner depends mostly on conditioning, teamwork and a mastery of the fundamentals, with hard work, self-discipline and desire as important secondary factors. In addition to explanations of the various phases of the game, Wooden provides a brief description of his celebrated Pyramid of Success--the inspirational tenets used to guide his actions both on court and off. An unarguably sound primer suitable for youngsters who've never heard of the pick-and-roll play.
