Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Pat Summitt, the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history and bestselling author of "Reach for the Summitt" and "Raise The Roof," tells for the first time her remarkable story of victory and resilience as well as facing down her greatest challenge: early-onset Alzheimer's disease.
Pat Summitt was only 21 when she became head coach of the Tennessee Vols women's basketball team. For 38 years, she has broken records, winning more games than any NCAA team in basketball history. She has coached an undefeated season, co-captained the first women's Olympic team, was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, and has been named "Sports Illustrated" 'Sportswoman of the Year'.
She owes her coaching success to her personal struggles and triumphs. She learned to be tough from her strict, demanding father. Motherhood taught her to balance that rigidity with communication and kindness. She is a role model for the many women she's coached; 74 of her players have become coaches.
Pat's life took a shocking turn in 2011, when she was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease, an irreversible brain condition that affects 5 million Americans. Despite her devastating diagnosis, she led the Vols to win their sixteenth SEC championship in March 2012. Pat continues to be a fighter, facing this new challenge the way she's faced every other--with hard work, perseverance, and a sense of humor.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by great book great book and personal story. A must read for Women's basketball fans.A must read for a truly remarkable person. 03/17/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Read four chapters immediately! Thought I'd just glance through book quickly and before I knew it read first four chapters.This story shows how very hard work and discipline can really pay off and turn someone (or a family) without much into one with tremendous success. Ladies basketball has come a long way since this pioneer started in the college sport, and most of that is a direct result of Pat Head Summitt's dedication and work for women's college basketball. 04/08/2013
