Beloved, respected, and admired for his work on and off the basketball court, coach John Wooden remains a source of fascination and inspiration even after his passing in 2010 at age 99. Wooden led the UCLA Bruins to 10 NCAA championships in 12 years--a record that will likely never be equaled--but his teachings and his impact reached far beyond basketball.

As a legacy to the man who meant so much to so many, UCLA commissioned this incomparable tribute, with over 300 exclusive images from the university's archives, photographs of Wooden's belongings (donated to the university by his family), and contributions from Wooden's players and proteges. This singular retrospective begins in 1948 when Wooden arrived on the UCLA campus and spans the championship era and Coach's golden years as it chronicles his remarkable life and times.

This Deluxe, Limited Collector's Edition of the book, housed in an elegant Bruins-blue cloth-covered clamshell case, suitable for display, includes: Special limited edition of the coffee-table book, clothbound and emblazoned with foil stamp of Wooden's signature.- Limited edition bonus book, clothbound, with images not in the coffee-table book- Clothbound portfolio with contact sheet and art prints suitable for framing- Replica documents including Wooden's hand-typed 17-point "Practice Plan" that every player dutifully followed, and Coach's 20 suggestions for achieving success in life--10 "do's" and 10 "don'ts"- Replica ticket from 1975 NCAA title game, Wooden's final game and record 10th championship- An actual seat number taken from the stands prior to the renovation of Pauley Pavilion


Praise for "Wooden: Basketball & Beyond: "

"Many have called Coach Wooden the gold standard of coaches. I believe he was the gold standard of people and carried himself with uncommon grace, dignity, and humility. This book is a fitting tribute." --"Mike Krzyzewski, Duke University basketball coach" "John Wooden was an American treasure. A teacher, a philosopher, a leader--his principles are as timeless as the man himself. This one-of-a-kind keepsake honors his legacy." "--Jim Nantz, CBS Sports"
