Summary
"If you want to be introduced to the demands and delights of basketball, I am sure this book will satisfy you. If you want a book to speak eloquently about finding and losing a great love, about proud parenthood and passionate competition, rush to get this book. Simply put, it is a wonderful book about the wonder of growing up African American, female, ambitious, and successful. I laughed and cried with this book and was pleased ... You go girl!"--Maya Angelou. "Coach Vivian Stringer is a pillar of strength who always stands tall. I'm inspired by her, both on and off the court, and you will be too."--President Bill Clinton. "What a story! In a way that touches me very personally, I see in Coach Stringer a mother's love--and I know that love is the kind of leadership that can change the world."--Michael Jordan. "Love, honesty, respect, integrity: If you use these ingredients to build strong character--there you have C. Vivian Stringer's story, and so beautifully written."--Bill Cosby
