Product description


“Far more than a basketball book . . . the story is classic Southern Appalachian storytelling, reminiscent of the work of Rick Bragg. To satisfy the basketball fans, there’s lots of inside material on stars such as Michael Jordan. . . . Alan Winter narrates with enough of a drawl to make the account realistic but not so much that it makes understanding difficult. His pacing is easygoing and his tone is conversational, a style that makes the book speed along surprisingly quickly.”
       ―AudioFile [Earphones Award Winner]

“Alan Winter’s Southern accent matches the author’s coloquial style. Williams’ rough path makes him even more worthy of coach-worship.”
The Chapel Hill Herald

About the Author

Writer TIM CROTHERS was for many years a Senior Writer at Sports Illustrated before returning home to Chapel Hill to teach in the School of Journalism at UNC, his alma mater. He is the author of The Man Watching, a biography of Anson Dorrance, the legendary coach of the UNC Womens Soccer Team.

ROY WILLIAMS head coach of the University of North Carolina mens basketball team, the Tar Heels, has the highest winning percentage in NCAA history. Over the last seven years, the 58-year-old Asheville, N.C., native―who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007―has won 205 games, including 24 in the NCAA Tournament. Thats more Final Fours, more wins, and more NCAA Tournament victories than any basketball coach in the nation.

ALAN WINTER has performed as an actor regionally and off-Broadway. A former member of Chicago’s Second City touring company, Alan currently resides in New York.
