Description

Controversial, confrontational and driven, Geno Auriemma - the long-time head coach of the Univ of Connecticut's highly successful womens' basketball team - is a force to be reckoned with. Now 55, Geno just guided the UConn Huskies to its sixth national championship and its third perfect season. In the 2208/2009 season UConn steamrolled all of its opponents, finishing with an astounding record of 39-0. However, despite all of his success, Auriemma is a driven and haunted man. In this deeply personal memoir, Geno reveals for the first time his innermost thoughts about his aggressive coaching style, his stormy dealings with opposing coaches (most notably Pat Summitt, the famed head coach at Tennessee) and how he demands - and gets - the very best from his long-line of talented basketball players at Connecticut. The book includes up close and personal stories about some of Geno's greats, including Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Nykesha Sales, Rebecca Lobo, Swin Cash and of course, reflections on his current championship team.
