In this definitive biography of the championship-winning basketball player and head coach of the record-breaking Golden State Warriors, an award-winning sports journalist looks at the man and the facets of his unusual life that have made him a legend.
Steve Kerr has won eight NBA titles-- five as a player and three as a coach-- for three different franchises. He played alongside the best players of a generation, and learned the craft of basketball under four legendary coaches. He was an integral part of two famed NBA dynasties. Born in Beirut to two academics, Kerr split his childhood between California and the Middle East. Howard-Cooper offers insights into the man and what it takes to be-- and make-- a champion. -- adapted from jacket
