Wilt: Larger Than Life
Long before Kobe, or Shaq, or MJ, or Magic, or Bird, or Kareem, there was Wilt; arguably the greatest basketball player of all time. Authoritative, informative, and entertaining, this book is the first standard biography about this American legend, the unique and unforgettable Wilt Chamberlain. One of the 20th century's greatest and most controversial athletes, Wilt also had an intensely private side that the author uncovers through years of interviews with the people closest to Wilt up until the time of his death in 1999. This groundbreaking work successfully captures Wilt Chamberlain the man, while also closely examining the better known myths that surrounded him throughout his life.
