Pat Summitt –'Sum It Up': 4 out of 5 stars
Apr. 23, 2013
After almost 1,100 wins, a 100 percent player graduation rate and a spot on the women’s Olympic basketball team, ex-head coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team, Pat Summitt, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. As one of the most powerful women in the world of college sports, she has led an extraordinary and fast-paced life that has been starting to slowly slip away little by little. In her new autobiography “Sum It Up,” Summitt “sums up” her unbelievable life that, in reality, can in no way be summed up.
Summitt describes her life growing up on a farm with three brothers, her early success in her basketball career and her powerful decades as head coach. She has had more wins than any man or woman in NCAA Division I history. Her autobiography is truly inspiring, showing that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible.
