My Life On a Napkin: Pillow Mints, Playground Dreams and Coaching the Runnin' Utes
by Rick Majerus
Majerus tells his own story of how a chubby kid from Sheboygan came to be North Americas best-loved college basketball coach. Filled with wit, candor, insight, and the kind of bold statements that caused Notre Dame to rescind a job offer, My Life on a Napkin delivers what sports fans love most: good talk, good stories, and good game.

Just finished this book about my husband's new boss and I am wondering how much has changed in Coach Majerus' perspective and coaching approach in the 12 years since this magical year at Utah. Would sure love to see a repeat and a sequel from his current SLU years. Great to read about his commitment to his players, family, and friends that goes so much deeper than basketball.
One of my favorite sports biographies of all time. Follows the life of Coach Rick Majerus (one of the few stand-up guys in the sports world today) and his journey to becoming the head coach at Utah. A little outdated these days, but still a great introduction to the world of college athletics.
