Sum It Up

This is the title of the latest book I read and I couldn’t put it down. Of course, Pat Summitt is truly one of my idols (and I don’t have many). Just in case you don’t know who this is, Pat Summitt has been the head coach of the women’s basketball team at the University of Tennessee for many years. She has won the most NCAA basketball games of any coach, male or female. Her team has won eight National Championships and has participated numerous times in the tournament. But this book isn’t just about basketball. In 2011, Pat Summitt was diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. In about one year after her diagnosis she chose to resign from her head coaching position. This book is about Pat, her early years, a basketball player who by the way went to two Olympic games and coached an Olympic team, a mother, and a coach. Most importantly, Pat’s story of how Alzheimer’s has effected her life. A must read.
