Dale Brown's Memoirs from LSU Basketball provides an inside look at Coach Brown's 25 years of coaching at Louisiana State University. In taking an LSU basketball program on life support and turning it into a highly competitive program, Brown was thrown into the national spotlight. His opinions on the NCAA and matter-of-fact voice in the media proved to be a way for the coach to earn the respect of his peers. In this book, Brown remembers his trips to the Final Four, the great teams and coaches he battled through the years, the hundreds of talented players he coached, and the recruiting tactics he employed in luring some of the nation's top recruits to the Bayou. He also devotes a chapter to his memories of LSU legend Shaquille O'Neal, who has always been a vocal supporter of Coach Brown.
