    Wilt

    Wilt was the complete package. As a man, a Son, a Brother, and a Friend. A man of superior intellect, but at the same time waas a common man. This book will give you a view of Wilt only known by those close to him.

    A great look at Wilt

    This is a complete look at Wilt--both on and off the court. One gets a true look at what being near Wilt was like over the years. Excellent read for basketball and non-basketball fans, alike. Family and friends were important to Wilt and he wasn't the loner he was portrayed to be.
