We’ve been working around the clock to make sure everyone knows about Coach Roy Williams’ first book, Hard Work; A Life On and Off the Court, when it goes on sale November 3rd.
For die-hard Carolina fans (like myself), this book is priceless, filled with insider-y, engrossing sports writing. For example, to find out what Coach said during halftime of the Final Four Michigan State game: The Tarheels were down 5 points heading into the half, but after a 15-minute break, they came out with a mission and went on to win 87-71. When you read Coach’s pep talk in Chapter 9, you’ll understand exactly how they pulled off that dramatic reversal.
Coach also talks about how he got his start in coaching; his time working with Coach Dean Smith; his many successful years at Kansas; and the difficult decision to head back to Carolina. This is truly the behind-the-scenes stories that fans dream about!
But more than that, for those of you who may not know that there is a difference between Duke Blue and Carolina Blue, this is an amazing story of an extremely successful coach, and the life lessons, obstacles and, above all, Hard Work that made him who he is today.
We’re excited to be launching the book’s website today–www.roywilliamsbook.com–to coincide with the upcoming publication. Watch the inspiring video trailer, find out where Coach will be appearing to sign copies, learn more about the book, and pre-order your copy!
