The book "Dean's List" by Art Chansky was a very good book, definately one of the best that I have ever read. I haven't read very many books in my lifetime but I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in sports or good stories. The book covered very many parts of Dean's life from the way he recruited the first blacks to a major university and his recruitment of the great Michael Jordan. What struck me worst about the book was the segregation of basketball in America. Especially in the South. The biggest lesson I have learned from this book is that basketball is not a sport for just white people. When black people entered the sport, it made it much more exciting and fair so everyone can do it. Dean Smith is most definately one of the best basketball coaches to ever coach on college. Dean won two NCAA Championships in college and coached the likes of Michael Jordan, arguably the best basketball player to ever play the game, Jerry Stackhouse, Antwaun Jamison, Vince Carter, James Worthy, and Sam Perkins. The University of North Carolina named their home court the Dean E. Smith Center after him. If you are a fan of sports or North Carolina basketball, I would recommend this book to you.
