Bird Watching

by Larry Bird

New York Times Bestseller

Just as he stunned opponents with over-the-shoulder passes, killer steals, and jaw-dropping long-range jumpers on the court, in Bird Watching Larry Bird offers one startling revelation after another as he candidly recounts his rise to becoming one of the most respected NBA coaches in the game today.

Bird reveals what it was like to start a new coaching career, from his first meeting with Pacers president Donnie Walsh to his first look at his new players. But Bird Watching is more than a book about basketball. Recalling his own painful shyness, battles with the press, and the demands of stardom, Bird also talks about the world he never left behind: drinking a beer at JubilÕs bar in French Lick, doing his own yard work, and remembering the lessons he learned from his hardworking mother.
