Wilt: Larger than Life

By Robert Cherry




     If you want to learn about Wilt Chamberlain and can only pick up one book, this is the book.  The most factual account of his life ever written, and unlike Wilt's autobiographies, this one isn't interested in putting forth a myth.  Much of Wilt's life was indeed larger than life, and the book covers them, and at the same time, the author doesn't cover up Wilt's faults.  He interviews countless people who knew Wilt and covers his life from all of the angles.  You learn about his achievements, his greatness, and his faults.

        Too bad all biographies can't be this good.
