Five of the best books on March Madness

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on March Madness:
Wooden: A Coach's Life
by Seth Davis

Modest in his public face, unyieldingly authoritarian in his management of his players, UCLA coach John Wooden's reign over the court in the 1960s and 70s was supreme. His 10 championships -- six of them an unbroken string -- would make him a legend, but Wooden's transformation of the game itself was even more profound. Sports Illustrated writer Davis has already delivered the definitive accounts of the explosion of interest in the NCAA tournament in How March Went Mad. With Wooden, he takes readers back to the roots of modern college basketball itself.
