As for the books, Gary now has five children's books available as well as the hard cover book, "Conversations With Coach Wooden:.." a book that brings delightful stories and surprises to the readers about the great coach and great man John Wooden. Being a contemporary of John Wooden, Gary was also an office mate with him for over seven years.
