    COACH WOODEN AND ME: OUR 50-YEAR FRIENDSHIP ON AND OFF THE COURT
    by Kareem Abdul-Jabar

    This memoir is a colorful, inspiring and poignant telling of the unique friendship between Kareem and his esteemed UCLA basketball coach, John Wooden. Initially it was built on respect and shared goals but through the years the relationship grew more like that of a father and son as they shared their spiritual lives, their cultural lives and their family values. From his early years as Lew Alcindor to his conversion to the Islam faith when he changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, they were there for each other through the many decades, sharing the joys and hardships of each other’s lives. It’s a powerful testament to their respect, devotion, and love for each other, with basketball as the shared impetus.

    THE FROZEN HOURS: A NOVEL OF THE KOREAN WAR
    by Jeff Shaara

    . This book brilliantly sets the stage for understanding and “experiencing” the Korean conflict. It began in 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea with the goal to unite the country under one Communist rule. The US and the UN responded by bolstering South Korean forces to drive the invaders back to North Korea. However China then entered to support North Korea, and hence the groundwork was set for an enhanced military conflict that resulted in the death of 36,000 American forces. Shaara takes the reader deep into what became known as America’s “Forgotten War,” depicting that military engagement that ended with an armistice in 1953.
