Born Ready: The Mixed Legacy of Len Bias
The book chronicles the rich and complex legacy of Bias, one of the best college basketball players ever. Bias died of a cocaine overdose two days after the Boston Celtics made him the number two pick in the 1986 NBA draft.
The author, Dave Ungrady, will autograph the book with a personal message.
From Kirkus Reviews: (Ungrady's) dogged research, including his conducting new interviews and mining previously produced materials, has yielded a well-rounded portrait of Bias and those who are trying to make sense of his death. A cautionary sports tale that shows how one life unexpectedly ended can affect so many others.
