Pete Maravich: The Authorized Biography of Pistol Pete Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The youngest person to be voted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, Pistol Pete Maravich is recognized by the NBA as one of the all-time top 50 basketball players. More than 30 years after he left Louisiana State University, his NCAA scoring record still stands. He enjoyed fame, wealth, and short of winning an NBA championship, achieved every possible success. But there was a price. Pete brought a childlike exuberance to the court that often masked a tortured and confused adult. Things changed dramatically and permanently, however, when Pete found Christ. At last he experienced peace and a purpose that extended beyond the basketball court. He became an avid student of the Bible and a tireless evangelist. Tragically, at age 40, Pete Maravich died. This is the first authorized biography.

Synopsis:

Pistol Pete Maravich is recognized by the NBA as one of the all-time top 50 players. Yet, despite his success, he suffered deep depression and unhappiness. Things changed dramatically when he found Christ and, at last, he experienced peace and purpose that extended beyond the basketball court.
