Cinema has the ability to inspire, influence, and entertain audiences. It is also the art form through which filmmakers explore their interests and employ their talents. This volume covers the lives and careers of five filmmakers whose uncompromising personal vision and professional investment in the art of movie making made them legendary.
"Individual chapters on six stars incorporate player quotes, human-interest anecdotes, career highlights, and personal struggles. George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, John Stockton, and Michael Jordan are refreshingly portrayed as human beings and extraordinary athletes. Black-and-white photos accompany a well-documented and highly readable text."
