  • "The inspiring true story of NCAA champion women's basketball coach Tara VanDerveer and the unbeatable team she led all the way to Olympic glory. Never mind Michael, Shaq and the rest, the U.S. Women's Basketball Team was the real "Dream Team" at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. After a remarkable undefeated season, Sheryl Swoopes, Lisa Leslie, Rebecca Lobo and their teammates brought home Olympic gold under the unparalleled leadership of three-time National Coach of the Year, Tara VanDerveer. Shooting from Outside is Tara's riveting, behind-the-scenes chronicle of the excitement, drama and triumph of that unforgettable year, as well as an inspiring account of her own career: her battle against sexual discrimination in a male-dominated field, and her ultimate ascendance to the very top of her profession. This book is the riveting true-life story of the molding of a women's team that made sports history, and an intimate portrait of an indomitable leader who turned an impossible ambition into a reality."
