“Changing the Game” is a remarkable story, and for several reasons. It was written by Dr. George Selleck. The book describes his very interesting life and he tells stories about many well-known college and professional athletes with whom he interacted. But the main purpose of the book is to describe the ever-increasing lack of interest in sports and physical activity among the youth, a problem which unfortunately extends into junior high school and high school. Dr. Selleck provides some insightful solution.
Dr. George Selleck, a 5’8″ Jewish kid from Compton who became an All-American point guard at Stanford, went head-to-head with Bill Russell, became friends with John Wooden, worked for Ty Cobb, taught Kobe Bryant, turned down the NBA draft to become a Presbyterian minister and psychotherapist, and dedicated his life to helping kids everywhere rediscover the magic of sports and movement will share the grit and love of the game that propelled his sports career and shaped his life.
