Cal Bruton survived an upbringing that would have daunted most, but he survived! At the age of seven his father was stabbed to death, his mother turned to alcohol; and one of his sisters mentally retarded, but he went on to become one of the luminaries of modern Australian basketball. He arrived in Australia in 1979 for the first season of NBL, won a championship with the Brisbane Bullets in 1985 and capped a superb career as a
coach by taking the Perth Wildcats to the title in 1990. Carl Bruton... only a little man, but one of the giants of the game in this country. His life story, with its myriad of highs and lows, makes truly compelling reading. 222 x 140mm., pp. 208, black & white plates, Career Analysis: Calvin T. Bruton.
