News Sentinel television columnist Terry Morrow reports:

KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- Pat Summitt gave me a little insight into her upcoming book, being penned by Washington Post sports writer Sally Jenkins.

Titled "Sum It Up," Summitt said the memoir"will be pretty open," but did not elaborate about what those details will be. Previous reports indicate the book will touch on her diagnosis last year of early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type.

Perhaps it will also include her numerous miscarriages and divorce from Sevier County banker R.B. Summitt.

She grew up a farmer's daughter in Middle Tennessee and said she held her own with her brothers doing the chores around the spread.
