KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Pat Summitt, one of Knoxville's favorite sports icons, is making a special appearance Tuesday on Good Morning America.

Summitt is promoting her new book "Sum it Up."

From NCAA championships to the obstacles she's had to overcome in her personal life, the book takes an inside look at  Summitt's personal and professional life.

Sally Jenkins, a sports writer with Washington Post, co-authored the book with Summitt.

Jenkins says Summit talks about several Lady Vols players in her book.

"Her relationship with the players is what's so fascinating to me. Those were the best chapters to write from a drama standpoint," she explained.

Summitt will do a book signing Tuesday evening at 4 p.m. at Barnes and Noble, 8029 Kingston Pike.
