By Coach John Wooden with Steve Jamison. Hardback.
A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court.
Evoking days gone by when coaches were respected as much for their off-court performances as for their success on the court, this unique and intimate work presents the timeless wisdom of legendary coach John Wooden. In honest and telling passages about virtually every aspect of life, Wooden shares his personal philosophy on family, achievement, success, and excellence.
Raised on a small farm in south-central Indiana, Wooden learned a great deal from his parents – lessons that stayed with him not only throughout his unparalleled career at UCLA, but also as dedicated husband, father, and teacher. These lessons, along with personal letters from Bill Walton, Denny Crum, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bob Costs, among others, mark Wooden as an inspirational classic that readers will cherish for generations to come.
