The famous UCLA basketball coach talks about his players, his own phenomenal career, and the mental and spiritual attitudes which bring success
The book is a little lighter than I was hoping on discussing his philosophies and approaches and longer on showing them through the example of his life. The book takes the reader from his youth in Indiana through the late 1980's, and covers the great UCLA teams in some detail.
Anyone interested in the life of a great leader and teacher should read the book - if only for background and understanding how he lived his life. A good read.
One can surmise that much of what carried him to fame at UCLA was already picked up in his early days in life, as student, son, player and then coach in high school.
His faith in the Lord and reading Bible daily was inspirational as well.
Lessons taught by him to his players were not just about b-ball, but about life. The foreward by Bill Walton exudes this, and one can see how easy it was for his players to play for him.
Great read to be re-read. Youngsters should read this.
