They Call Me Coach by John R. Wooden

Book Description

The legendary coach talks about his life, his players, and his winning philosophies in this bestselling autobiography John Wooden's dedication and inspiration made him America's "winningest" coach. His beliefs in hard work and preparedness brought the UCLA Bruins an unparalleled 10 NCAA basketball championships. Now in this bestselling autobiography - with a Foreword by Hall-of-Famer Bill Walton - the college basketball legend reflects on his record-breaking career, his life behind the scenes, and how his top players went on to shape and change the NBA. From the everyday basics to important life lessons ("It's not how tall you are, but how tall you play"), Wooden shares his worldly wisdom on and off the court to offer a personal history of an unforgettable time in college basketball, answering the most-asked questions about his life, his career, and the players who made his teams unbeatable.'"They Call Me Coach" is grass-roots Americana, a story bigger than basketball. One of those rare sports books that is must reading for everyone' - "Chicago Tribune". 'What Knute Rockne was to football, Connie Mack to baseball, and Wilbur and Orville Wright to flying, John Wooden is to basketball. This book captures the full flavor of the man, the philosophies that work in life, and the philosophies that work on the court. I commend it to people who want to succeed at either - or both' - "Los Angeles Times".
