Reviews - What do our customers think?
This Coach Wooden Primer is the Real McKoy  May 6, 2006
I was introduced to this amazing book when Pat Williams talked about Coach Wooden at the end of a day long product seminar for Merrill Lynch Financial Advisors. If you ever have a chance to see Pat, he is one of the most intelligent, to-the-point and engaging motivational speakers I've ever seen. My only criticism of his inspiring book is the title: it would have been much simpler to call it "The Coach Wooden Catechism."

For Pat Williams fans, this is one of seven books in his "How To Be Like" series, which profile the virtuous characteristics of winners. A scholar and a gentleman, Coach Wooden himself got it right when he humbly stated, "I'm just an English teacher. Shouldn't I be writing a book about Pat Williams?"

Each chapter expands on the virtues that made Wooden the greatest basketball coach of the 20th Century. So, `if you want to be like Coach Wooden,' be a person of character, love God, love your family and other people. If you want to build knowledge and wisdom like Coach did, strive to be a teacher, learn from the good example of others, and read good books, lots of them. If you want to build winner teams like Coach, work hard to be a team player, be a leader, be disciplined and patient. If you want to be happy in life, strive for humility, master the `little things', keep things simple, be honest with yourself, and remember that in life, we reap what we sow.

Interspersed under each of these chapters are the testimonials of hundreds of sports legends offering their personal observations of the greatness Coach Wooden exemplifies. Where Williams and his co-author David Wimbish deserve great credit is the skill they demonstrate in weaving together these accolades and facts. Williams spoke to over 800 people to prepare this book. In spite of mountain of source material he accumulated, this book is a quick and impressive read. There are dozens of books about Coach Wooden, and many of them are excellent. As the parent of four basketball crazy boys, I strongly recommend this inspiring book for young adults and athletes in any sport.
