From the Back Cover:

Take a one-on-one leadership course with Coach John Wooden himself!

“John Wooden is a monumental figure in American sports, yet his legacy of leadership transcends athletics and spans generations. Coach Wooden instills in others a sense of pride, a commitment to ethics and a respect for teamwork. These fundamental principles translate readily from the sports arena to business, management, and leadership.

"Although John Wooden gained fame at UCLA as an illustrious basketball coach, his leadership values and professional and personal behavior are just as applicable in business. Team-building in any context―especially in today’s hyper-competitive and fast-changing environment―is difficult. That Coach Wooden was able to achieve such consistent successes at the highest levels over his 40-year career is a tribute to the robustness of his ideas.”
―JUDY D. OLIAN
John E. Anderson Chair in Management and Dean, UCLA Anderson School of Management

About the Author:

John Wooden (1910-2010), guided the UCLA Bruins to ten NCAA basketball championships over a 12-year period, including four perfect seasons and an 88-game winning streak. He was named ESPN’s “Greatest Coach of the 20th Century” and voted “#1 Coach of All Time” by The Sporting News. Sports Illustrated said it best when they said: “There’s never been a finer man in American sports than John Wooden, or a finer coach.” In 2003 John Wooden was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Steve Jamison is America's foremost author and authority on the life and philosophy of John Wooden. Mr. Jamison is a consultant to the UCLA Anderson Scool of Business’ John Wooden Global Leadership Program. He has collaborated with Coach Wooden on an award-winning PBS presentation as well as several books, including the classic book on teaching and mentoring, Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections.
