From the Publisher:

John Wooden, owner of many unequaled and mostly unapproachable records, coached the legendary UCLA basketball teams to ten national championships between 1963 and 1975. He is without question the best coach in the history of collegiate basketball. His accomplishments on the court alone make him a fascinating person. But Coach Wooden is much more‹a philosopher and creator of the Pyramid of Success, which is a plain-spoken guide to achieving success that is packed with good, honest common sense. The Pyramid of Success is about balance and love--what Wooden says are the two most important ingredients in a person--and how to nurture those attributes in one¹s self and others.

In this authorized Wooden biography, you will find the wisdom of this extraordinary man. Wooden has allowed rare access to members of his family--brothers, children and grandchildren who for the first time take you into his home life--as well as superstar athletes (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Willie Naulls, Walt Hazzard, Gail Goodrich, Sidney Wicks plus many others) and nationally known broadcasters. You will also meet Ann Meyers-Drysdale, one of the greatest female basketball players in history. New to this edition are interviews with H.R. "Bob" Haldeman, (former Chief of Staff to President Richard Nixon) with whom Wooden maintained his friendship, even during his incarceration; Jack Tobin, the co-author of Wooden¹s autobiography, They Call Me Coach; and Andy Hill, a former UCLA player who went on to be a top entertainment executive and who co-authored with Wooden the recent best-seller, Be Quick But Don't Hurry.
