About the Author

JOHN WOODEN was a high school and college coach for 40 years. During that time, his teams won more than 80 percent of their games. From 1948 to 1975, his UCLA Bruins teams claimed 10 NCAA national championships, including seven in a row, and at one time won 88 consecutive games. Wooden is in the Basketball Hall of Fame, both as a player and a coach. He originated the Pyramid of Success and was the coauthor with Jay Carty of the bestseller Coach Wooden One-on-One. Coach and his wife, Nellie, were married 53 years when she passed away in 1985. Coach lived to be 99 years of age, passing away on June 4, 2010.
 
JAY CARTY has played for the Los Angeles Lakers, coached basketball at his alma mater, Oregon State, and been a part of John Wooden’s UCLA coaching staff. After hanging up his basketball shoes, Carty entered ministry. For 25 years he has been a traveling preacher and has written seven books, including Counter-attack and Playing with Fire. Jay and his wife, Mary, live in Santa Barbara, California.

An excellent book for helping people make good decisions for leading their personal and business lives. Athletics offers great analogies for comparison to business principles/decisions - and the ethics involved in the very fiber of Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success is of utmost value to everyone.

I hoped to see more practical applications mixed with the truths the Pyramid encompasses. Jay Carty is an amazing communicator who can have you laughing at a situation right before he turns the table to point out the shortcomings. Additional real life scenarios would make it a stronger book.

If you're looking for John Wooden quotes this gives you a limited selection based more on religion than on what worked for him.
This isn't what I was looking for.
Best to good to UCLA for the original.

Based on Biblical principles, these are foundational truths explained by Coach Wooden,that are further expounded upon by commentary from Jay Carty. A publication that'll force you to confront various areas of your life, then take steps to implement neccesary changes for success. Solid Read.

I got this for a friend's birthday. She is the first women I have met on island that could toss out a Wooden quote. So, I got this as a belated birthday gift. Probably great for the coach on the road, it fits in your back pocket.

Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success Playbook: Applying the Pyramid of Success to Your Life has been a great book for my high school girls soccer team to go through together. At the end of every practice, we take 5-10 minutes to discuss one of the blocks of the pyramid. I'm fortunate to coach at a Christian high school-not sure I could pull this off in a public school setting because of the scripture references and emphasis on a Christian lifestyle. Could be a great book for an FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) group to go through.
