Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned:

"You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned does a great job of intertwining Swen's experiences with the teaching of Coach Wooden on the hardwood, the classroom, and in life. I think the connection between teaching and coaching is right on, as they are both the same. I would recommend this book to teachers, coaches, parents, business executives, and anybody that would want to be more organized and understand how to pay more attention to effort and detail." - Ann Meyers Drysdale, Basketball Hall of Famer and ESPN women's basketball analyst

"This book wows the mind and gives us a new and different perspective on Coach Wooden as a teacher. What this book gives us is a useful and interesting case study of Wooden the teacher. It should be read by anyone who is a teacher, which, as Wooden reminds us, is all of us." -James Stigler & Jim Hiebert, authors of The Teaching Gap

"Whether you're an educator, business entrepreneur, serving in a professional field, community leader, or simply possess a desire to be more effective in organization and leadership, You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned has captured the secrets of Coach John Wooden's strategies. The teaching principles and practices can be converted from the classroom and the basketball court to self-improvement and improved effectiveness." - Roger Dickinson, executive director, Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame

Format: Paperback
Swen Nater knows John Wooden - that much is clear. Clear too, is what a great teacher John Wooden was and, continues to be. This is a book any teacher can learn from. Sure it is great for coaches, but when a teacher is looking for guidance on how to handle varying student potential within their class, is it better to treat everyone the same - or to treat each individual differently, according to their personality, talent, ability, commitment etc. as Wooden did? Swen does a great job of interjecting his own life's experience into the priniciples Wooden taught. And he uses those of "Alcindor", Wicks, Walton, Allen and others to make the stories fit the lesson. This is textbook material, or should be required reading for aspiring or experienced teachers - 5 Stars plus!

Ron Gallimore and Swen Nater combine their incredible knowledge about teaching and basketball to deliver a new and insightful look at the teaching practice of John Wooden. The book is a wonderful balance of personal stories from Nater and insights about teaching and learning from Gallimore that demonstrate just how incredibly wise, intentional, and gifted The Coach was and is. This book demonstrates the hard work, preparation, courage, and commitment to continuous learning that defines quality teaching. A must read for every teacher and coach.

Any coach should take the philosophies of John Wooden to heart, they work! Using his teachings you can win games and the players have a heck of a lot better experience. After a dismal record in only my 2nd season fresh out of college I started researching his work, and applying it - only to have one losing season over the next 7. Started to get away from his teachings recently making my frustration levels go through the roof so bought this book as a refresher, it helped and recommend it to all coaches.

If you've read a lot of Coach Wooden's books, you may be familiar with his wisdom, maxims and his wonderful pyramid of success; this book studies the methodology of his teaching and how he applied his wisdom to the successful transfer of knowledge and skills. If you're a teacher, buy this book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read several books about Coach Wooden and I continue to be impressed by his knowledge and character. He was much more than just a basketball coach - he was a true teacher. This book highlights his teaching techniques that led to his success and that can make those who choose to teach look at and improve their own methods. His methods correlate directly with strategies that will make teachers be successful in their classrooms. As a middle school principal, I thought so much of this book that I bought it for my entire faculty and we will be doing a book study this school year. I know it will help my teachers be more successful in their jobs.

I used this book in my college coaching philosophy class. It was a great book about one of the greatest coaches of all time. It is geared for teachers and give a lot of advice to educators from a sport perspective. My students also liked the book because it has pictures of John Wooden's life and career as well as stories from past players.

Format: Paperback
The first problem with "You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned" is its classification. Does it belong in basketball? After all, it's about the teaching techniques of John Wooden, the greatest coach in college basketball history. Or maybe it goes into a teaching classification, since teaching is essentially the subject. Or, maybe it goes into the general nonfiction group, since anyone who has to teach something to someone else -- and that includes just about everyone in one form or another, including parents and employers -- might be interested

It goes here in basketball. And despite its small size and slight periods of redundancy, there are plenty of good lessons here to make this a worthwhile effort.

Wooden continues to fascinate us, even 31 years after he coached his last basketball game. His ex-players continue to call, write or visit in an effort to pick up wisdom on how to run their lives. A variety of books have been written about Wooden, who hasn't seem to lose any relevance despite advancing into his 90's.

Nater and Gallimore have a good perspective on Wooden's skill as a teacher. Nater was Wooden's greatest project, someone who never started a single game at UCLA but who was an eventual rookie of the year in the pros. Nater turned into a good pro center, quite a turnaround for someone who apparently was merely tall when he finished high school. Gallimore sat in on UCLA's practices during the 1974-75 season and took notes for a research project. The book becomes something of a merger between Nater's practical experiences and Gallimore's more theoretical angle (such as classifying Wooden's comments into a variety of categories -- positive, informational, etc.)

The chapters are broken into eight lessons from Wooden.
