About My Personal Best : Life Lessons From An

Product Description NATIONAL BESTSELLER For John Wooden's millions of fans--a heartfelt and revealing self-portrait about the people and events that shaped his life Sports Illustrated declared: "There has never been a finer coach in American sports than John Wooden. Nor a finer man." ESPN selected him as the "Greatest Coach of the 20th Century." From his birth on an Indiana tenant farm, to All-American honors at Purdue, to his historic record-setting UCLA dynasty, John Wooden is a towering figure in 20th-century sports, and his experience and wisdom an American treasure. In My Personal Best, Coach Wooden tells how he did it and the lessons he learned on his remarkable journey. Pairing never-before-seen photos from Coach Wooden's private collection with his personal stories and affirmations, this book encompasses the dramatic arc of Wooden's larger-than-life achievements and experiences. As he did in his perpetual bestseller Wooden, Coach offers a wealth of biographical details, personal reflections, and a lifetime of lessons. His millions of fans will cherish this definitive pictorial history of a living sports legend. "John Wooden is a living legend because he practiced what he preached--the code of ethics which created America's strength."--Phil Jackson, head coach, Los Angeles Lakers "Most of what I know, what's made me a smart man, has come from John Wooden."--Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer "A man of John Wooden's accomplishments and integrity would stand out in any era, but now, almost three decades after he coached his last game, he is in some ways an even more striking figure."--Bob Costas From Booklist John Wooden, whose UCLA Bruins won 10 NCAA titles in 12 years, is the greatest college basketball coach of all time. Wooden has lived his life with quiet dignity and integrity. The "life lessons" he presents here are less about basketball than about incorporating some of that dignity and integrity into one's own life. Certainly basketball fans will find a trove of wonderful anecdotes in these pages; after all, teaching the game was Wooden's life's work, and he illustrates many of his points with examples from his coaching career. Let's face it: there isn't much here that readers haven't heard a thousand times: work hard, be honest, value your family, have faith, and live by the Golden Rule. Still, college basketball fans will treasure the context Wooden brings to the familiar pieties. Wes Lukowsky Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved From the Publisher 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 his final book, The Wisdom of Wooden: My Century On and Off the Court.

Throughout My Personal Best, Coach Wooden introduces us to the men and women who shaped him and the many important l
