My Personal Best:
Life Lessons from an
All-American Journey
By John Wooden & Steve Jamison



"A good teacher or coach must not only understand others, but himself or herself as well."
John Wooden

In this captivating book, beloved basketball  (external link) coach John Wooden reveals the educational journey he took throughout his legendary life, from his earliest days on a small Indiana farm to the glory of his historic record-setting UCLA dynasty.
Throughout My Personal Best, Coach Wooden introduces us to the men and women who shaped him and the many important life lessons they taught along the way... This treasure trove of all things Wooden also includes rare, never-before-seen photos from Coach's private collection.

Pairing these priceless photos with evocative personal stories, this modern sports classic encompasses the arc of Wooden's achievements and the spirit of hisAll-American experience, one that will serve as inspiration to anyone who aspires to be a coach--not only on the court but in every arena of life.

"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.

First Sentence:
"As I TURNED away from the post-game press conference and headed down that long corridor in Kansas City toward the dressing room, my feet and spirits dragged."

Reviews:
John Wooden is a coach's coach. His life and philosophy are simple but true. He set forth on his journey, and kept himself open to the possibilities of what he might become, and we are all richer for it. There is enough Basketball in the book to satisfy the "junkie" but the book is really about being the best person you are capable of becoming.

In memoir style, Wooden recounts the lessons of his youth and how they shaped his moral fiber and were essential foundations for his coaching style. Coach Wooden outlines his pyramid for success, something all motivators of men should study. He also shares some of the wonderful philosophies with which he guides his life.

You can't miss with Wooden's thoughts, words and advice. If you're coaching young people, he hits home lessons that every player and coach should know and understand. Even if you're just a parent or someone's business supervisor, read this book to learn how to better deal with and motivate those who rely on you for leadership. Don't let the coach down and pass these wonderful skills on to the next generation. Wooden's vision will live long past his coaching days. Find out all about it right here.

Coach Wooden shows his ability to lead and educate through his expertise in the fundamentals and the basics. He demonstrates his ability to change tactics and styles with different individuals, which is essential in good, effective leaders. This book is recommended on several levels. At face value, it is an exceptional story about an exceptional coach and man. At a deeper level, it portrays a good example of how to lead and how to set an example for those you are trying to lead.
