Publisher's Description

When Coach John Wooden graduated from eighth grade his father gave him a handwritten card and said, "Son, try to live up to this." On the card, his father had written seven simple yet profound life principles:

Be true to yourself
Help others
Make friendship a fine art
Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible
Make each day your masterpiece
Build a shelter against a rainy day by the life you live
Give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day

These principles were the key to Coach Wooden's greatness--and his goodness. Through powerful stories and pithy advice, this book shares the wisdom that made Wooden happy and successful. This inspirational and conversational book will encourage, challenge, and motivate readers to build these principles into their own lives.

I urge you to read this pertinent book and in Coach Wooden's words “discipline yourself so no one else has to.” - Joe Maddon, Tampa Bay Rays manager

I only spent three years at UCLA while Coach Wooden was still coaching, but I received a lifetime of positive influences from being around him. I leaned on what I learned from him many times throughout my career. Being able now to pick up Pat Williams’ new book, Coach Wooden, and refresh my memories of the all conversations I had with Coach Wooden is very stimulating to me. I'm positive that you will find this wonderful book as valuable and powerful as I have. Thank you, Pat Williams! - Dick Vermeil, Former Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs head coach

John Wooden has had more influence on my coaching career than any other person. I have always admired the fact that John not only could tell you what he did as a coach, he could tell you why he did it and why it was important to do it that way better than any other coach I have known. He will be remembered for his tremendous coaching accomplishments on the court, but will be remembered even more for his faith, his character and the influence that he had on so many other lives. I highly recommend Pat Williams’ book. - Tom Osborne, University of Nebraska athletic director
