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.

    The Coach's Wisdom Lives On

    This is a great book filled with the Legendary coach and man of John Wooden. His infamous pyramid of success is the foundation of how he lived his life, coached his players, and built his legacy. Its pocket sized, great for gifts and to have with you. I was given it by my basketball coach and it hasn't left my gym bag. He will be missed, but his Pyramid of Success lives on.
