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.
