    so, so, good

    This book is a classic. Leaders of any kind should read this book, not only sports. This book reminds me of a quote:'Leadership is something you do with people not to them.' Not too much play by play,or technical sports talk.A good mix -in of direct quotes. Really inspiring.

    Five-Point Play is a Five-Star Read

    This book isn't just about Duke's third national championship. It's about how an outstanding leader and teacher helped others to develop and mature. The book showed how a group of young men with enormous talents became a single unit that valued unselfishness and team work and showed a coach who valued his players more than just winning.

    Extraordinary man with extraordinary talents

    This extraordinary man with extraordinary talents has a gift which even surpasses his coaching abilities. The character and heart he instills in his players as decent human beings is a testament to his skill and caring and his goal to challenge and get the best from each player who wears Duke Blue, whether on or off the basketball court.

    A MUST HAVE FOR ANY DUKE FAN!

    Coach K did another wonderful job of giving Duke fans a look at what happens behind the scenes. It is so interesting to read the details of the season from his perspective. He also has a lot of player reactions. I find it so interesting to read the details of the practices and team meetings and the coaching staff's responsiblities. This book is a great read for any coach who wants to learn from the best about the team concept. And it is a must have for any Duke fan!
