Editorial Reviews

Christian Science Monitor

This primer on the power of mentoring reveals much - both about the lessons that Wooden felt he learned and those he strove to teach.
Bob Costas

Few coaches have affected their players' lives so fully as John Wooden, so here's a natural question: Who mentored the mentor? Well, John Wooden is glad we asked …
Bobby Bowden

There is no coach or former coach in the U.S.A. more admired by his peers than John Wooden. When someone asks me who is the best athletic coach ever, my vote is John Wooden. A Game Plan for Life speaks loudly about the importance of learning and teaching for a lifetime. Coach Wooden's message is one reason I keep coaching!
Pat Summitt

My time learning from Coach Wooden--sitting and asking him questions, soaking up his answers--has provided some of the most significant lessons in my life. Any way that you can be mentored by a giant like him, including reading A Game Plan for Life, will provide great lessons for you, too.
