Meet the Author

John Wooden (1910-2010), guided the UCLA Bruins to ten NCAA basketball championships over a 12-year period, including four perfect seasons and an 88-game winning streak. He was named ESPN’s “Greatest Coach of the 20th Century” and voted “#1 Coach of All Time” by The Sporting News. Sports Illustrated said it best when they said: “There’s never been a finer man in American sports than John Wooden, or a finer coach.” In 2003 John Wooden was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    They Call Me Coach by John Wooden is a must read for anyone inte

    They Call Me Coach by John Wooden is a must read for anyone interested in sports, but it is also a must read for anyone who wants to read about a man with great integrity and character. The book gives a detailed description of John Wooden's coaching career and his path to success. The book does not highlight how John Wooden was the greatest coach to ever coach college basketball and how he has won the most national championships by any coach with a total of 10. However, it emphasizes the values that John Wooden held and gives a detailed description of each team John Wooden coached. It also details the different styles of coaching he used for each team. Finally, the book gives a glimpse into John Wooden's family life with his kids, and religion. John Wooden always had integrity when dealing with any issue and his character and perseverance helped him through the difficult obstacles that were before him when coaching. Overall, this book was hard to put down and it allowed me to analyze different aspects of my character. I can't emphasize enough the fact that this book is a must read.

    if one does not leave a comment they more or less have not passe

    if one does not leave a comment they more or less have not passed the 1st grade and can't write let alone read. So ignore the ratings that don't leave comments. This is a great book which is applicable to all areas of life.
