This book gives a very insightful view on one’s own experiences with leadership. Coach K’s experiences can be related to instances in our own lives and he shares personal details on how he responds to situations. This makes the reader feel very welcome and I know I certainly was. Coach K invites others to take up roles in leadership and gives encouragement along the way. It’s a great book for people who hope to get more out of life and to help others.

Susanne Cardwell is the wholehearted advocate of the spiritual views of Kirby Thibeault, author of Wealth ==== Leading with the Heart: Coach K`s Successful Strategies for Baseketball, Business, and Life by Mike Krzyzewski (Coach K) and Donald T. Phillips provides provocative, real-life anecdotes that capture the meaning of the spirit of winning for the team. Coach K shows that through the spirit of playing FOR the team - and not strictly for the win -- and with the spirit of those who can be considered 'the HEARTS of the TEAM,' possibilities become boundless. ==== It's not the win that defines success. It's the spirit first, through which the success follows. Sometimes the team stumbles and sometimes the team loses. Every team and every human being goes through these trials and tribulations. What defines the spirit of success, as taught to me by Kirby Thibeault, author of a book of inspirational poetry titled Wealth, and reflected in the teachings of Coach K, is the ability to overcome psychological obstacles, to see and strive for the most positive possibilities, to never give up, to look outside the 'box,' to look within, and to discover the true meaning of winning. ==== Kirby Thibeault, author of Wealth, expresses a similar perspective in his forward titled 'Wealth' when he writes 'It's realization is like that of the discovery of the divine. All that was unknown and limiting becomes clear and liberating. What was once feared becomes friendly.... It's an awakening of the spirit.' ==== Coach K delivers tips that help define the winning attitude in teams, in leadership roles, in success, in defeat, in life, and in considerations of humanity and love.' ==== Susanne Cardwell, owner/operator of Advert Marketing Solutions and avid supporter of the spiritual views of Kirby Thibeault, author of book Wealth.

This is one of the finest books on leadership I have read. Coach K arrived at Duke and built a winner based on 'tradition' and 'trust.' His roadmap should be a guideline for all who want to be successful leaders in any phase of life.

This is an excellent book on leadership written by someone who really knows the subject! After reading this book, you really understand why Coach K and Duke have been so successful-he know that it's the people who matter the most. Whether you are already in a leadership position or preparing yourself for a leadership position, READ THIS BOOK AND APPLY IT. You and the people around you will glad you did.

I had tears in my eyes after I read this book. Coach K ranks higher on my list of role models than anyone else (including Michael Jordan). He taught me so much in this book that I have a completely different view on life, and now have a great relationship with my parents. Anyone in any stage of their life should read this book. Because of his words he made me realize how good of a basketball player I am and how much better of a person I can be. I went from 4 points, 1 rebound, and 1 block a game to scoring 13 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks a game. And for the first time in a long time I am truly happy.

I really enjoyed the way Coach K related his leadership as a basketball coach to that of a business leader. Effective management relies on the leader to be flexible and understand situations that require different management techniques. This book helps illustrate that philosophy. In addition, it really helps one to understand the importance of not dwelling on the negative, but on how to turn that negative into a positive...for the entire team's sake.

Coach K's entires succes hinges on believing in what you're doing. When his team was trailing by 1 point with 2.1 seconds left in overtime of the 1992 East Regional final, he took them into a huddle and said, 'The first thing is we're going to win. And here's how we're going to do it.' That, it in a nutshell, is this book.

I wanted this book because I love Coach K but I found it absolutely riveting because of the way he wove in stories about players he has coached with realistic lessons about life and motivation. To my surprise, I stayed up until 1 am to finish it and I would never normally read a book on leadership. I would recommend this to almost anyone as it provides advice on working in groups and how to inspire others to work as a team. Coach K emphasizes treating people as individuals, since no one approach works on everyone. He comes across as a very caring individual who makes his players part of his own close-knit family. Go Duke!

This book is a must have for any leader. Coach K uses stories from his famed career as well as stories from outside the basketball world to create his vision of leadership. I find myself going back to this book over and over to stregthen my leadership style.
