For basketball coaches and every person who wants to become the best they can be!

This fable takes you on a journey into the heart of a coach's world. You'll meet Ted Faylor, the renowned Golden Whistle coach, who is at the pinnacle of his career; and Little K, his ambitious young student-assistant, who knows he can be a great coach and is sure he has all the answers. But the novice coach has a lot to learn and he learns it all the hard way. This learning leads him to the 10 Golden Nuggets, which hold the secrets to earning the Golden Whistle - success in basketball coaching and, more important, in life.

When you engage the teachings of the Golden Nuggets as Little K did, you'll find that you can improve your coaching, your players, your team, and the lives of everyone around you.
