WOODEN A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court

by | Read by Beau Bridges, John Wooden, et al.

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

John Wooden is legendary among basketball coaches. He won 10 NCAA championships, including seven in a row. While always seen as a calm presence on the sideline, he was nonetheless a fierce competitor and drove his players hard in practice. Yet throughout his career, he remained true to ideals taught him by his parents back in rural Indiana. The book lists the advice he got from his father and shows how that has played out in his life. It also presents several of the coach's own rules for life. The book is not for basketball junkies. There's no insider information on famous games and players. It's for the everyday person, struggling to do his or her best at home, on the job, in the community. Beau Bridges's reading adds just the right touch of age and quiet reserve without being a parody of Wooden's voice. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
