College basketball coach Rick Pitino gets to the crux of success with his belief in having a "PHD," of sorts: Be Passionate, Hungry, and Driven. Pitino's personal growth guidelines can be applied to business, as well as basketball. He sprinkles anecdotes from his life, on and off the court, and uses examples from the corporate world. In his 50s, Pitino is the model of a person who has adapted to circumstances—especially in today’s culture of instant results. Holter Graham is a solid narrator whose range is admirable, and he stresses Pitino's points, from goal-setting to philanthropy. But his much younger voice lacks the lifelong authority Pitino brings to his book. Nonetheless, Graham's reading is well paced and well modulated. Sports and business types will appreciate these ideas, which come from someone who lives what he writes. M.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
