Our personal development book of the month is “Coach Wooden and Me” by Kareem Abul-Jabbar.
Kareem, a former NBA star and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, explores his 50-year friendship with his coach in this touching memoir. Coach John Wooden was revered as one of the greatest coaches in basketball history, leading his UCLA team to win ten national championships in a twelve year period, including a record-setting 88 game win streak.
Read or listen carefully, and you'll pick up many life lessons out of this one. The joys of close friendship, what it takes to become a superstar, and the attention to detail and care for the people that they coach that great coaches have, it's all in here.
