This book is the late John Wooden's moving and inspiring guide to the value of sharing knowledge, experience and life lessons. "Mentors are all around us," writes Wooden. "Every piece of knowledge is something that has been shared by someone else. If you understand it as I do, mentoring becomes your true legacy. It is why you get up every day, to teach and be taught."
The man everyone simply called "Coach" penned an inspiring primer on how to achieve success without sacrificing principles, and on how to build one of life's most productive and rewarding relationships. The book's foreword is written by renowned leadership expert John C. Maxwell.
