    "pure gold"

    Coach K wrote another great book about leadership. Between Coach K's "moments" from the three year run to Olympic gold in Beijing, and his daughter's vibrant narration, this is fast moving and high energy book. Even though we all knew the outcome, his play-by-play of the final game even had me sweating.

    "Basking in gold"

    I just finished Coach K's The Gold Standard, and I feel sorta high! It is such a great story, chalked full of practical leadership applications. I especially love how he weaves basic good-human qualities into his life/coaching style.

    "Real Life leadership"

    You just get a lot of hands on experiences with some of the best athletes, competitors and coach K.
    This model, system, life style or whatever you will call it is beneficial for all aspects of life.
    It's a great team book and the understanding of giving roles is a defining staple in all the great leaders.

    "Not bad, not amazing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends. This book did not blow me away, but it contained some valuable insights for team building and leadership. Fans of basketball will definitely enjoy.


    What didn’t you like about Jamie K. Spatola’s performance?

    I did not care for the narration because the book is written in the first person by a man, then read by a woman. Didn't really make sense and I found it confusing.
