Publisher's Summary

Perhaps the least controversial sports honor in living memory was the selection of John Wooden as "Coach of the Century" by ESPN. Wooden presided over college sports' most famous dynasty, winning 10 NCAA basketball championships in 12 years. His UCLA teams won with quickness, and always with class. Wooden was a teacher first and foremost, and his lessons - taught on the basketball court, but applicable throughout one's life - are summarized in his famed Pyramid of Success.

An all-city high school player in Los Angeles, Andrew Hill played - a little - in three national championships, from 1970 to 1972. At that time, Hill was upset at how unequally Wooden treated his starting players, and clashed with Wooden over a variety of social and political issues.

Hill went on to a successful career in television, rising to the presidency of CBS Productions. And one day, some 25 years after graduating from UCLA, he realized that everything he knows about getting the best out of his people he had learned directly from Coach John Wooden.

Be Quick - But Don't Hurry! tells the story of their renewed friendship, while sharing the lessons and secrets that hold the key to managing creativity in the idea-driven economy of the 21st century. Full of sound advice and warm reminiscence, this is the management audiobook of a lifetime.

    "Outstanding"

    Maybe it's my love of basketball or my already strong appreciation for Coach Wooden but I found this book a great read. Not only did it give the Pyramid of Coach's philosophy but it also gave practical examples that can be used outside of basketball and in the real world. For basketball and business enthusiasts - I would highly recommend.

    "Unexpected honesty"

    When I first started listening to this book I thought it was going to be a character-assassination of John Wooden. I was taken aback at first by the brutal honesty of Andy Hill in narrating his 'Wooden Years'. However, as the book evolved, and Coach Wooden's success principles were discussed one by one and put in the perspective of life experience, I could see where the book was going. It still leaves me a little unsure of 'Coach', but in admiration of his consistency and in awe of the empire he created.

    "Great listen"

    This was my first Wooden book. Good listen starts slow at first but there is great information contained. My next book is to be Wooden on leadership.
