Publisher's Summary

From the legendary basketball coach who inspired generations of athletes and businesspeople, an inspiring book about the power of mentoring and being mentored.

After eight books, many of them best sellers, A Game Plan for Life is the one closest to John Wooden's heart: a moving and inspirational guide to the power of mentorship. The first half focuses on the people who helped foster the values that carried Wooden through an incredibly successful and famously principled career, including his college coach, his wife, Abraham Lincoln, and Mother Teresa. The second half is built around interviews with some of the many people he mentored over the years, including Kareem Abdul- Jabbar, Bill Walton, fellow coaches, family members, and even a middle school coach in Canada.

Their testimony takes readers inside the lessons Wooden taught to generations of players, bringing out the very best in them not just as athletes but as human beings. In all, its an inspiring primer on how to achieve success without sacrificing principles, and on how to build one of the most productive and rewarding relationships available to any athlete, businessperson, teacher, or parent: that of mentor and protege.

    "What a man"
    Where does A Game Plan For Life: The Power of Mentoring rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    John Wooden is such an inspiration. This book got me thinking about the mentors who have helped me. People that I admired but never thought of them in that way. Mr. Wooden really changed my perspective of people around me. He also made me more conscious of my own personal actions, because there might be people looking at me as a mentor. Great book.

    "Incredible!"

    I downloaded this at the suggestion of a friend, I wasn't sure about it. I am now. I would suggest this to anyone who is in the position of being a mentor to anyone.

    I'm not this kind of guy, but the last chapter made me cry. This is a truly inspirational book.

    "timeless"

    seems simple, but in reality few mentor correctly. This book tells stories of mentoring. You can add your own twists. It is not important how you do it, but take the initiative to be a mentor.
