    "This really could have been a pamphlet"

    Really thought I was going to hear more words of wisdom from the Wizard but that was not the case. Yes you hear a little of what the Wiz says about each of his blocks then you hear a bunch of scripture and the actually passages. Not against the bible but that is not what I was expecting. The narrator gives each passage number as well. As famous as the Bible is I was not interested in hearing the narrator give how the passage fits the building block and the mortar. Made the book dry and less interesting.

    Only gave it 3 stars because at least the blocks are given out with a bit of a reason as to why from the Wiz. Very tempted to have given it just 2 stars

    "They Call Him "Coach"!"

    As a student athlete back in the 70's when Coach Wooden was at his peak, I had the pleasure to play against Coach Wooden's teams and watch far across the court as he masterfully coached his teams to excellence.

    He had such a knack for communicating to his teams what he expected on and off the court.

    I have befriended several UCLA coached players from that era, and every single one of them have nothing but glowing praises to heap upon the man they all call "Coach".

    This is an excellent book, not only about basketball, but more importantly about Life!

    "4 hour sermon by Jay Carty"
    Any additional comments?

    I though this was going to be about John Wooden's coaching. It was more of a sermon from one of his grand kids. Thanks. I'll continue to look for a book about John Wooden.

    "shoving god down your throat"
    What would have made Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success better?

    I did not realize I was buying a religious book. Although I really wanted to listen to John Woodens philosophies, I did not realize I was going to have sit through being preached to. It is not just a little mentioning of god, this book shoves it down your throat. I can not do it,I have tossed out the book. The audio preview should include one of the religious sections and it should be indicated in the description as being a highly religious based book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Wooden and Jay Carty again?

    No!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is fine


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Repulsion


    Any additional comments?

    no

    "Better in written form"

    I'm a huge fan of John Wooden. I was looking for a good book with his philosophy. This book certainly is good for that. However, two things kept me from giving this a higher review.
    1. This book is more religious that I thought it would be. I probably should have read the description better.
    2. This is one of the few books that is better in print, like a textbook would be, because I would have liked to refer to a printed chart of his pyramid and make notes.
