Legendary college basketball coach John Wooden and Jay Carty know that when it comes down to it, success is an equal opportunity player. Anyone can create it in his or her career, family and beyond. Based on John Wooden’s own method to victory, Coach Wooden’s Pyramid of Success reveals that success is built block by block, where each block is a crucial principle contributing to life-long achievement in every area of life.
Each of these 32 daily readings takes an in-depth look at a single block of the pyramid, which when combined with the other blocks forms the structure of the pyramid of success. Join John Wooden and Jay Carty to discover the building blocks and key values - from confidence to faith - that have brought Coach to the pinnacle of success as a leader, a teacher, and a follower of God.

Hearing Coach Wooden personally explain his building blocks and mortar qualities.
Hearing about so many of basketball's superstars who were greatly influenced by this amazing man and as a result are successful men as well as successful athletes.
Clear and reasonable pace.
Yes. I couldn't wait listen to the next chapter.
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
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!
Didn't realize this book was half wooden, half Christian. Essentially, bought one book, got half of one. Had to fast forward through half the book to get past the bible crap and back to wooden.
Deceptive cover !
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.
Whether it be business, Athletics, or personal growth this audiobook is a must read. Encompasses so much for ones every day life and he can be translated into personal development in so many different platforms. If I was one who managed individuals this would be a must read for them great book love John!
Yes evry time to listen to his stuff i learn something
It was all good stuff
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.
"Religious book, very few wisdoms from John Wooden."
Very disappointing book. This is a religious book trying to promote christianism. Chapter 28-29 is even an attempt to promote Christianity above other religions. Very little wisdom from John Wooden about achievement. Extremely disappointing
