Coach John Wooden's teams won 10 NCAA men's basketball championships at UCLA, and Sporting News magazine named him the greatest coach of all time. Decades after he retired, and now after his passing, his wisdom capsulized so clearly in his famous Pyramid of Success continues to guide new generations of athletes, coaches, and people of all walks of life. In The Greatest Coach Ever, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes features 40 tributes from athletes, coaches, and other influential leaders like Bobby Bowden, Tom Osborne, Sue Semrau, Tony Dungy, Mike Singletary, Tamika Catchings, Joe Girardi, Jim Tressel and David Robinson paying honor to Coach Wooden and reflecting on how his example has challenged and changed them.
Their stories can challenge and change your life, too. Coach Wooden appreciated the tributes and the honor of being called the greatest coach ever, but felt uncomfortable with the title. He was eager to see that this book points to the one whom he calls the greatest coach ever.

I am great admirer of John Wooden. And was excited to read this book about those whose lives Coach Wooden has impacted. The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact that many of the individuals who contributed to the book did not do the actual voice over but just sent a letter along to be read by the narrator. I felt some of the passion that would've been there if the person who actually was impacted was reading it was missing.
