For Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke University men's basketball team, certain words have special importance and force. Coach K uses them every day to energize, motivate, and teach his players how to be winners on the court and in every aspect of their lives. Now, in Beyond Basketball, he offers 40 short, hard-hitting audio essays that will educate and inspire. Each is centered on an important keyword and illustrated with anecdotes from his personal experiences.

This book is so worthwhile for anyone, but especially parents of athletes and any young people with an interest in basketball, coaching, teaching, etc. I was not a huge Duke fan although I have always pulled for them and admired their program and Coach Krzyzewski's insights detailed in this book have made me happy to become a more ardent follower. He is a teacher and a friend, much like John Wooden, and I hope he keeps on discovering more words to add to his list and writes another book soon. Give this book to any basketball coach you know and they will love it and benefit from reading it.
