Publisher's Summary

In sports, business, and life, there is no better model for success than the Duke University basketball program. With eight Final Four appearances since 1986, including back-to-back national championships in '91 and '92, Duke has done it the right way: combined athletic competitiveness with academic achievement, total effort, and personal integrity...and all of that thanks to Coach Mike Krzyzewski, affectionately known as "Coach K."

Now Coach K. reveals his personal principles for leadership, from dealing with adversity in life or on the basketball court, to taking responsibility for your actions and learning how to trust your heartfelt instincts in times of trouble. The result is a book that shows how you can be successful in any leadership challenges you face. An inspiring look into the life, heart, and mind of an extraordinary leader, Leading with the Heart is about bringing out the best and demanding the best, from ourselves, from those around us, and from any organization that is playing to win.

Amazing book

Great message, great performance and now I feel motivated to not focus on success but on building up others. I realize my folly and where I've gone wrong. I highly recommend this book

Read the Actual Book

Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Leading with the Heart?

There was no benefit because its not even the whole book. I got the audiobook to follow along and it skips soo many pages.

A true inspiration and leader by example

We can all learn a lot from his experiences and outlook on life. I wish I was exposed to this sooner. It should be required reading in high schools across the globe

Could Have Been Better

Considering the great accomplishments of his career and life I was expecting a much more inspirational and insightful book. Pretty high level and basic. Too bad. I would rate 2 out of 5 stars.

For Basketball, Coaching, and Leadership fans

What did you love best about Leading with the Heart?

Great insight into the viewpoints of Coach K. He shares his leadership and coaching approaches to the game and to life. I enjoyed listening to Coach K read his own book and it is encouraging to those who lead any kind of team or company.
