They Call Me Coach
John Wooden/Jack Tobin
Product Overview
I first learned about Coach John Wooden after watching his TED talk on the difference between winning and success. As an English teacher and an Athletics coach, most notably for basketball, he was firm about never being late and developing a better understanding of success, which is not necessarily based on student grades. In this classic autobiography, Coach John Wooden shares his reflections on life, which includes poetry on every chapter. I particularly like the one on Chapter 7: "Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.", and his definition of success: "peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming." And by this, I understand it to mean, "every single day."
