Coach Wooden’s Forgotten Teams


Coach Wooden’s Forgotten Teams: Stories and Lessons from John Wooden’s Summer Basketball Camps is an encouraging book by Pat Williams (with Jim Denney) that recounts stories about the legendary basketball coach John Wooden. I enjoyed reading about Wooden’s basketball camps and the positive impact that he made on the players; we often remember Wooden for his role as a UCLA basketball coach, so it was nice to read about him in a different setting. Wooden’s advice is applicable to everyone – whether or not you’re an athlete – because his advice is life advice. He taught people how to lead, strive for greatness, and empower others. Wooden was a great example to others – not just through his words, but through his actions. Coach Wooden’s Forgotten Teams is an excellent book to read if you want to be inspired.
