The Right Kind of Hard Work 26. November 2009
Von Dr. Cathy Goodwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Hard Work traces the improbable story of Roy Williams, now legendary head coach of Kansas and North Carolina. Roy's family had no money but his mother instilled values that would serve him for a lifetime.

What made this story fascinating was the way Williams planned his career trajectory. Knowing he wanted to be a great basketball coach, he turned down a scholarship at Georgia Tech so he could apprentice with Dean Smith of UNC. He worked all sorts of jobs to get through college. Later he worked all sorts of jobs to be on the staff with Dean Smith first as a volunteer, then as a part-time assistant.

After becoming a full time assistant coach at UNC, Roy still thought carefully about his career moves. He turned down several well-paid jobs till the right athletic director came calling from Kansas. Once established at Kansas, Roy rejected UNC's first offer to return as head coach. .

I got a little bogged down in the details of some games, because I am not a follower of these teams. My only quibble is that we don't get a sense of Coach Williams's coaching personality. He talks a little about what he said to teams in specific situations. But we don't get the same sense of personality as we do with the stories of other coaches, such as the legendary Pat Summitt. She also talks about hard work and she shows how she integrates her philosophy into the teams.
"
Williams's story can be viewed as a fable for career planning. Start early and stay fixed on your goal" is the message we get.

Williams found that his gambles paid off. Could he have become a big-time college coach another way? Possibly. But this path makes a great story. Recommended as a life story even if you're not a die-hard basketball fan.

Hard Work On & Off the Court 13. Mai 2012
Von C. white - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a KU fan who was heart-broken when Roy Williams went to North Carolina. Now, after reading his book, I find his decision easier to understand and wish him the successes he so richly deserves. I really enjoyed reading this book and recommend it highly.

Hard Work 22. November 2009
Von F. McClamrock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Basketball fans will love this biography of a dirt poor son of an alcoholic father who is not really gifted at anything but gets ahead with "hard work" the title. UNC fans will love it and everyone will appreciate the rags to riches story of a coaching "legend in his own time".

Awesome insite into Coach's life 26. Februar 2014
Von rockchalk06 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was one of the Roy-boys for a long time. When Coach left KU for UNC, I was mad. I can't begin to explain how upset I was, along with 2 million others. Williams was KU to me. In 89 I was 10 and never really knew Coach Brown. Williams was all I had every known of KU.

After reading this book, I have a different outlook on what Coach was going through and why he wanted to leave. I think with a couple more years, he would have taken us to a NC, but it all worked out for a reason. Good luck to Coach Williams and UNC. Thanks for taking the time to write this book.
Roy ROCKS! 18. Juli 2010
Von Loni Hackworth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not a sports fan. I didn't even know who Roy Williams was. BUt, I picked the book because I was trying out our library's new ebooks section. And, I love nonfiction. So, that's how the book was selected. What a fortuitous find. This book is fantastic. I love Roy's work ethic, his humility, his love of his wife and children, his interest in his students, and cares about his team's character. Roy had a tremendous disadvantage with the father he had, yet he was a terrific father to his own children and to his teams. I admire this coach a great deal, so when the NCAA tournmanet rolls around next year, I'll be rooting for NC and Roy Walker.
