5.0 von 5 Sternen Wooden : A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and O, 14. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I found a new life for myself through exercising and applying some of the philosophies of John Wooden as they are revealed in his book. As an AAU coach for Lower Bucks Baskerball Group in Bucks County Pennsylvania, I wanted to teach my kids how to become successful. I read the entire book and found myself learning how to become successful in my own life: work, marriage, friendship, coaching. I wish I could spend a weekend with coach Wooden so I could learn more. The book changed my life. It's all true, to become successful, you must start with a solid foundation. As a Certified Oracle Database Administrator, I have become more proficient in my professional life as a result of applying the concepts built into JohnW's Pyramid of Success. If ever you wished to aspire to begin anew in life, learn from this man. I've found true peace of mind in knowing that I did the best I could in becoming the best I possibly could become. Having the oppourtunity to work with youngsters is a great oppourtunity to help develop their future. I'm teaching these kids what John Wooden taught his UCLA players during the championship years. It's a great experience knowing that they will benefit from his teaching. I was a very successful athlete when I was young, but I never appreciated what it took to reach the pinnacle of my own personal success. What I found was I had been doing the type of things as covered with in this book all along. The hard part is trying to teach kids how to become successful. You would generally say, you have to work hard. Well, John Wooden knew you had to like to work hard, but also, share your successes with your friends, of which, you remain loyal too and cooperate with. I could go on and on. I've found myself preaching the success terminology to everyone that aspires to become successful. I have three very young children. My son Robert is two years old and he can dribble a basketball while watching the trash truck drive by in front of the house. He's amazing, just like his father, only better. I hope coach Wooden knows that I'm going teach my son everything I possibly can, just like JohnW's father did for the great coach. I'm preparing for my coaching future now by adhereing to many of the great teachings and revelations contained within the pages. Each year I coach, my teams will begin with the Cornerstones of the Foundation of the Pyramid, which leads to success. Then I'll teach them the "Give and Go" and "Pick and Roll" while I teach them about Loyalty and Self-Control, the relationships between Initiative and Alertness and Determination, how to achieve Poise and Confidence, how to have faith and patience, how to reach competitive greatness and ultimately, being successful in life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wooden- The Wizard does it again!, 26. Januar 2000
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I bought this book while visiting the UCLA campus to attend a mens' basketball game. I received "Practical Modern Basketball" from my high school coach as a gift when I began my teaching and coaching career in 1976. This became my coaching bible for years to come. When I saw this new book, Wooden, I bought it without hesitation, thinking that John Wooden's "Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court" was as much a mystery as it was curiosity relative to my appreciation and utilization of the words of wisdom provided in the book I received as a gift in 1976.
My career in public education has allowed me to seriously reflect on my life as it pertains to personal gratification of preparing for unknown opportunities and being able to rationalize with poise and confidence. I attribute many successes in my life to the Wooden philosophy that I followed in my early years of my career. Wooden's, reflections, is an outstanding assessment of what a man of Mr. Wooden's character achieved through hard work, dedication to his own philosophy, and the love for life and people. I have recommended this book to personnel within my organization,to coaches and friends. It is also a great asset for parents who need direction in how to raise their children, basing all dialoge and communication on respect. I truly respect the real value of this book as an asset to my future and my family and my responsibities as Assistant Superintendent of Schools!
Thanks, Eddie Booth, Winnemucca, NV

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.", 5. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
John Wooden, former UCLA Basketball coach, came together with Steve Jamison to compile a book based on John Wooden's philosophies. This book, "A Lifetime of Reflections and Observations On and Off the Court" appeals to everybody. If you're a fan of basketball, play basketball, or are a father or mother, son or daughter, John Wooden gives his advice to everybody. Most people will think that this book is only about basketball, not at all. If you're looking for answers for any kind of problem you are facing, I'm sure John Wooden will have some affect on you.
John Wooden is an 88 year old who was a former UCLA basketball coach, leading the Bruins to 10 championships in 12 years. He grew up in a small town and has lived a simple and basic life. In the book, he talks about success as a person, personal goals, acting towards others, behaviour, discipline, parenting, leadership, adversity, and numerous other topics - of course including basketball.
This book has made me a better person and a better basketball player. It has taught me that I can learn from experience, not things that I can learn before-hand. It has taught me how to constantly improve and how to always work harder. To be industrious and enthusiastic in everything I do! With that said, I'll leave you with a quote from John Wooden that has helped me improve in school, on the court, or whenever I'm working; "Failing to prepare is preparing to fail."

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Plain and Simple Truth, 20. April 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
It's just a small little book, how can it be anything more than a collection of cliches? Hmmm, good question. This is all I can tell you: it works. Philosophy often has so little practical application in the real world. Not so with Wooden's message. Read it, absorb it, live it. You'll see.
Ten year's ago I wrote a letter to coach Wooden. He was so very kind to respond. His letter remains on my wall to this day, and the words of wisdom in that letter are within this book. I asked Coach Wooden how you can get players to "over-achieve." He corrected me. "Nobody can overachieve," he wrote, "you can only do the best that you're capable of doing. It's the leader's job to create an environment where the followers can rise to their own level of competence."
That is the key.
Create an evironment where you can become the best that you can be. Follow his words of advice and before you realize it you are within that "healthy environment." Next thing you know, good things just start happening more often than they did before.
Life is hard no matter what you do. Coach Wooden doesn't claim anything different, but his philosophy, which is really a country blend of Christianity, Zen, and a host of other philosophies simplified, creates that "healthy environment."
Short, simple, genius.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Took my game - and life - to another level., 26. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book has had perhaps the greatest influence on me as of late. I have drank from this book deeply, and read it several times. In fact, when I seek advice, I open up the little blue book and look for something that says about problems. Not only has this book took my basketball skills to a whole nother level, but it has made me a better person all around. I have changed many of my bad habits, and I'm pretty glad I have changed, as many of my friends like my new attitude, etc. For basketball players, this book will get you into it mentally. Before I read this book, I only had the physical talent to play the game, now I feel as if I have a stable mental view and I am in the game mentally. This book teaches you so much, I cannot say enough. Coach Wooden even guides you step by step, pillar by pillar, through the period of success. This book is a must for basketball fans, players, and for the average person. Even if you despise sports, this book contains information on life itself, it's a must for all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is scripture for the basketball fans., 4. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
For anyone who's familiar with college basketball, or has heard the sometimes maniacal ravings of Bill Walton on NBC, the name John Wooden symbolizes all that was right with basketball lo those many years ago. Wooden's intelligence, ingenuity and precise sense of how to teach, lead and deal with people is something everyone can learn from. Wisdom such as his is rare. It isn't bestowed on many. Fortunately for basketball fans, Wooden chose to direct his wisdom to the game instead of what may be perceived as a nobler profession. Wooden's "Pyramid of Success" adorns my wall now that I have read this book. This is scripture for the basketball fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A reference book for the everyday competion of Life!, 17. September 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I grew up during UCLA's dominance of college basketball and admired Coach Wooden from the beginning. This book offers insights commonly forgotten by today's hectic lifestyles and values. It points out how honesty, integrity, discipline and hard work can lead to a lifetime of fullfilment; not arrogance, but humility. The principles and experiences detailed in this book can help a willing soul in maximizing potential in LIFE. I plan on teaching my children these values.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Some important guidelines for people of all ages, 5. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is not about basketball, it is not about skills or tactics but about the unconditional love of a man for a game and all that surrounds it... It is about life, about principles, about respecting and being respected... It is ultimately about success... the success of a man that worked hard, stood by his principles and earned the respect of all (and 10 championships...). I like the book a lot... it is a good reading. "LIFE IS A JOURNEY, NOT A DESTINATION"
