President William J. Clinton:
"If you are a college basketball fan like I am, you’ll understand why I’ve long admired John Calipari’s leadership style. While no coach treasures a win more than John, this terrific book reveals his greater purpose—to lead his young players to better lives, and then challenge them to give back to others."
Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last:
“Players First is filled with so many nuggets of wisdom, I found myself highlighting and taking notes as I read. Writing like a loving but honest parent, Calipari shares stories of how he learned to inspire greatness from his players and how they pushed themselves to achieve more than they thought possible. A truly human account of what it takes to win, Players First proves that winning has nothing to do with the score, it has to do with the people.”
John C. Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author and speaker:
“Players First captures why so many kids want to play for John Calipari and why so many mothers and fathers ask him to take their boys and mold them into young men. Through stories and examples, Coach Cal brings out his most important teaching tool, which is servant leadership. Teaching these young people to care more about others than themselves is what sets his program apart and what sets this book apart from other coaches’ books. It's a must-read.”
Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager®, Leading at a Higher Level, and TrustWorks!:
“I’ve been an admirer and friend of John Calipari for over thirty years—ever since his coaching days at the University of Massachusetts, where I was a professor. I’ve watched Cal and his wife, Ellen, treat his players as family and help bring out their best, not only on the court but also in their future lives as spouses, parents, friends, business leaders, and contributors to their communities. Players First is not just for sports fans—it’s for anyone who is open to learn that viewing your people as your number one customer is the key to long-term success. Wins and profits are the byproducts of putting your players/people first. I love this book—and so will you and the people you care about and count on at home, at work, and in the community where you live. Thanks, Cal.”
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
John Calipari is the current head coach of the University of Kentucky’s men’s basketball team and a veteran of nearly twenty college seasons at the University of Memphis and the University of Massachusetts. Widely regarded as one of the greatest program builders in all of college basketball, Calipari and his teams have earned twelve conference titles, fifteen NCAA Tournament berths, five Final Fours, and the 2012 NCAA championship. Calipari’s eight 30-win seasons are third most for a head coach in NCAA Division I history.
Michael Sokolove is a contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and the author of four books: Drama High, Warrior Girls, Hustle, and The Ticket Out.
‘Players First’ written by John Calipari is such book that speaks about demanding and challenging job of basketball coach that provides a window into the fascinating world of people whom we admire how calmly explain players during the timeouts how to reverse the result or on the verge of a nervous breakdown jump along the line while enduring the referees mistakes.
This book will particularly be interesting to young coaches who will certainly be able to learn a lot from Calipari, a former New Jersey Nets, University of Memphis Tigers and the University of Massachusetts Minutemen coach.
In ‘Players First’ Calipari offers an overview of his career while sharing also many trivia information about the adventures he went through, but besides in his book he also presents an interesting perspective on the principles and methods Calipari advocated, which were obviously successful with regard to the achievements of the teams under his leadership attained, such as leading Kentucky to NCAA Tournament Championship throne back in 2012.
Due to the style in which the author (perhaps with few suggestions of co-author) wrote his book, it can be recommended not only to big fans of basketball or teams he led, but also people who are generally interested in sports and human psychology which is especially emphasized in team sports where only coaches who can boast that they have mastered that aspect became successful.
It was interesting to see how much time and hard work has stood in the way of his success which is a kind of advice and warning to all those who wish to achieve coaching results overnight.
Also in the book reader will be able to find thoughts of a man who was “deep inside” about all the money that circle around in this sport, about the rich contracts and benefits that are often difficult to convert into the result because the game is played by the team, not the individual and money he earns.
‘Players First’ in any case, is a book that can be recommended to all who love sports, sports biographies or this successful coach, but with the words I started this review I’ll finish, as well - John Calipari’s book will give you all the information what it means to be a basketball coach.
A good and bad in the equal shares.

Anthony Davis may be his best player yet and Coach Cal believes he will prove to be a cut above other League members.
