John Wooden Reading List

At almost every speaking engagement I have I find myself asking the room full of coaches, "are their any John Wooden fans in the room?" Invariably I'm shocked that everyones hand does not skyrocket upward immediately. In the years that number is dwindling. I'm hoping that with Coach's passing, younger coaches will be called to do some research into the best coach of all-time, in any sport.

You can start with this reading list of books by, and about, Coach John Wooden.

A Game Plan for Life: The Power of Mentoring
Adventure Underground (Inch and Miles) D2 Children's book
Be Quick But Don't Hurry
Coach Wooden One on One: Inspiring Conversations on Purpose, Passion and the Pursuit of Success
