and how his top players went on to shape and change the NBA. With
worldly wisdom, Wooden offers a very personal history of an unforgettable
time in college basketball, answering the most-asked questions about his
life, his career, and the players who made his team unbeatable.
Personal Review: They Call Me Coach by John Wooden
John Wooden is perhaps America's greatest coach. His UCLA basketball
team won ten national championships, including seven in a row.
Concomitant with winning was his insistence on character and virtue rather
than getting caught up with results.
This autobiography is a fascinating glimpse into Wooden's extraordinary
life. It chronicles his life as a player (many forget that Wooden was elected
to the basketball hall-of-fame as a player and coach), his coaching days
(mostly at UCLA), and a little bit about his activities after his retirement.
Interspersed in all of this are Wooden's coaching philosophy, pictures, box
scores of the national championship games, and Wooden's opinion on how
to improve the quality of NCAA basketball.
They Call Me Coach is tremendous for any sports fan, especially
basketball. It can also be enjoyed by those who enjoy reading about what
it takes to achieve success. Wooden was not a dictator, but imparted his
insistence on doing one's best to his players with meticulous detail.
TCMC is not a complete autobiography, and it omits many aspects of
Wooden's life. It is certainly not a "tell-all" account, nor is it perhaps the
best book on articulating Wooden's coaching philosophy. For that I would
recommend another of Wooden's books, appropriately titled Wooden.
There are also others out there.
They Call Me Coach is a wonderful account of a man who as achieved true
life success, and you will enjoy this read regardless of your previous
knowledge on Wooden or college basketball.
