The Duke University men’s basketball team has served as the gold standard in college athletics for well over two decades—and that’s all because of the extraordinary impact of Mike Krzyzewski, the highly-respected coach of the Duke squad.

Coach K’s reputation as a teacher of young men has transcended his extraordinary success as a coach. The Duke team is always ranked at the top of the college game, year in and year out, but what’s truly remarkable about Coach K are his players and the legacy they leave behind: Grant Hill, Shane Battier, Elton Brand, Bobby Hurley, and on and on—these are not just great basketball players, but individuals who have become true leaders in American society, all thanks in large part to Coach K’s leadership.

So how does Coach K do it? In this audiobook, he offers forty short, hard-hitting essays—each centered on an important keyword and illustrated with anecdotes from his personal experiences-that educate and inspire. He reveals his tips, advice, and time-tested guidance on how he coaches and educates his players about life beyond the basketball court.

    " Just read this - a quick read. It is great for teachers - short vignettes about what certain words mean in the course of one's life - lessons about integrity and character. "

    " A good read, nice essays about 40 different words having to do with leadership, commitment, teamwork, etc...Great for anyone in a team setting or just for daily life, work, family, school. Coach K is one of the best leaders I have ever seen and one of my favorite people. I got to hear him speak this Fall and that was great to hear as well, he is a great storyteller and has so much knowledge and enthusiasm. "

    " Coach K is awesome. He is a great leader and mentor, and there need to be more coaches like him guiding young athletes and not just coaching the sport. "

    " This was an entertaining read. Not much depth, but a taste of some good stories behind some of Duke's successes. The format started to get repetitive but luckily the duration made up for it. "
