In sports, business, and life, there is no better model for success than the Duke University basketball program. With eight Final Four appearances since 1986, including back-to-back national championships in '91 and '92, Duke has done it the right way: combined athletic competitiveness with academic achievement, total effort, and personal integrity...and all of that thanks to Coach Mike Krzyzewski, affectionately known as Coach K.

Now Coach K. reveals his personal principles for leadership, from dealing with adversity in life or on the basketball court, to taking responsibility for your actions and learning how to trust your heartfelt instincts in times of trouble. The result is a book that shows how you can be successful in any leadership challenges you face. An inspiring look into the life, heart, and mind of an extraordinary leader, Leading with the Heart is about bringing out the best and demanding the best, from ourselves, from those around us, and from any organization that is playing to win.

    " I really liked this book. He shared quite a few stories from basketball and has some great quotes when it comes to leadership. Coach K draws on his experiences growing up and his military education to create a winning culture at Duke. He has created a winning formula and it was insightful to see how he did it. "

    " I read the non-fiction book Leading with the Heart by Mike Krzyzewski who is the head basketball coach at Duke University. I think that the purpose he had in writing this book was to inform the reader on how to develop good coaching skills as well as applying them to your everyday life, and allowing you to become a better individual along with becoming an even better teammate. In the book, Coach K talks about using your time wisely, and not wasting it doing things that are going to hurt you, and also the team. He also discusses the importance of trust and leadership in order for the team to succeed. Another thing that Coach K talked about in his books was academics. This stood out to me because he makes sure that his players are getting their work done, and also using their time wisely and not waiting till the last minute to get their work done. I think that this book is an exposition, and that this writing style fits the book well because throughout the book he is explaining and giving examples. I really liked this book because it deals with basketball and also Coach K is a role model to me, and hearing the things he has to say, and the way he approaches things really had me interested throughout the book. I don't read books very often, but this book had me interested the whole time, and kept me thinking about his way of coaching, and how effective it really is. Coach K's book Leading with the Heart is an excellent book, and I really recommend reading it! "
