Publisher's Summary

Mike Krzyzewski's eight trips to the Final Four and two national championships with Duke University make him one of the most successful college basketball coaches of all time. With Donald T. Phillips, the best-selling author of Lincoln on Leadership, Krzyzewski explains the techniques that have made his program so successful and offers advice on using those same strategies to excel in both your business and personal lives.

Coach K's blueprint for success begins in the preseason by building the right team and allowing dynamic leaders to step forward. In the regular season, he stresses teamwork and finds ways to turn negative situations into something positive. His teams' postseason victories come from allowing time to refresh and renew their commitment as well as from focusing on the task at hand.

With personal examples from his life and coaching career, Krzyzewski offers unbeatable tools for success. Narrator Richard M. Davidson's conversational style perfectly matches Coach K's relaxed tone.

Coach K fan

I've always been a Coach K fan but now that I know more of his story, I'm an even bigger fan. 💙Loved how he blended his heart for the game of basketball and coaching with the game of life.

Wasn’t a huge fan of Coach K til now

Wow! This was a great book from the beginning to the end. Learned a lot about Coach K and developed a huge respect and appreciation for his story and approach to coaching and life. I highly recommend this book. My only criticism of the audio read is it would have been better if Coach K himself had read the book. Would have that much better to hear expressed directly from the man himself.

Book review

I really enjoyed listening to this book on Coach K's success as the Duke basketball coach. It was at once humorous and poignant, but a most interesting story.

What a great friend.

I'm thankfull to be part of the Krzyzewski family. I felt that way a long time ago when it was my dream to play for Duke. Listening felt like reminiscing, but it was just a dream. My dream.
