Coach Wooden and Me

Audiobook (Includes supplementary content)

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar explores his fifty-year friendship with Coach John Wooden, one of the most enduring and meaningful relationships in sports history.

In 1965, eighteen-year-old Lew Alcindor played basketball for Coach John Wooden at UCLA. It was the beginning of what was to become a fifty-year long relationship. On the court, they broke basketball records. Off the court, they transcended their athletic achievements to gain even wider recognition and tremendous national respect.

Part memoir, and part inspirational, Abdul-Jabbar reveals the lessons Coach Wooden taught him through the "Pyramid of Success" and discusses how they in turn shaped his life. Through beautiful storytelling, Coach Wooden and Me takes you back to the basics of what a coach should be.
