For Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke University men's basketball
team, certain words have special importance and force. Coach K
uses them every day to energize, motivate, and teach his players how
to be winners on the court and in every aspect of their lives. Now, in
Beyond Basketball, 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.
From the four most important words in life "I believe in you" to coping
with losing, relying on one's teammates, the importance of discipline,
and the rewards of taking pride in one's work, let Coach K guide you to
success the way he guides his team with the power of his words.
