Reviews - What do customers think about Coach Woodens Pyramid Of Success?
Excellent Book for both young and adults Jan 4, 2007
I first heard of this book from a trainer in Mexico. It did not take me more than 30 minutes into reading to understand how valuable this book is towards self-development. It is easy to read and it's very convincing how each element in his building blocks have a directly impact on our lives. I use it to train adults and children with a slightly different approach but always giving credit to John Wooden and his book.
For those who are Christians, there is a segment at the end of each block with verses from the Bible for them to meditate on. I, personally, find it very useful. For those who are not Christians, they can simply ignore it as every element towards achieving success has a very logical rationale to it and it's spiritual beliefs is largely similar in other religions.
It's an excellent way to keep ourselves on track in everything that we do.
The Wizard of the court and life Mar 8, 2006

Excellent book. Great guide to life. Nov 29, 2005
What would you expect from Jay Carty? He is a Christian who writes from the Bible to spread the Gospel of Jesus; therefore, this is another wonderful devotional. Jay has done an excellent job with Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Sucess. Also, knowing Coach Wooden's faith it would be obvious that this would be a Christian must-read. Don't miss this one.
GREAT SOURCE FOR INSIGHT TO SET GOALS Sep 7, 2005
GREAT BOOK WRITTEN IN AN EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND STRAIGHT FORWARD MANNER.
A Successful Book! Jun 22, 2005
Loved the previous collaboration of Coach Wooden and Jay Carty (One on One), so had to pick this one up also. Have already selected it for our weekly Men's Bible Study and also for my Baseball Chapel group to read and discuss during our weekly meetings in addition to our Sunday Chapel sessions. Coach Wooden and Jay make a great team as Coach Wooden brings a common sense, no nonsense approach that any person, no matter what their beliefs might be, can relate to, while Jay adds relevant scripture references and spiritual insights-a successful combination!
