This is an okay book recalling Duke University's 2001 NCAA Championship run. The writing style is bearable, but the book itself is full of platitudes and cliches.

Mike Krzyzewski has been the basketball coach of the Duke Blue Devils for twenty-seven years, winning three NCAA championships and twelve national Coach of the Year awards. He is revered and respected by sports fans and business leaders everywhere. Coach K. lives with his family in Durham, North Carolina.More about Mike Krzyzewski...
