Five Point Play: The Story of Duke's Amazing 2000-2001 Championship Season by Mike Krzyzewski (Warner Books 2001)(796.32363).

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. I didn't find the book particularly inspiring. However, it is an easy read and while I would obviously recommend this book more to Duke basketball fans or Dick Vitale, NCAA fans in general will enjoy this book that gives you some insight into Coach K and his how his philosophy extends beyond the court and into real life.

An amazing look at the mental and social aspects of coaching. This book focuses on Duke's 2000-2001 season, with the ups and downs facing Coach K and his players in their championship run. For more than just basketball fans.

I almost cried when I met Coach K at an Army/Duke football game. He is my hero.
