In three words, describe this book.
This book sucked.
I like Pitino, I LOVED "Success Is A Choice," I'm from Kentucky and I love Basketball (although no longer a UK fan), so you would think this would have been a great book. Nope.
Couldn't get done with it fast enough. Keeping in mind who he is, a basketball coach, and who he coaches, young people (in his terms), this book was filled with page after page of reminders that he is a coach of basketball, and "so this one time, at basketball camp..." f

I liked that I could hear him saying all this out loud (his voice is one of a kind). Good stuff, coach!

I picked this up at the library because I was looking for something educational, and helpful on leadership. As I started reading it I realized, wait a minute this is by a sbasketball coach and all of his examples havae to do with his basketball teams, so I was worried at first. I am not really into sports at all. However, it was a great, quick read. Lots of good, practical leadership knowledge, you can immediately apply. A good reminder of what it takes to be a strong and effective leader.

Lead to Succeed is a leadership orientated book. It talks about what it takes to lead groups through catchy inferences to basketball.

Inspiring thoughts about leadership, with lots of illustrative anecdotes from the author's life as a basketball coach.

Encouraging words from a very good leader, despite what happened with the Celtics and the wishy-washyness of whether he's staying or going at Louisville.
I read this when I was in retail management.
