Product Description

Product Description

Duke University coach Mike Krzyzewski has won more games than any Division I basketball coach in history. He is also recognized around the world as the coach of Team USA, and on campus at Duke, the man known as Coach K is such an icon that students bow down to him he walks onto the court named in his honor. But Krzyzewski's prolonged and unprecedented success is complicated. How is he still winning? Why he is coaching basketball? What happens when he decides to move on? Duke graduate Ben Cohen, who writes about sports for The Wall Street Journal, set out to answer those questions by revisiting his own time in North Carolina and interviewing Krzyzewski and those around him in exclusive settings. The result is an intimate portrait of Krzyzewski written from a unique perspective.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quick read 31 Dec 2013
By Coach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm always fascinated by the thinking and motivations behind great coaches and this book about coach K provided incite that I'd never heard regarding his background at Duke.
2.0 out of 5 stars a good read 29 Aug 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Easy read but a little too much of hero worshipping. Doesn't really get into the cause of winning. Written from afar with not a lot of substance.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not That Great 13 Mar 2013
By D. Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Aside from the very capable writing this single is far too brief. Not being an avid Basketball fan of any kind I was hoping to learn more about Coach K and this satisfied that qualification but not very well. There are some random tidbits in here about Coach K but they don't have much relation to each other and no real over arching narrative other than being related to Coach K. I guess you could call this a (very) short Jeopardy pot pourri about the life of Coach K but not enough to know the man any better than some trivia but nothing approaching a better understanding or knowledge of the man.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story on Coach K from a former student's standpoint 21 Nov 2012
By Michael De Leon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read a ton about Coach K over the years, but to get the insight from a former Cameron Crazy and close observer of his was a real treat. From hearing about the times he would order pizza for the countless students camping overnight for the first game of the year to his bakground in becoming the coach at Duke, it was a great read.
