    25. A good read, nice essays about 40 different words having to do with leadership, commitment, teamwork, etcGreat for anyone in a team setting or just for daily life, work, family, school Coach K is one of the best leaders I have ever seen and one of my favorite people I got to hear him speak this Fall and that was great to hear as well, he is a great storyteller and has so much knowledge and enthusiasm.

    26. Not just a great coach or leader, but is superb teacher Coach K should be Teacher K the book is filled with great one words that he talks about, but what stands out is this book is not the end, it is his knowledge of understanding he must commit every day to get better One verse that he hit on was he does not say defense or win his team says together wow what a teacher, we all can learn from a hall of fame teacher.

    27. I expected from Coach K The one thing I liked about what he taught his team is that you must always make eye contact with a teammate or coach It s how you know they re telling the truth and being vulnerable with you A couple of other mediocre sound bytes I enjoyed were, You outlive your darkest day and Winners expect to win.

    28. a nice collection of stories and suggestions centered on various keywords for success adaptability, commitment, excellence, integrity, trust, etc Krzyzewski uses these words with his own teams and here communicates how various words and concepts can be used in various settings business, home, family, etc nothing groundbreaking, but a nice reminder.
