Great incite information & inspiration
This is a book I would recommend to every population of listeners.
Wooden antithesis of Trump
Mr. Geoffreys. Worthwhile reading. A bit pollyannish. You could have addressed some criticisms of Wooden and tested them against the attributes of Pyramid. I can not think of a man, excepting Attila the Hun, who is such an antithesis of Wooden than Trump. So it is possible to be President while violating almost every Pyramid principle.
Another interesting contrast would be Wooden verses Rupp, a contemporary who is second among all men's college coaches in all-time winning percentage (.822), trailing only Clair Bee. Or Rick Pitino,
Jerry Tarkanian coached college basketball for 31 seasons. He spent the majority of his career coaching with the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, leading them four times to the Final Four of the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, winning the national championship in 1990. Tarkanian like Wooden utilized a pressing defense to fuel a fast-paced offense. Then in your back yard was Red and the Boston Celtics 17 NBA championships. Anyway, a comparative chapter would add value to your discussion of UCLA greats. THANKS
