The Greatest Coach Ever: Timeless Wisdom and Insights of John Wooden Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Coach John Wooden's teams won 10 NCAA men's basketball championships at UCLA, and Sporting News magazine named him the greatest coach of all time. Decades after he retired, and now after his passing, his wisdom capsulized so clearly in his famous Pyramid of Success continues to guide new generations of athletes, coaches, and people of all walks of life. In The Greatest Coach Ever, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes features 40 tributes from athletes, coaches, and other influential leaders like Bobby Bowden, Tom Osborne, Sue Semrau, Tony Dungy, Mike Singletary, Tamika Catchings, Joe Girardi, Jim Tressel and David Robinson paying honor to Coach Wooden and reflecting on how his example has challenged and changed them.
Their stories can challenge and change your life, too. Coach Wooden appreciated the tributes and the honor of being called the greatest coach ever, but felt uncomfortable with the title. He was eager to see that this book points to the one whom he calls the greatest coach ever.

I'm not a sports fan.
I bought the book to go through some of the "chapters" with a Christian study group.
Heh. It's about 40 different athletes and coaches who each write a page or two that is then called a chapter.
The writing is lightweight and varies in quality. The pearls of wisdom from Coach and the Bible are the saving graces of this book.
If you're looking for a biography or history of the Coach and his teams, look elsewhere - you'll get very little of that here.
