Rick Pitino is a basketball icon: the only coach in college history to lead three different schools to the Final Four, the winner of the 1996 NCAA championship, the owner of a sparkling career record, a bestselling author, and a lock for the College Basketball Hall of Fame.Yet Pitino's journey has not been without life-altering adversity: After experiencing profound personal and professional losses, including three losing seasons as coach and president of the Boston Celtics, the devastating loss of his infant son, Daniel, and the additional tragedies of losing two brothers-in-law, Pitino writes, "From that point on, my life changed forever. Nothing will ever be the same."This realization gave Pitino a new perspective, and the failures and tragedies he recounts make this book unique. It's about how to succeed after you've failed; how to pick yourself up after being knocked down; and how to reframe yourself and see the world in a new light. This is a comeback story, a manual for overcoming life's difficulties. In Rebound Rules: The Art of Success 2.0, Pitino's crafted a book that's more deeply personal, more inspiring, more practical, and more powerful than any he's written before.
