pure gold

Coach K wrote another great book about leadership. Between Coach K's "moments" from the three year run to Olympic gold in Beijing, and his daughter's vibrant narration, this is fast moving and high energy book. Even though we all knew the outcome, his play-by-play of the final game even had me sweating.
