The Art of Success 2.0Book - 2008
Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino's previous books have taught readers career lessons using insights gained from his long career in the game. Here he tells an even more personal story, describing how he rebounded from several major life crises, including the September 11th death of his best friend and brother-in-law and the loss of his toddler son Daniel. Recouping after such tragedies has been far more daunting than any coaching disappointments, although those too are discussed in this candid book.--From publisher description.
