Just when you thought things were a little quiet on the John Calipari front, here he comes to announce the release of his new book, “Success is the Only Option: The Art of Coaching Extreme Talent.” This is Calipari’s fifth book and will be available to the public on November 15. According to CoachCal.com’s Metz Camfield, Calipari explains in-depth his team-building methods in ways that apply to CEOs, business owners, coaches, teachers, and leaders of all kinds.
“I’m asked all the time, ‘How in the world are you pulling this off? How in the world do you get such talented kids — not just one or two, but an entire team of elite talent — to come together and play for one another?’ Well, this is that story,” Calipari said. “I wanted to tell our story of how we get the most out of elite talent, how we create a culture of brotherhood and form a team with such talented individuals. It’s not an exact science and there are all kinds of ways of doing this, but this is our story. My hope is it might resonate with other leaders in similar positions.”
For “Success is the Only Option,” Calipari once again teamed up with author Michael Sokolove, his partner on the 2014 New York Times Bestseller “Players First: Coaching From the Inside Out.” Cal’s other past books include “Bounce Back” (2009), “Refuse to Lose” (1996), and “Basketball’s Half-Court Offense” (1996).
