Summit Review:
Pat Summitt has been called a living legend. As head coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Vols, Summitt has taken her NCAA Division 1 women’s basketball team to back-to-back national championships in 1996 and 1997, and five titles in a 10-year span. In Reach for the Summit, with the help of former Sports Illustrated writer Sally Jenkins, she draws from 24 years as a successful head coach to provide motivational advice for anyone who wants to succeed in sports, business, and life in general. Structured around her Definite Dozen system, each chapter covers one of her 12 commandments of achievement by interweaving personal anecdotes, strategies for success, and basic ethics. A lot of people can win once, she writes. They get lucky, or follow their intuition, or strike on a good short-term formula. But very few people know how to repeat success on a consistent basis. They lose sight of their priorities, grow content, and abandon their principles. Summitt’s book is about building a system of principles and sticking to it. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable share our website edition of this title.
Product Information:
Pat Summitt, head coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols, is a phenomenon in women’s basketball. Her ferociously competitive teams have won three NCAA championships in a row–1996, 1997, and 1998. The 1997-98 Lady Vols posted a historic 39-0 record, prompting the New York Times, among many others, to proclaim them “the best women’s college team ever.” Now, in this groundbreaking motivational book, Pat Summitt presents her formula for success, which she calls the clash royale cheats “Definite Dozen System.” In each of the book’s twelve chapters, Summitt talks about one of the system’s principles–such as responsibility, discipline, and loyalty–and shows how you apply it to your own situation. Along the way, she uses her own remarkable story as a vehicle for explaining how anyone can transform herself through ambition. Pat Summitt will motivate you to achieve in sports, business, and the most important game of all–life.
