Book Overview

Avery Johnson is a coach, a teacher, and sometimes even a preacher, but most of all, he is a motivator, driving his team with the same fiery passion that allowed him to earn his championship credentials as an NBA player. Growing up in New Orleans's Lafitte Housing Project, he was never the biggest, fastest, or strongest, but by the strength of his will and character, he persevered. Now he offers the lessons he learned on his journey from the bottom...

Great Lessons to build on!!!

Avery Johnson was just another guy who got overlooked in life. He had determination and discipline to keep moving forward when things didn't always go his way. He bounced around from team to team, but he never gave up in God and in himself to succeed at a high level. It teaches us all that we are capable of great things as long as we stay focused, persevere and always look to God in all that we do.


I recommend this book to everyone from a teenager on, even to retirement age. It gives food for thought, gets you back on the road of your goals in life, and makes you realize you can accomplish anything your want, if the real desire is there. I am not a sport fan, but Avery Johnson is a person that has a voice that makes you listen to what he has to say. When the sports comes on and I hear his voice, I stop and listen. I am so glad that he is using his life in a positive way, and when I heard that he had a book out, I had to buy it. Not only was I not disappointed, I want everyone in my family to read it. My Grand Children, as they are starting their lives in the world will benefit, if they will only listen to what he has to say and the other members of my family, it will give them a boast to keep on the right track and have patience! A must read book for everyone!
