Perhaps the least controversial sports honor in living memory was the selection of John Wooden as "Coach of the Century" by ESPN, honoring his ten NCAA basketball championships in twelve years. His UCLA teams won with quickness and always with class. Wooden was a teacher first and foremost, and his lessons -- taught on the basketball court, but applicable throughout one's life -- are summarized in his famed Pyramid of Success. An all-city high school player in Los Angeles, Hill played -- a little -- in three national championships, from 1970 to 1972. Hill was upset at how unequally Wooden treated his starting players, and clashed with Wooden over a variety of social political issues. Hill went on to a successful career in television, rising to the presidency of CBS Productions. And one day, some twenty-five years after graduating from USLA, he realized that everything he knows about getting the best out of his people he had learned directly from Coach John Wooden. Be Quick -- But Don't Hurry! tells the story of their renewed friendship while sharing the lessons and secrets that hold the key to managing creativity in the idea-driven economy of the twenty first century. Full of sound advice and warm reminiscence, this is the management book of a lifetime.
