Not only was John Wooden a great basketball coach, he was a master teacher.
In fact, he was a great coach because he was a master teacher. What Wooden has learned from others in the classroom and perfected on the practice court are fundamental principles of effective teaching, which are conveyed in You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned: John Wooden's Teaching Principles and Practices.
Co-author Swen Nater, one of Wooden's former players at UCLA, provides insightful first-hand accounts on the many life lessons he learned from Wooden that he has applied to his life since becoming a teacher himself. Wooden's principles conveyed by Nater and co-author Ronald Gallimore in this book can be studied and applied by teachers, coaches, patents, and anyone else who is responsible for, works with, or supervises others.
In this revised version of the book, the authors include an afterword, in which specific examples and anecdotes are provided of how You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned has impacted people in the teaching, coaching, and business industries.

"Swen Nater and Ronald Gallimore combine their knowledge about teaching and basketball to deliver a deeply insightful look at the teaching practice of John Wooden. The book is a wonderful balance of personal stories from Nater and insights about teaching and learning from Gallimore that demonstrate the hard work, preparation, courage, and commitment to continuous learning that defines quality teaching.
