Decription: Norman Vincent Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinking, a classic bestseller, has inspired an optimistic perspective for millions of Americans. Now, in an inspirational and entertaining rebuttal, the legendary basketball coach Bob Knight explains why "negative thinking" will actually produce more positive results, in sports and in daily life. Coach Knight, the second-winningest coach in NCAA history with 902 victories, explains that victory is often attained by the team that makes the fewest mistakes. His coaching philosophy was to instill discipline by "preparing to win" rather than hoping to win. That meant understanding the downside and drilling his teams to prevent the things that could go wrong. And when his teams did win, he made sure they didn’t dwell on their success, but rather looked immediately to the challenges of the next game. He applies this lesson to business strategy as well.
About author: In college basketball, the name Bob Knight is synonymous with greatness and winning. He is among the youngest head coaches to have won 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700 and 800 career games. He was the first men’s college basketball coach to have reached 900 wins and until recently was the only member of this exclusive club. When he was 62-years old, he became the youngest of the four coaches to ever reach the milestone of 800 victories. Coach Knight earned his 880th career win at Texas Tech on January 1, 2007 with a Red Raider win over New Mexico (70-68). Coach Knight completed his coaching career at Texas Tech on February 2, 2008 with a 67-60 win over Oklahoma State University and announced his retirement soon after.
