From the Publisher
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 "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.

Excerpt
Never Wait 'Til Next Year

When I get after something, the veins in my neck stand out.  The color begins to rise up from my collarbone, and you can see the pulse going in my throat, and my eyes look like the high beams of an oncoming car.  I am what you would call a classic Type A personality. An extremely demanding person.  Certainly the people close to me would tell you that, including my seven-year-old son, Tyler.  In whom, may I just say, I have met my match.  The other night, Tyler pulled out his own front tooth, and it wasn't even that loose.  The fact that it was his only remaining front tooth, and that it bled like a slaughtered hog, and that he reminded me more than a little bit of myself, may have accounted for the exorbitant fee of seven dollars he received from the tooth fairy.

"Mama," Tyler says, when I get that look in my eye.  "Please put your sunglasses... [More...] [Edit review] [Delete review]
