Reach for the Summit
Weaving stories of her medal-winning trips to the Olympics and her experience as a college coach, Summit delivers an uplifting message for anyone with the desire to succeed in sports, business, and life.
Pat Summitt, head coach of the Universityof Tennessee Lady Vols, is a phenomenon in women's basketball. Her ferociously competitive teams won the NCAA championship in 1996 and 1997, and they've won five times in the last ten years. After twenty-four years as head coach at Tennessee, Summitt is well on her way to becoming the winningest coach in NCAA Division 1 women's history.
Now Summitt has written the first motivational book by a high-achieving female coach. In "Reach for the Summit, " she 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 -- ans shows you how to apply it to your own situation.
