    1. Geno the man is so much more interesting than Geno the myth. I've known that for a long time, but this book is both deeply personal and incredibly insightful about the most decorated college basketball coach of all time. To think that he was already considered one of the best in 2006 with five national championships and he's gone on to win six more


    2. Excellent account of what makes Geno and the UConn Women's Basketball program tick. It was interesting to know how Geno built the program, along with Chris Dailey, into what it is today. Now I want Jackie MacMullen and Geno to come together again and give us the next installment: 2006 to 2017!



    3. I don't follow women's college basketball, so I don't benefit from any background knowledge of GenoI wonder how my review might differ with that background. First, the good. The book seems to be a very honest account of Geno's life - particularly his coaching career. Geno doesn't seem to pull any punches - he gives you the good and the bad about his current and former players, other coaches, and basketball in general. He also seems to do the same in evaluating himself - although at times it felt [...]


    4. Ever since I was young I always watched the UConn women's basketball games with my family. Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Tina Charles, Sue Bird, I loved them all. My current favorite player is Breanna Stewart, and that started even before her incredible run in the National Semifinals in April 2013. Now that the season is only a few days away, I decided to review my favorite book of all time. Auriemma is an incredible coach. If they are down at halftime, he knows the thing to tell them so they come [...]


    5. Growing up 20 minutes away from the UConn campus in Storrs Connecticut I have seen Geno Auriemma more than once and have grown up idolizing his players. This book gives an inside look on the magic that is UConn Women's basketball and how Geno and the girls have achieved the level of success that they have. Athletes and basketball players should praise and practice the ideas that Geno presents in this book. In addition to the advice and secrets to success this book gives a story of Geno's ups and [...]


    6. Fascinating as a biography of a highly accomplished man and a close look into how he took UConn from a backwater to the second best program in women's basketball (based on number of national championships). I somewhat changed my opinion of Geno, which had been based on hearsay. I hope someday he'll write a book giving insights into the game itself, because mouth and swagger aside, he's a brilliant coach.


    7. I grew up watching the UConn Women's Basketball success, specifically Diana Taurasi. Reading about his mentality brought to life a guy who is repeatedly characterized as an emotionless guy. His tough as nails attitude is indicative of a classical mindset, rather than a more progressive attitude. Nonetheless it illuminated his success in a personal, first hand account. He was able to offer his story uninterrupted, and it was fun to hear these stories.


    8. Book a bit all over the map, some bits repetitive. But, a great look at the methods and madness of one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time. He is exactly how he appears to be.
