Rebound Rules: The Art of Success 2.0 (Paperback)
“Rick Pitino knows a thing or two about comebacks—on the court and in life.”
Basketball legend Rick Pitino reveals his model of success built upon his experiences of failure and personal loss in Rebound Rules—a powerful, deeply personal book about never giving up. Recalling the tragedies that shaped his life and career—his unsuccessful tenure as Celtics coach, the devastating loss on 9/11 of his best friend and his brother-in-law and the deep depression that followed—Coach Pitino shares his Rebound Rules, demonstrating how he emerged wiser and rose to new heights with a richer perspective on life and work…and how you can, too.
Rick Pitino is the head coach at the University of Louisville. He won the NCAA Championship in 1996 with Kentucky and has won the SEC Tournament Championship five times. He lives in Louisville, Kentucky.
