Kentucky coach John Calipari wants to reveal some of his trade secrets to you.
On Thursday, he announced that his new book, “Success is the Only Option: The Art of Coaching Extreme Talent,” is set to come out Nov. 15. It’s billed as a book that “goes in depth in explaining his team-building methods in ways that apply to CEOs, business owners, coaches, teachers and leaders of all kinds.”

“I’m asked all the time, ‘How in the world are you pulling this off? How in the world do you get such talented kids – not just one or two, but an entire team of elite talent – to come together and play for one another?’ Well, this is that story,” Calipari said. “I wanted to tell our story of how we get the most out of elite talent.”
Of course, gaining that elite talent in the first place goes a long way toward making a coach look good. Calipari has plenty of critics, so some of this could make his skeptics roll their eyes.
Still, it’s likely that Calipari, who has written four previous books, will find an audience for this message.
