Not only was John Wooden a great basketball coach, he was a master teacher. In fact, he was a great coach because he was a master teacher. What Wooden has learned from others in the classroom and perfected on the practice court are fundamental principles of effective teaching, which are conveyed in You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned: John Wooden's Teaching Principles and Practices. Co-author Swen Nater, one of Wooden's former players at UCLA, provides insightful first-hand accounts on the many life lessons he learned from Wooden that he has applied to his life since becoming a teacher himself. These principles have a timeless and universal quality, applicable to all teaching situations: the classroom, the home, the workplace, and everywhere that a person has the responsibility for helping others learn and excel. Wooden's principles conveyed by Nater and co-author Ronald Gallimore in You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learnedcan be studied and applied by teachers, coaches, parents, and anyone else who is responsible for, works with, or supervises others.

Forewords written by Bill Walton, a former All-American at UCLA and 1993 inductee of the Basketball Hall of Fame, and Jim Sinegal, CEO of Costco Wholesale.

Praise for You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned:

"You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned does a great job of intertwining Swen's experiences with the teaching of Coach Wooden on the hardwood, the classroom, and in life. I think the connection between teaching and coaching is right on, as they are both the same. I would recommend this book to teachers, coaches, parents, business executives, and anybody that would want to be more organized and understand how to pay more attention to effort and detail." - Ann Meyers Drysdale, Basketball Hall of Famer and ESPN women's basketball analyst

"This book wows the mind and gives us a new and different perspective on Coach Wooden as a teacher. What this book gives us is a useful and interesting case study of Wooden the teacher. It should be read by anyone who is a teacher, which, as Wooden reminds us, is all of us." -James Stigler & Jim Hiebert, authors of The Teaching Gap

"Whether you're an educator, business entrepreneur, serving in a professional field, community leader, or simply possess a desire to be more effective in organization and leadership, You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned has captured the secrets of Coach John Wooden's strategies. The teaching principles and practices can be converted from the classroom and the basketball court to self-improvement and improved effectiveness." - Roger Dickinson, executive director, Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame
