Like the philosopher kings of ancient times, these six coaches shared a common wisdom, vision, and commitment. They believed a valiantly fought defeat is better than a poorly played victory. In Beyond Winning: The Timeless Wisdom of Great Philosopher Coaches, Gary Walton reveals the thoughts and teachings that made these legendary coaches successful—in sport and life. You'll get an intimate look at how each coach followed a different path in his pursuit of excellence.

"Winning three consecutive NFL championships under Lombardi at Green Bay left me feeling we had set a mark for future teams to shoot at. Doc Counsilman's six consecutive NCAA swimming championships and John Wooden's seven consecutive NCAA basketball championships may be marks never again equaled. Think about it. None of these records occurred haphazardly. Beyond Winning shares the philosophy, the principles, the winning minds of these and other great coaches. It's a book you will return to again and again."
Jerry Kramer Coauthor of Distant Replay and former Green Bay Packer
"As a fellow coach, I give Beyond Winning the highest possible endorsement."
Bill Walsh Former Head Coach, San Francisco 49ers
"Gary Walton sets forth athletics as a great learning and testing experience, and coaches as among the best of all teachers. . . . Throughout my life I have often observed, in the words of St. Jerome, that 'athletes as a rule are stronger'—this applies particularly to successful athletes. Gary Walton tells why."
Clark Kerr, President Emeritus University of California, Berkeley
"A primer on what it takes to be a winner on and off the athletic field. Gary Walton has captured the philosophy and motivational techniques of the world's finest coaches."
Don Bowden First American to break a 4-minute mileAbout the Author:
Dividing time between athletics and academics is nothing new to Gary Walton—he's been doing it since he was a freshman at the University of California at Berkeley. At that time, he was influenced by the legendary track coach Brutus Hamilton, whose philosophy emphasized athletics as part of personal development.
Dr. Walton continues to live by this philosophy at the University of California at Davis where he is professor and coach. In addition to being the founding dean of the university's School of Management, he is president of The Foundation for Teaching Economics, a professor of economics and management, and an assistant coach for the university's track team. Dr. Walton received his doctorate in economics from the University of Washington and has authored and coauthored eight books in economics and American economic history.
Dr. Walton's duties on the track include coaching middle-distance and distance runners. He is also a devoted runner himself. As for his coaching philosophy, Dr. Walton emphasizes dedication and hard work, preferring that runners achieve their personal best rather than worry about getting their names in the record books.
