The only coach in college history to lead three different schools to the Final Four, Rick Pitino is a basketball icon. He is an NCAA champion and a bestselling author, but Pitino's journey has not been without life-altering adversity, including the devastating loss of his infant son, Daniel, and the death of his brother-in-law and best friend in the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11.
In his new book, Pitino is more deeply personal, more inspiring, more practical, and more powerful than ever before. More than a comeback story, Rebound Rules is a manual for overcoming life's difficulties and resetting your worldview for a fresh start, written by one of the sporting world's most innovative and dynamic leaders.
