Life Is Yours to Win: Lessons Forged from the Purpose, Passion, and Magic of Baseball : Now in paperback, the winningest college baseball coach of all time shares his powerful philosophy on life and sports.

Augie Garrido has led his University of Texas and Cal State baseball teams to more victories than any coach in any sport in NCAA history, and he has won more National Coach of the Year awards than any other college coach. But Garrido is no “win at all costs” type of leader; rather, he espouses a thinking person’s management style that focuses on building men of quality, whatever their abilities on the diamond. This extraordinary book culls his profoundly effective approach to life into a book that can inspire anyone.

Based on the author’s journey of self-discovery, during which he moved from being driven by fear to being motivated by passion, Life Is Yours to Win presents a very hands-on and effective plan for self-improvement. Garrido explains how to remove fears, live each day with joy and passion, establish personal principles, and appreciate the value of failure in teaching lifelong lessons. What emerges is a refreshingly Zen-like approach to seizing life’s opportunities that emphasizes courage, living in the moment, and understanding that trophies are not the real goal. Filled with interesting, compelling stories from on and off the field, Life Is Yours to Win appeals to anyone, sports fan or not, who appreciates the wisdom of what it really means to be a winner.
