Bob's Book Reviews: Danny Manning's favorite book

Posted June 17, 2015

— Author and book reviewer Bob Cairns caught up with Wake Forest University men's head basketball coach Danny Manning. He was a two-time All-American at the University of Kansas and named Big Eight Player of the Decade. He was drafted as the NBA’s first overall pick in 1988 and enjoyed 15 distinguished seasons in the NBA. Cairns asked Manning what his favorite older books is. Here's what he had to say:

"The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon made a very positive impression on me. No matter what your goals are in life, it is important to attack them with positive energy. This is a book that gets you in the right frame of mind by presenting 10 rules to follow that will help you reach all of your goals.”

Bob Cairns runs the site "Page Turners from the Past," a website devoted to bringing readers reviews of older books that deserve a good dusting off! His reviews are featured once a month on WRAL.com.
