Coach Dean Smith and business guru Jerry Bell will sign copies of their new book The Carolina Way:Leadership Lessons from a Life in Coaching.

In every sport there are coaches whose names are synonymous with winning, and Dean Smith is, almost without peer, the most successful coach in college basketball history, as well as one of the most beloved.

In The Carolina Way, Coach Smith, in his wise and incomparable manner, explains the coaching philosophy that's made him legendary, and demonstrates how to apply it to the leadership and team-building challenges in our own lives. Drawing on the same three goals he's taught all of his teams - 1)
play together, 2) play hard, and 3) play smart. Smith outlines a business leadership program with a prove track: during his tenure alone, the UNC teams had a record of 879-254, a winning percentage of .776 victories account for the most held by any coach in college basketball history; and his Carolina teams won or shared a record seventeen ACC tournament championships. Bringing his proven "Carolina Way" to the broader business world, Smith's three-point plan is illustrated with perspectives from many
former players, as well as an in-depth "Business Perspective" developed with leadership specialist Gerald Bell.
