Former LSU Men's Basketball Coach Dale Brown to Sign New Motivational Book on Campus Before LSU-Arkansas Football Game

BATON ROUGE – Former LSU men's basketball coach Dale Brown will be on campus Friday, Nov. 25, to sign his newly released motivational book, "Getting Over the Four Hurdles of Life."


The signing will take place at the LSU Bookstore in the LSU Student Union from 10 a.m. until noon, just before the football team's game against Arkansas.


Brown, who coached the Tigers from 1972 to 1997, is widely recognized as one of the top motivational speakers in the United States. He is also well known as the recruiter and college coach of former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal.


Brown's book is being billed as "one of the strongest, most inspiring works since Dr. Norman Vincent Peale published 'The Power of Positive Thinking' in 1952."


The book identifies some of the main obstacles, or hurdles, that block the path to success, happiness and fulfillment. It prescribes ways of dealing with and overcoming these obstacles.


Brown illustrates his key points by telling inspiring stories of people who emerged victorious though the deck seemed to be stacked against them. For instance, Albert Einstein, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, Shaquille O'Neal, Pete Maravich and J.K. Rowling.


With these stories, there are examples to follow to help to get over the vexing hurdles that obstruct the path to fuller, more satisfying lives.


For more information on the book signing, contact the LSU Bookstore at 225-578-5137.
