On the Right Path Scores with New Book

Teaching valuable life lessons continues with On the Right Path Book Two written by former Houston Rockets coach Brett Gunning.

The second book in the On the Right Path series continues to spread life lessons on the basketball court.

Written by former Houston Rockets coach Brett Gunning, the On the Right Path (OTRP) series teaches valuable life lessons through basketball. The children’s book is co-written by award-winning author Stacy Padula and illustrated by Maddy Moore.

Book 2 focuses on the importance of being unselfish, whether that be in basketball or life. Six life-skill pillars are addressed throughout the On the Right Path book series: loving others, being unselfish, staying healthy and strong, showing respect, forgiveness, and having fun.

“The On the Right Path book series is a slam dunk! The stories are rich with important lessons that kids will enjoy reading. It belongs in every home,” said former NBA coach Mike D’Antoni.

Gunning spent the last 26 years coaching in college and the NBA. He began his career in 1994 as an assistant coach for Jay Wright at Hofstra University. Gunning’s NBA career began when he joined the Houston Rockets in 2008 as the team’s director of player development and later became an assistant coach.

He launched the non-profit organization, On the Right Path, in 2020, with the mission of guiding youth basketball players on the right path to achieving their maximum potential through education, mentorship, and skill development.

“The On the Right Path book series is one that should be read in every household. The life lessons shared through entertaining stories of basketball and faith are invaluable to young minds,” said Joel Osteen, Pastor of Lakewood Church.

On the Right Path books are available for sale on Amazon.
