This latest edition of the Alan Hargreaves and Richard Bate manual is the most professionally presented I've seen. The print is colour and glossy, diagrams and tables are crystal clear, and the information is organised in clear defined units.

Part 1: Preparing the Coach, gives information and advice on how to coach football players and clubs.

Part 2: Skills and Techniques, analyses eight distinct areas, starting from the basics.

Part 3: Tactics and Teamwork, discusses the Principles of Play, and different formations, and set prices.

Part 4: Team Management, covers the role of the manager/coach with a team, and also discusses physical fitness.

Although I would suggest the information in here is relatively basic, there is no doubt that certain sections would be useful to any coach, especially the Principles of Play chapter. All the key tecniques are listed and explained in great detail. There are numerous drills and training games described and illustrated. Perfect for coaching youth/junior football.

In summary: A highly useful manual, well presented, clear concise ideas, aimed at youth/amateur football. This surely must be the benchmark manual for all youth coaching.

I bought this book and used it really for the 'advice' rather than the drills/excersizes. I have since loaned it to my level 1 coach/assistant and she is picking up a lot from it.

It has great colourful pages and they really put some effort into this book. I would recommend to all new coaches, but experienced coaches could find better.

Each section is broken down by activity type and then by difficulty. There is a great contents section to help you find what you need.

The advise is good also, such as dealing with kids/parents etc

My husband, Alan Hargreaves, and his friend Dick Bate are the co-authors of this second edition - so you may consider that this review is biased!

That said, the first edition you published in 1990 was a "best seller" and the revised version, which was your idea, is so much better both in content and presentation (full colour).

We are delighted with it and also the manner in which Human Kinetics has marketed the book - keep up the good work.

Regards

Janet Hargreaves.

Superb practical book by Alan Hargrewaves, and Dick Bate on Coaching Soccer. I remember Dick being the North West Regional Football Development Coach. He did a brilliant job up here. This book is highly recommended to all coaches, and those with an interest in it.
