4.0 out of 5 stars Vital and comprehensive 9 Mar. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A cross-section of successful coaches hvae been asked to write specific chapters. An even better approach would have been for ALL to have contributed across the board. One for every coach all the same; I got this to support my UKCC/ASA senior club coach certificate. I have the book so may buy the e-book too so that I have it poolside on my Kindle.
