Format: Paperback
For me, to read a book in under 4 days says a lot about making the journey from cover to cover!

This book is about a "2012 Olympians" style journey for a Coach and 4 competitors, and how Coach opens the minds of the competitors to reveal to themselves their innate wisdom. It is a journey about how these four different archetypical characters - Would've, Could've, Should've and Did, discover how to dedicate themselves and their focus to competing and living at the most optimal level.

It's well thought out and crafted, and chronicles how - through applying elements of sports and mainstream performance psychology - people can develop and evolve towards goals over a period of time. It succeeds by revealing everything from the practical, end user's perspective, and the Coach and his 4 athletes quickly become genuine and endearing characters.

It's makes for a great and yet quite down to earth inspirational read.

Format: Paperback
Really enjoyed this book by Steve Backley. The lessons or '12 Rules' are easy to understand and clearly illustrated by the short stories along the journey. Although it's about athletes/sport, the lessons you learn from Steve Backley are for success in all areas of life. Highly recommended, very inspirational and motivating.

This is a good feeling story with plenty of tips to try and put in place for success, not just for athletes. The characters progressed through the book when following Coach's Rules, which makes it more believable for the reader to follow the tips.
I wasnt too keen on the style, perhaps because its something I'm not used to, but was an easy enjoyable read anyway.

It's a bit of an odd one, a fictional self help book is completely new to me. I'd recommend it for a light motivational read, it would be ideal for teenagers!

I heard Steve Backley talking about this book on Radio 5 live which got my attention. The concepts in the book I think are good and I agree with the basic ideas in there. However the 4 main characters, 'could've, should've, would've and did' made the book difficult to follow for me. So all up good concepts but not the easiest read. Read for personal improvement not enjoyment.

wow what a great tool 28 Jun 2014
By platisimo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a must read for any athlete or parent of an athlete. Being a father of one, this book basically helps any parent, mentor, and coach get across the fundamental principals of how important mental toughness is. Have them read it or read it yourself and it'll help you get the message across. A wonderful story that teaches lessons that anyone can apply to their lives, athlete or otherwise.
