5.0 out of 5 stars Very Detailed
I thought this book had everything. It showed how you have to put team over player how to get the team together by having a common enemy. There are stories of things that happened in Rinus Michels' career to associate to whatever aspect of team building he was talking about. It also had training drills, which I found difficult to understand due to the lack of diaframs...

3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing ramblings of a once great coach
Hmm...so I bought this book after reading some positive reviews and was rather dissapointed. If anyone else had written this book then perhaps the euphoria would not have been present for the reviewers...

The book tends to drag on and a lot of it is Rinus reminicing of his managerial career and how well he did with his teams, but not so much on how or why...

There are stories of things that happened in Rinus Michels' career to associate to whatever aspect of team building he was talking about. It also had training drills, which I found difficult to understand due to the lack of diaframs (Though I felt it was the only downside to a great book). It also talks through tactics and the three fnuctions of a team. Very good book

The book tends to drag on and a lot of it is Rinus reminicing of his managerial career and how well he did with his teams, but not so much on how or why things went wrong for him when he wasnt so succesful.

If you are looking to buy this book to make you a better coach and to help you build your team then DONT! Its better to use google to search for something specific. There is a LOT of litreature out there now and I wish I had done that instead of spending money on this book.

If you are looking to buy this book simply to study a great managers thoughts then go ahead as thats what I would recommend.

This review is from: Teambuilding: the road to success (Paperback)
This book is a heavy read at times (worth using a notepad), but it is packed with useful info for the softer skills of coaching as well as giving us Michels' insights and experiences. Highly recommended.

No book like it... 30 years of experience at the top football put into a well structured book, what more could anybody want.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Rinus Michels...!, 1 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anything Michels says - whether you agree with it or not, is a point worth arguing! Some of the content is general c.sense, but he clearly explains the main issues. The man is a genius, just buy it and get inside one of the greatest ever manager's minds
