This review is from: The Score Takes Care of Itself: My Philosophy of Leadership (Kindle Edition)
Read this to find out what Stuart Lancaster, the new England rugby coach, was getting so excited about. My main conclusion is to worry about the state of his mental health. Walsh comes across as a borderline psycho whose obsession with controlling other people's lives leads him to lose control of his own. It's also badly written and 'edited' with the lightest of touches. You're almost surprised there are no spelling mistakes. But that's all reading between the lines. On the top layer of management-speak fluff there are a few interesting ideas, but more than a few contradicitions. In the opening passages he describes bawling his eyes out after a defeat in Miami. That's not exactly a question of letting the score take care of itself, and it also sits at odds with his description of being in a zen-like state during each game.

I've always had my suspicions that Leadership books are a load of old rope rushed out by $$$-hungry publishers and this is a stellar example of it. A regular autobiography of a fascinating sporting life (not mention great NFL team, truly great) would have been more rewarding for all concerned you feel.
