Ok, it is not that bad, and clearly a lot of thought has gone into it. There is some useful guidance. It is not unhelpful, by any means. My quibble with the book is that it is really a book for managers rather than for coaches. There are few drills, and the focus of the book is not on coaching at all. It is not a book that will help you to plan a season of training sessions. It tells you little about how you can try to improve and develop players. If I had browsed through this in a shop, I doubt I would have bought it.
Other books I can recommend to for essential reading after this one are "Coaching the Coach: A Complete Guide How to Coach Soccer Skills Through Drills" and "Coaching Mini Soccer: A Tried and Tested Program of Essential Skills and Drills for 5 to 10 Year Olds" (both by Richard Seedhouse) and then "Soccer Academy: 100 Defending Practices and Small Sided Games" and "The Soccer Academy: 140 Overload Games and Finishing Practices" (both by Michael Beale).
Want to know a book to avoid ? - "101 Great Youth Soccer Drills: Skills and Drills for Better Fundamental Play" by Robert Koger. The drills are really confusing, even to more experienced coaches than myself that I've shown them to.
