I appreciate the absolute candor and honesty, albeit, sometimes just as painful (from the heart) to read. But you have to read it to fully appreciate what is being shared. To reach the conclusions he has come to, were found through pain and despair. An aha moment that lead him down a forward path, and teachable moments.
This book IS NOT for the first time coach, it is for ALL coaches especially for those with the win at all cost attitudes. It is a book about redefining the relationship between Coaches and young Athletes. It is about why you coach. It is a challenge to you to ask yourself, why?
It is a challenge to you to be a selfless Coach, to be a teacher of good character. Your job as a coach goes beyond just winning a game, your job as a coach is to help create healthy adults. Some would say, that is not my job. But if these kids are your responsibility for any time, 1,2,3 hours per week, yes it is your job.
I am not going to say that I agree with everything Joe says and that this book is now a core strategy for me. But much like the The Matheny Manifesto: A Young Manager's Old-School Views on Success in Sports and Life, there is a great deal that I can take away from this book. 2 different people, 2 different upbringings, arriving at some of the same conclusions.
Both great books for different reasons, and I highly recommend them both. If you are looking for books that tell you how to dictate sports on the field, these books are not for you. If you are looking for personal growth as a coach, these books are for you.
