This review is from: Sir Walter Winterbottom: The Father of Modern English Football (Hardcover)
This book achieves something rare. It actually inspires you to go and do things. Like the great coach Walter Winterbottom himself, it somehow encourages you to have more faith in yourself. It is lovingly compiled, straightforward and honest and for those qualities it is the most valuable representation of and the most authentic tribute to a very special man. In our modern world measured by material success, this story is about succeeding in becoming of value by having a value for others. Walter Winterbottom set such a wonderful example and pattern to follow that he is truly an archetype, but at the same time like all great figures in history, he stands quietly apart, absolutely unique.
