This review is from: Soccer Brain: The 4C Coaching Model for Developing World Class Player Mindsets and a Winning Football Team (Paperback)
This book will transform the way most coaches actually coach. It details subjects that most coaching books don't even touch on. Dan has expertly articulated how areas of psychology can help get the most out of your players. Not just the star players, but every single one of your squad.
It's very well written, and contains clear, real-life examples to back up the theory. It's one of them books that has leaves wanting to read just one more page - I can't think of many coaching books that have done that!
The modern day coach needs more than drills, tactical nous, and game know-how. In an age where the focus on grassroots development is so high-profile, a coach should be constantly looking for ways to improve their players. This book, being unique in its subject matter relating to football, gives so many techniques and tips on how to extract the most out of every individual squad member. The insight you'll get about Klopp and Mourinho will help you to understand how they've gained their success. And the best bit is that their techniques are explained ready for you to try on your own team.
Overall, this is a fantastic book. It really opened my eyes to many things I'd taken for granted. Being a coach is not just about technique, it's about people. Real people with real feelings. Get the most out of them with this book.
