"Bacon had the great fortune to sit down with Bo and hear story after story, lesson after lesson. Read this book and you'll feel like you were there. Outstanding!" -- Dan Dierdorf, College and NFL Hall of Famer, NFL on CBS Analyst
"Bo's persona fairly crackles on the pages of Bacon's book. Good stuff from a good man who also happened to be a pretty darn good football coach. A classic." -- Keith Jackson, Hall of Fame Broadcaster, ABC Sports
"Having spent many days with Bo, I can tell you few men inspired others to be their best the way he did. A player once made the same mistake over and over in practice, he admitted, just to hear Bo yell at him. His athletes said they'd follow him to the ends of the earth, but beyond this world, even with his passing, Bo's words still inspire those who remember him. His voice was that strong. This book is a fine connection to that voice, which embodied, every day, true leadership." -- MITCH ALBOM, author and columnist
"If you knew Bo personally, this book is a chance to spend one more unforgettable day with him. If you didn't, you'll see some sides of him you might have missed from a distance: his humor, his compassion, even - dare I say it - his sensitivity. Make no mistake, though: Bo's leadership lessons are no-nonsense, straightforward - and incredibly effective." -- John Robinson, former Head Coach, USC Trojans and LA Rams
"In an era of corporate coaches who might as well be accountants, Bo's throaty growl and gruff but loving style are sorely missed. There is nothing superficial about Bo's basic philosophy of life and leadership - and his lessons are truly timeless." -- David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize winner and best-selling author of When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi
