Review

"Damon Agnos' A Competitor's Guide to Existence, hot off the e-presses, plumbs the cavernous depths of The Win Forever Pyramid's maxims until the book and its readers emerge out the other side of the earth, changed and bettered by their shared journey."
-McSweeney's Internet Tendency

Perhaps I am caught in the ideological maelstrom of Seahawks (i.e., Ospreys) fanfare following their Manning-whooping 43-8 Super Bowl victory, but I found Damon Agnos's musings on Pete Carroll's philosophical teachings resplendent. As one of, if not the only, contemporary Carroll academician, Agnos guides the reader through the serpentine logical passageways weaved in Carroll's eponymous, Win Forever, while broadening its scope beyond the gridiron. Forever will I start my day wanting to compete while flossing, never again skipping a day to instead get to work sooner; without cessation will I shuffle toward slumber with a quick P90X workout, as I shan't again settle for not practicing, not wanting to chase the metaphorical football the way the Descartes chased, in reverse, Carroll's Beast Modey horse. Last and far from least, it is clear that Marshawn "Beacon Plumbing" Lynch embraces Carroll's siren call to greatness: he's 'bout that action, BOSS!

The rigorous philosophical inquest we need and deserve. The wonders of the Carroll mind laid gloriously bare. Bravo, Mr. Agnos!

Damon Agnos goes where many fear to tread, delving into the depths of Pete Carroll's body of work. In so doing, he sheds light on heretofore daunting questions: Is it really possible to Win Forever? Is it just All About the Ball? What does it mean when Everything Counts? Is to Compete to Exist, or is to Exist to Compete? With these Meditations, Agnos sets the standard for others who will inevitably, and perhaps foolishly, follow him into these deep metaphysical waters.

Funny? Check. Intelligent? Check. Inspirational? Check. Even the Food Pyramid makes more sense since I read this book.

I thought the overall content was good. The humor was a bit awkward. Some of the ideas were either blown out of proportion and taken too far or just weird humor. Anyway, I LOVE the concept of competing for existence and the breakdown of Pete's philosophy was great.
