Dad's Playbook isn't just for Dads. It is a "must read" for all managers, especially those that manage in a blue-collar environment. All too often it is the lack of "positive coaching" that causes disdain and diminished productivity in our workforce. I am an HR Manager, raised by a father that mentored and motivated me all of my life......I don't get football (and don't really care to) but I get Tom Limbert's message. Tom, I hope that you sell millions of books and that every person that buys or receives Dad's Playbook, reads it and learns from it. Surely, the world would be a better place.

This is a great book for new fathers,parents and teachers of all sorts.
Tom does a stellar job using classic quotes from " all time greats" in the world of sports to emphasize positive motivation techniques and good common sense in how to encourage children and adults in a variety of settings. Whether its in sports , school or just daily life Tom Limbert has sound advice for staying postive , limit setting and having mutual respect for one another. As a father to a ever challenging 3 year old and basketball coach, Toms book has provided me with great advice for controlling my emotion in a positve way which has translated to postive performances from my players and a more enjoyable interaction with my son. Thanks Tom!!

Bought this thinking it would be more substantial than it was. It turned out to just be a picture book with small quotes on one page and a picture of the coach on the other.

I have to admit that I am not a big fan of reading. Truth be told prior to Dad's Playbook I hadn't picked up a book in some time. This was suggested by a friend and since I am big fan of quotations and sports I thought I would give it a try. Flat out this is an easy to read, fun, inspirational book that I find not only useful in my most difficult job as a father but it also provides general common sense lessons on how to teach, influence and engage people of any age and in any situation be it personal or professional in nature. I would suggest this to any parent and anyone who needs to manage people in any way. It is a book that you and your family will cherish for generations and you will continue to consult for advice. The most successful coaches have the skill to influence their teams in a positive way to be the best they can be. Tom Limbert has provided a glimpse into the psyche of these sports legends and in turn provides us with a playbook on how we can manage and influence in a positive way as well. I highly recommend Dad's Playbook!

This is an excellent book full of inspirational passages as well as witty quotes from famous athletes and coaches. It is full of wisdom with an entertaining twist.
The author hits many highlights, each chapter covering key points that we need to teach our children....things that will be with them forever.

"You decide what kind of values to instill, which goals to set, and how to go about reaching those goals. You have a tremendous impact on your family.
Through your example, every day you show your children how to treat each other, how to handle adversity. and how to get things done." Limbert writes.

I highly recommend Dad's Playbook to everyone..moms and dads alike. It will make the perfect fathers day gift this year to the special dad's in my life.
My husband and father will love all the quotes - and the passage from Steve Young (as well as the mentoring the book provides of course.)

Get this book, you'll be glad you did.
