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!!

As others have already stated, you don't need to be a sports fan to enjoy this book - I even sent it to my mother who has already raised three children and isn't a sports fan and she loved it. Beyond the inspirational quotes, the author provides some really fundamental advice on parenting that we sometimes lose sight of in the day to day tasks of child rearing. Reminders of our responsibilities as parents and maintaining a positive perspective as we coach our children through life. Great concept! Keep it in the bathroom, keep it by the bedside!

The author did a really good job of taking sports quotes from the coaches and shwoing us how they apply to family relationships.
