Joe Ehrmann has written a great book that explores the deep and rich rewards of playing (and coaching) sports. As a long-time player, coach, and teacher (and now Episcopal Priest), I found this book to be extremely thought-provoking and important as we seek to find ways to help our young people grow in our changing world. I highly recommend this great book and will be suggesting it to many friends in coming days. Thank you!

I thought I would read one more book on "how to coach little Johnny" to become a super star. This book helps all of us teach Johnny and Jane what real "winning" looks like. It is a LEADERSHIP book as well taught as any Jack Welsh has written. In fact every leader in the USA should read this book. I have bought some and will give them to all the leaders, coaches and business owners I know. This book is a road map built on INTEGRITY, personal growth and pure motivations for coaches and leaders to understand a call for a higher understanding of what winning should and can be. I applaud Mr. Ehrmann for his honesty and his vision for our youth. As a woman, I applaud his heart and his unbreakable fortitude. I picked it up and could not put it down....

If you liked Season of Life, you are going to love InSideOut Coaching! Quite simply, it provides a framework to better understand Joe's approach, but it also provides tools for implementing that approach. For instance, Joe writes about one of his coaches who would say to his team: "DIG...DIG...DIG..." It was not "dig in" that he was referring to, but instead, he was referring to the importance of Dignity, Integrity, and Grace on the athletic field and in life. Not only do I plan to talk to the kids I coach and their parents about DIG, but I am taking the same concept into my workplace to lead by example using this framework. This is just one example of many in the book that will help you deepen your understanding of the concepts discussed in Season of Life, but more importantly, you will learn how to immediately incorporate those concepts into your life.

I have just finished Joe's book, "Insideout Coaching", and it is an affirmation of my beliefs in sports. I always questioned my ideas and thoughts, I have worked with coaches that believe that sports is a way to teach boys to be "men". I have worked with coaches that scream, belittle, and mentally beat up players. I have had principals and assistant coaches who thought I put the time in, but I didn't want to win enough. I wasn't hard enough. That being said, I have a lot improvement in the area of holding kids accountable, but I refuse to do it by yelling and screaming demeaning things at them. I have a lot to learn about dealing with under achievers, but I have always believed yelling and punishing is not the most productive way to get them to do things I want them to do. I want to teach them to do things the right way, because it is the right way.

Thank you for the message, and I find myself inspired to coach and teach. I want to have relationships with my students, players, and others involved in my life.

The journey from a transactional coach to a transformational coach can be long and have many turns, the key is to be on the path. Joe Ehrmann has been a personal mentor to thousands over the past decade through his speeches and coaching. I am thankful to have had several great interactions with him in that span and have always wanted him to write a book. Now not only has he written a book, he has given us all a view into his soul and we can only become more inspired to live up to the goal of being a transformational mentor to any and all people we meet. Be you a boss, an employee, a player, or a coach, being others focused is a way of life. When you take up this cause, I imagine Joe saying, "Welcome to the Team!".

Firstly, I would like to thank the author for book. There are many good snippets of information strewn throughout.
I appreciate that the author is willing to reveal his personal struggles with the reader.

There are quite a few gripes I have with this book and the authors intention.
The author does way too much preaching and there is a lot of repetition.
The book doesn't flow very well. In the first 2 chapters the author gives the reader some good background information about himself. Quite candid and revealing, but after that the book takes an endless tailspin until the reader decides it is better to jump out because to stay would be far worse. I got up to page 150, then skimmed to the end, where it gets really weird.
The irony of calling out a bully coach in chapter 3 and then ranting from the pulpit in chapter 4 is not lost on this reader and many others I suspect.
Actually, irony and ranting abound in this book which I find a little sad as the author tells us he is a nice guy that understands people and cares about their feelings. Obviously not enough to prevent him from ranting at us.
The chapters at the end regarding ceremony belong in some ancient manuscript, they are out of place in today's world. For example a "hero ceremony".
The author speaks to the reader as though they were a very small dog from a foreign country. He also believes that we have no idea what liberty, courage, leadership etc. mean, which I found quite patronising.
The author has also read a lot of books and lets the reader know it. He believes he has grasped the essence of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, but doesn't take an idea like Plato's definition of learning, and expand on it. He simply repeats what he has read from his books.
