5.0 out of 5 stars Claudio and Mike nailed it, May 12, 2004

This review is from: More Than Goals:From Backyard Games to World Cup Competition (Paperback)
Tired of typical linear, from-youth-to-star books? Unsatisfied with "how-to" drills? If so, this is the perfect antidote.
Claudio's story as a genuine American soccer hero is a special one -- and he tells it in an engaging, exciting way. With the help of talented soccer journalist Mike Woitalla, Claudio weaves various parts of his career with thoughts on the state of American soccer today. Using his father (his first coach) as an example, Claudio describes his view of American soccer -- the ideal, and the reality.
The book can be read and enjoyed by many audiences: young players seeking inspiration; coaches looking for tips on how to teach and motivate, and soccer fans hoping for an inside view of a true American hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much More Than A How-To, April 26, 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: More Than Goals:From Backyard Games to World Cup Competition (Paperback)
The U.S.'s greatest soccer star, Claudio Reyna, has always put more effort in his game than most players, and he does the same thing in this book. Instead of simply writing an autobiography, or an instruction manual, he does both in More Than Goals. And he does it with great style too, using his own personal experiences to illustrate the general principles and techniques that have made him one of the world's premiere players. If you're a fan who wants to know more about Claudio, or a player who wants to learn how to take your game to the next level, this book is for you...

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of sound advice for coaches and players, October 2, 2010
This review is from: More Than Goals:From Backyard Games to World Cup Competition (Paperback)
I wasn't as interested in the details of Claudio's professional career as the work he put in during his formative years - the things he did as a kid that made him successful as an adult. Lot's of good advice about how to practice and the importance of passing. Should be required reading for soccer coaches in the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars Praise for More Than Goals, May 23, 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: More Than Goals:From Backyard Games to World Cup Competition (Paperback)
"As one of the most gifted players in U.S. soccer history and national team captain, Claudio Reyna has helped the team to be more successful and competitive internationally. Through his professional experiences in Germany, Scotland, and England, he's become a great pro and a wonderful student of the game. More Than Goals is a special look at what motivates this great player and how he's developed his skills. I highly recommend this book to all soccer enthusiasts."
Bruce Arena
U.S. National Team Coach and Technical Director
"When Claudio's on the field, teammates know he's going to get them the ball and that he'll help them to play better. More Than Goals gives insights into becoming that kind of player."
Landon Donovan
2002 and 2003 U.S. Player of the Year
