Format: Hardcover
Coach Assaiante's story is truly inspirational and his original leadership approach provides lessons for all. His amazing run at Trinity will likely never be matched. The book is a fast-paced read and the excitement of the match against Princeton kept me on the edge of my seat. Highly recommended to anyone looking for tips on effective leadership or just interested in one of the most exciting sports stories in recent times.

Live for the day & take the time to enjoy the journey. The result may count but im the big picture mean so little. This is a living life & doing good deads. I do not play squash & received this really great & very engrossing read that virtually no one will not truely enjoy. For my money this one of the greatest & insightful of all the sports books ever written & I have read many of them.

Format: Hardcover
This well written book tells the compelling story of the perks and perils of persistence and dedication to victory. It is an inspirational read that also compels introspection and a great respect and appreciation for the sacrifices made by every person who acheives success. The running tally of matches and victories adds an engaging tension to the story throughout and into the epilogue...

Another great book from J.W. Zug.

I thought that there would be more instructive than it really is. Maybe I'm too literal but there are only so many ways to say "know your players" and "find what motivates them" ...

Format: Paperback
Knowing Paul personally as his representative as a speaker, he shares not just his lessons as a squash coach, but lessons as a life coach. He is one of the most humble and inspiring people I know. Great coach, great man, great speaker.
