Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The author of several books about leadership, Phillips (Martin Luther King, Jr. on Leadership, etc.) offers an absorbing and practical examination of famed football coach Vince Lombardi's strategies for success and how they can be applied to the business world. A short biography of the coach gives a sense of the source of Lombardi's style his father was a strict disciplinarian who advocated respect and duty above all else. As an athlete, Lombardi, who died in 1970, was accomplished at several sports but his first love was always football. He began his coaching career under Red Blaik at West Point, where he perfected his discipline. By the end of his life, he could take credit for nine successive playoff victories and two Super Bowl triumphs. What made Lombardi so successful? Phillips answers this question with detailed anecdotes from the coach's colleagues and players, along with chapter summaries highlighting "Lombardi Principles." Among these precepts are "Demonstrate your commitment to equality through your actions as well as your words," "Expect full cooperation from your superiors, and give full cooperation in return" and "Remember that all talent is founded on fundamentals and that fundamentals win it." Though seasoned executives may find some of the insights self-evident, less experienced managers should find them useful, especially if they're already familiar with Lombardi and his unique style.

From Library Journal

The ultimate compliment paid to Vince Lombardi was by former Green Bay Packers guard Jerry Kramer: "We knew that the only difference between being a good football team and a great football team was him and only him." Phillips, an authority on leadership (see, e.g., The Founding Fathers on Leadership, LJ 1/90), does not offer a sports biography like David Maraniss's When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi (LJ 8/99). Instead, in straightforward, practical, no-nonsense prose, he clearly explains how Lombardi's coaching style can be utilized in today's business environment. The result is more useful than many such guides drawn from the philosophies or teachings of nonbusiness figures. Recommended for most libraries. Larry R.

Donald T. Phillips has taught me a few things about leadership. He showed me the unique leadership abilities of Abraham Lincoln. He demonstrated the necessary leadership of the United States' Founding Fathers. He summarized the amazing leadership influence of Martin Luther King, Jr.

And now, he's introduced me to the behind-the-scenes leadership characteristics of Vince Lombardi.

In his book, Run To Win: Vince Lombardi on Coaching and Leadership, Phillips combines biography with commentary to demonstrate the foundational impact that Vince Lombardi had on the Green Bay Packers and on professional football. Vince Lombardi is a man whom many consider to be "the greatest football coach in the history of the sport...being both a household name and an icon."

Phillips divides the book into four categories: Starting Out, Building Trust, Routine, and Character. One of the things that I love about Phillips style is that he gives great real-life content. Every chapter is full of snapshots of Lombardi's life. Phillips has really done his homework, even going as far as getting the endorsement of the daughter of Pete Rozelle, Anne Marie Rozelle Bratton and Lombardi's son, Vince Lombardi, Jr.

In the chapter titled, Sell Yourself, a Lombardi quote opens the theme (quotes are plentiful in this book, and there are always a couple of key ones at the beginning of each chapter):

"You have to sell yourself to the group. And in order to sell yourself to the group, there is no way you can be dishonest about it. Therefore, what you sell has to come from your heart, and it has to be something you really believe in.

Don Phillips has done a masterful job of writing the essesce of who Vince Lombardi was. He was a man who wanted his players to be the best that they could be and develop character. This book goes far beyond the football field and can be applied to anyone's life. I believe Mr. Phillips packed in as much information as possible in the least amount of pages. His contributions about great leaders in this and other books is invaluable and greatly appreciated.

I recently gave stock to my sons when the Green Bay Packers offered that option to the public. With the stock, I ordered several of Vince Lombardi's books for enrichment. I was not disappointed nor were my two sons. Vince Lombardi is truly a real American legend in the field of football. We particularly likes the inclusion of some of his quotes that were given within the context of his life and events. The legend himself will never be forgotten!

I have several books about Vince Lombardi and his methods as well as concepts for coaching, which apply to leadership as well. THis is another good book with good examples and lessons you can get from stories about Vince and the packers.

If you are a Packer Fan, Vince Lombardi follower, love football, looking for leadership ideas, this is a book you need to add to your library.

A good read; the chapter summaries on "the Lombardi Way" start to sound overly repetitive from the chapter text, but other than that there was some good info here. I've followed Lombardi beginning in the '60s and thought I'd heard everything there was to hear about him. This book however had several interesting insights I'd never come across before.

I grew up watching the Giants and the Packers under Lombardi. If you want to learn how to coach and you never had the chance to see Lombardi coach this book tells you what he is all about. Every high school, college and pro coach in any sport should read this book and learn from the master. When Lombardi talks it is coming from the God of football.

My husband absolutely loved the book. It was a Christmas gift. He was absolutely amazed about the quirks that Lumbardi had and the absolute power he had over many thing.The leadership, high demands and love of his fellow team mates came through in everything he did. Very good book.
