I bought this book in regards, to learning some new lessons about various sports I will be teaching in high school physical education class. This would not be the book for me to use. I had in mind that this book would break down the book by sport units and also add in lesson plans. It did not add in lesson plans. This would be a great book for an advanced coach teaching and breaking down the individual sport thoroughly to help train the student.
