This book along with The Score Takes Care of Itself by Bill Walsh are the two top coaching and leadership books I've read. This book shows you how to breed competition within your own setting and still have things be fun. Coach Carrol encourages the reader to come up with their own philosophy of 25 words or less. This exercise truly helps you understand yourself as a coach and a competitor. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Been a coach for 18 years. This has forced me to reevaluate myself. Great read. I became a better coach today.

I was so taken by this past weekend's quotes from Seattle's players after the Super Bowl that I had to read this. Clearly, Pete Carroll has made an impact on his teams and those he's come in contact with. Anyone interested in true leadership should read this book.

Having been a season ticket holder for the Seahawks for a decade, and watching the amazing turn around orchestrated by the club following the hiring of Pete Carroll, I decided to read the book. As a business leader and former Army officer, I enjoy reading books on leadership and motivation - but all too often find them either pedantic or repetitive. This book is a wonderful exception to that general rule.

Carroll takes the reader through the early part of his career, outlining the successes and failures that ultimately led to the development of his Win Forever philosophy. More important than the adaptation of his philosophy, or "Always Compete" mantra was the resonance with the message that each of us is called to develop our own personal philosophy - in 25 words or less. Carroll relays a story where, in a session with 20-plus senior Army officers, NONE of them had a personal philosophy that they could articulate in 25 words or less.

Carroll's lead up reinforces the notion that the philosophy need not be developed, only articulated. He points out that he has lived this philosophy since he was a boy - but only after his New England coaching experience was he able to concisely articulate it and therefore live it.

Reading the book inspired me to take the challenge to look within and articulate the philosophy and then live by it.

An excellent book articulating Pete Carroll's philosophies that can be used in sport and everyday life.
Up lifting and asks the reader to understand themselves and have a vision.

While I like Pete as a coach, and have had the opportunity to hear him talk in person, the book left me wanting a little deeper on his philosophy. He talks a lot about certain players and events that happened in his career, especially after putting his philosophy in place, and these re-enforce his methods, but given that it is a way of approaching things I expected a little less of "Look what it did for me" and a little more of how he see's his philosophy transitioning to a work environment, or coaching youth, or some other aspects of life.
