Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pete Carroll is one of my favorite figures in America. He's the classic example of the fact that you don't have to be miserable to be a champion. You can actually have fun and make it fun."
-President Bill Clinton

"Pete Carroll presents great advice on how to be a winner in life. The twist is that the key is to focus on the process, not the outcome, and to compete hard in every way on your journey. It has certainly worked for Pete, who is a winner in so many ways, and it can work for anybody in all different aspects of life."
-NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

"During his time at USC Pete Carroll raised the bar in college football coaching with 7 straight BCS appearances, but as you'll read in Win Forever, his ultra competitive spirit and infectious energetic attitude have been the foundation to his many successes both on and off the field."
-Kirk Herbstreit, analyst for ESPN's College GameDay

"Coach Carroll is the fiercest competitor I know. Not only as a coach, but as a mentor and more importantly, a friend. That mentality allowed me to enter the NFL with the tools necessary for the highest level of competition. Furthermore, those traits transcended off the field and will offer a competitive edge for anyone who reads his book."
-Mark Sanchez

"Win Forever-it's not about wins and losses, it's about the competition within Pete's life. Reading his book, it's evident that he has a clear understanding that his job is more about creating an environment and foundation for young men that can better who they are every day on and off the field."
-Mia Hamm

"What impressed me about Pete is his contagious, positive approach and that his talents go far beyond what makes a great football coach. His philosophy of helping everyone be the best they can be makes sense in all aspects of everyday life. This will help everyone in our organization and will play a big part in defining the Seahawks' mindset and philosophy as we move forward."
-Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen

"If this book were just about football, it would be interesting but not compelling. Coach Carroll has something to say of importance to all of us who want to discover our potential as human beings. That he can win football games is beyond doubt, but that he can win over doubt itself is something special."
-Tim Gallwey, author of The Inner Game of Tennis, The Inner Game of Work, and The Inner Game of Stress

"Coach Carroll is one of the finest teachers in all of sport and one who I respect immensely. I'm just glad that he is now coaching in the NFL and not for our archrival anymore."
-John R. Wooden

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!

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.

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

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.

The current success of the Seattle Seahawks will no doubt mean that this book will be widely read and it should be. It is interesting to learn Coach Carroll's philosophy and then to watch how he appears to apply his philosophy in his daily routine with his organization. Many members of the print and electronic media would do well to read this so that they won't ask so many of the same questions over and over, allowing them to get on to more interesting things. Sure, each reporter is trying to get his or her own personal quote from the Coach, but when six reporters at one news conference ask essentially the same question (which the Coach patiently answers the same way each time) their lack of background study is too obvious! The book reads like a talk, so it may be that it was dictated.

In Win Forever: Live, Work, and Play Like a Champion, Coach Carroll presents his own personal philosophy on life, the game of football, and how to win forever. This book is a must read for anyone looking to 'take it to the next level'.
