3.0 out of 5 stars It's Decent, But Not Really About "Game Intelligence", March 23, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Developing Game Intelligence in Soccer (Paperback)
I was fooled by the preview of this book. I was looking for a that would help me develop my players' awareness, quick thought processes, and understanding of the game. This book is NOT that.

This book is more "understanding the flow and strategies of the game".

Pros:
- Very "pretty" book with almost all pages in color
- Lots of drills with GREAT graphics and explanations for each one
- A couple very useful diagrams like the one on scoring percentages by area of the field
- Some good bullet points for different areas of the game

Cons:
- Many of the drills are found in many other places including free websites
- MAINLY, it's not really about game intelligence

Try Wayne Harrisons - Soccer Awareness, Developing the thinking player. There is NO better soccer awareness training book...

It looks great, but I wonder if Harrison's book is too much for a middle school player to read (however bookish he is) because its written for the coach and professional trainer?? I truly need a recommendation for him...he is the player who has gotten good because he is fast, can be taught and will practice incessantly, not because of instinct. His coach keeps telling him to "wake up". He is trying to explain what he wants him to develop, but the heavy Russian accent from a guy who was a child prodigy (therefore doesn't understand why this kid doesn't get it) isn't working.
