Excellent read for a Seattle Seahawks Fan,
This review is from: Win Forever: Live, Work, and Play Like a Champion (Hardcover)
This book has many of the commonly known principles of success. The uniqueness of the book comes from the individual way in which Pete Carroll used the various influences on his life to design his personal philosophy. That's the lesson he offers the reader. He's not interested in telling you what your philosophy should be. He only wants to share how he came to embrace the philosophy that guides him and he encourages the reader to write down and think about what drives them and how to utilize such revelations to maximize their life.
For a Seattle Seahawks fan it is interesting to learn about the many influences that have shaped the philosophy Carroll will be using to build the Seahawks into champions. I for one am hoping he succeeds, though I know the odds are long. But Pete Carroll is definitely not afraid to go for it. The fact that he is willing to publically put his philosophy to the test shows alot of courage. His philosophy worked in the college ranks at USC, but there is no gurantee that Pete's system will translate well to the NFL.
Pete's a very well-read, interesting man that has come along away to achieve the success he has achieved. You'll read in this book that it was no easy path to the success he achieved at USC. And being the competitor he is, his return to the NFL is driven by the strong sense of competition he has displayed his entire life. He wants to show he can coach and win against the best competition in the world. He lives his philosophy and lends an authenticity to the work that isn't always there in self-help books because of his willingness to put his philosophy to the test against the best competition in the world. I recommend giving it a read and keeping up with how well his philosophy helps the Seahawks become world champions.
