As a former college women's soccer player, I found myself possessing many of the traits outlined in this book, which I believe was due to having coaches who did not look at me as a female, but rather as an athlete. Now as a college women's soccer coach, I am witnessing that our players are struggling with grasping the idea that it is okay to compete every day or feel that they are in the minority for having such a mentality. Thus, I recently purchased this book for all of the players in our program so that they can see tangible examples of gaining a mental edge by being a competitor and a winner. That is truly what separates the top level players from average players and in turn top level programs from average programs.
Ultimately, this book is a great read for high school and college coaches along with older female athletes who have the dream of playing at a high level.
This book delivered well beyond that to the point where it is the single greatest coaching text that I have EVER read. The material is definitely applicable to female athletes, but so much of it can be applied to males as well. Even though it was written about soccer players, the concepts discussed are universal to all sports - and even to life in general. I could not put it down.
I have already started recommending it to my fellow coaches and even my athletes. It really sets the stage for a winning mentality.
I coach high school girls and have been frequently frustrated by girls who had all the talent to be exceptional, but couldn't seem to 'get there'. This book inspired several things that I'd like to add in to our program to help them embrace the competitive nature of the game.
