Thanks Rick to add Value to my life ........and making me truly live on 'One Day Contract' Cheers
Coach P sews together life and sports in a way that's easy to absorb and interesting to follow. Even at my post-60 age, I am not too old to learn and there are life lessons that I find valuable and doable, most particularly in the areas of humility and focus.
would have been different for me. Well,
I didn't, so there's nothing like the
present to start. It's never too late. The book
Cons: The non-stop adoration of Bill and Hillary Clinton was a bit tough to take for a right-leaning reader who expected an apolitical self-help book (e.g. Hillary Clinton was a "highly successful Secretary of State.") I guess if you don't count Benghazi & the Middle East becoming even more of a hellhole. Yes, she was super "successful." To use one of Pitino's terms in the book, it was a unneeded distraction. It seemed like every chapter name dropped a Clinton. To provide credence to some of his principles, he could have easily used more apolitical, (far) less polarizing examples. Also, I found some of the other supporting examples to be a bit anecdotal and/or outlandish. Like the idea that one of the richest coaches in all of sports "saved up" for his annual vacation to California? Come on, now!.. And my final critique: I thought the 'One-Day Contract' chapter to be on the disappointing side. This was the title of the book, and it came off like a to-do list written by a motivational speaker. Which is basically what it is. Example (using my words, again): 8:00am: Meet with assistant coaches. Be nice to them. Make it a great meeting. Create positive vibe...
Overall: Certainly worth the investment for around 15 bucks or even cheaper for Kindle. Chapter Two (2) alone is worth the price of purchase. You will get some great life/career advice (e.g. How good would you be at your career if you swapped the time you spent on Twitter and social media with efforts to better your career/trade?). And if you are a college basketball fan (I am not), you will get even more out of it via an inside look at the 2013 NCAA Championship season of the Louisville Cardinals. It won't disappoint.
