Ancelotti is not over-bearing or dictatorial. He compels his players to do the right thing and leads by setting an example as someone who is calm under pressure, slow to anger, and keeps in mind the well-being of the person when navigating the obstacles within the high-pressure and complex world of modern day football management.
This book offers the reader insight into how Ancelotti's leadership style was used throughout his career and provides guidance as to how his techniques can be used at all levels of management.
Between the carrot and the stick approach, Ancelotti's style uses the carrot. Is that he best way? That's up for you to decide, but you will undoubtedly come away with a respect for his style once you read his anecdotes. Best of all, the book contains sections where his former players and colleagues tell you exactly what they think of his style.
It's a must read for every sports coach and manager in any field.
Carlo Ancelotti wrote a masterful book, clearly the best book on applied leadership I have read in a long time.
I have already given it to 10 of my family and closest associates
Waiting for his Bayern München addendum....

Class player, class manager. Class act.
Love the way he understands there are no right or wrong answers in football although there is only one answer to be a professional footballer - be professional. I also like the way he tries to fit in with the Clubs he manages rather than get them to fit in with him. MR Ego Maureen could learn a lot from this man.
Didn't much care for the write-ups from the ex-players, a bit bland and predictable. But I was surprised that David Beckham wrote one as I didn't realise he could actually write.
Roman Abramovich comes across as a real dope. He initially speaks to Carlo that he wants Chelsea to have an 'identity' like Barca or Man U have (basically the way they play) but he doesn't seem to understand that Carlo is one of the few men in football that could build that long term identity for him. So what does the Russian 'businessman' do, fires him after just 2 seasons. Having said that Carlo doesn't talk bad about the Russian.
Overall this book proves that there are many ways to win as a manager. You can be a sort of tyrant like Fergie or you can be cool clam and collected like Carlo or perhaps something in between. All are right, all are wrong, it just depends on what your character is. Carlo can't be a killer, he's far too nice for that, so he manages a football club in a similar fashion to his character. New managers can learn from this. Don't be what you can't be...
