The latter half of the book gives advice to parents with children in youth sports. There's advice on training, workouts, nutrition, and keys to avoid "sports burnout." It really makes parents aware of the pitfalls of pushing competitive young athletes too hard, and advises them to train them wisely while keeping things fun.
After reading this book, you'll definitely be able to get more out of your young athletes.
The author provides ten case studies of athletes, who demonstrated tremendous promise as youths and the paths they took to either greatness or notoriety. Some of these great athletes, most readers will know, such as Wayne Gretzky, Kobe Bryant, Mike Tyson, and Tiger Woods; whereas other athletes, such as Greco-Roman wrestling great Alexander Karelin or Mixed Martial Artist BJ Penn are just as great in their sports, but have not reached celebrity-athlete status. Anthony also provides the cautionary tale of Todd Marinovich, who was trained from even before birth to be a world-class NFL quarterback, but crashed and burned as a result of his father single track mind training.
The author gives sound advice on developing a through training problem for the young budding athlete in your family without being a helicopter parent. Anthony also emphasizes the critical need for young athletes to develop good eating habits and tough mental mindset.
