You're a cleaner. This is why you demand the last shot. Why do you demand the last shot? Because you are a cleaner. Why would you pass up the last shot, because you are a cleaner who has belittled or punched a teammate and they didn't sue you so they have earned the title of closer as bestowed by you with your cleaner mentality. Thus you can defer to a closer because you are a cleaner and give them the honor of the last shot.
If none of that makes any sense then you see the problem with the book as that is a summary of how the entire book reads. Cleaners are born, not made and he knows cleaners because he was born a cleaner. If you have to read his book, by definition you would never be a cleaner because a cleaner would be too busy being a cleaner to need affirmation and help to become a cleaner. He trains cleaners because they recognize each other as cleaners and he is a great trainer of cleaners because other trainers aren't cleaners.
Again if you find this hard to read, then you understand the problem with the book.
The author also talks about the people who know how to get the job done -- the ones who work late at night closing up restaurants, or other bottom-of-the-rung jobs, and work their way up in life, paying their dues, learning life's lessons and going on to be superstars. Fair enough, good lessons to be learned going that route. Yet none of his prima donna heroes did any of that.Read more ›
With that out of the way, it's yet another one of those motivational books, except it doesn't seek to motivate you but goes on about how he (and Jordan, Kobe, and Wade) is naturally motivated. So are you, it goes on to say, as long as you keep in touch with your true self and not worry about how you are perceived. Then it keeps up this point by arbitrarily dividing people in to three categories: coolers, closers, and cleaners.
If you were looking for some sort of a motivational book, I'd probably give it 3 stars. If you were looking at some 'behind the scenes' stories of what makes great athletes great, including moments of their not-so-visible lives, you really have come to the wrong place and should move on.
