On the surface, you'd be impressed by the record breaking achievements of the team that were highlighted in the movie. Yet what is truly fascinating is Coach Yoast's journey as a person and a leader. What you learn about great leaders is that they are human. They have real experiences that helped them gain valuable insight, which they then transcend to the rest of us. Coach Yoast has done just that. And this book does not fall short of this remarkable man's accomplishments.

The author does a fantastic job of drawing out the essence of a wonderful life's journey. In a style truly his own, Steve Sullivan gets right to the heart of the matter; never losing grasp of your attention.

I read this book in one sitting. I flipped the last page only to find that I had reached the end of the journey. I realized immediately that although I had reached the end, the lessons and character of Coach Yoast will live on with me for a long long time.

Thank you for the inspiration.

I've grown tired of reading about so-called leaders who hype, cajole, posture and exhort their people. Read this book and learn what real leadership is. Bill Yoast brings skill, knowledge, and respect for his players to his coaching. He realizes what so few leaders today seem to grasp - it's the leader who needs to adapt. Each leadership task (game) is different. Each player is different. Bill Yoast provides inspiration and instruction to his players. He keeps the goals clear and provides his players with the conditioning and training they need. He doesn't tell his players they are good, he works to make them good. The author, Steve Sullivan, has chosen to give us the story in smooth flowing bite-sized pieces and that works well. Each bite contains a gem of an idea or a rich example that aspiring leaders can and should adopt.

Remember This Titan, is a wonderful accounting of Bill Yoast's life, ups and downs, the expected and the unexpected. It is the story of a man who LIVED decency long before it was fashionable. The success of the team, both on the field and in their interpersonal relationships, was nurtured by the presence of this fine teacher, leader and coach. In a time when schools go out of their way to emphasize that character counts, this is a fine, enjoyable book to share with the children/students in your life. There are so many valuable lessons, from Mary's impact on Coach Yoast to the profound influence of Raymond Tetfeller on Yoast's young life. This book is beautifully written. It flows with astonishing honesty from humor to heart-wrenching pain. Sullivan has an obvious knowledge, understanding and respect for Coach Yoast. As if all of the above isn't enough, there are action plans and lists of invaluable facts in the back. Remember This Titan is a great read which has had a lasting impact on me. p.s. I had a student at the end of the year say, "Hey, Ms. Stewart are YOU reading a football book, cool!" Enjoy.

I graduated from FC Hammond in June of 1971 before Alexandria changed the school system. Bill Yoast was Hammond's head football coach and having gone to school with some of the players involved in this now famous story, was interested in reading his side of the story. Enjoyed it.

Being a HUGE fan of Remember the Titans, I was anxiously awaiting the release of Remember this Titan -- the Bill Yoast Story. Steve Sullivan did not disappoint and even exceeded all expectations. Sullivan managed to tell Coach Yoast's story in a way that keeps the reader wanting more. What I loved so much about Remember the Titans, I found in Remember this Titan - a chance to experience every emotion possible from laughter and tears to excitement and trepidation. Not only was I left with an intense respect for Coach Yoast, but also for Sullivan as a writer. Coach Yoast's story should be a "must read" for every student, leader, religious group, book club and parent. What an amazing example of leadership and character Yoast is and what a remarkable job Sullivan did depicting it.

The life story of Coach Bill Yoast and the true events not covered and/or not told by the Disney movie "Remember the Titans." A must read, especially for the young coach who wants his or her team to not only be successful, but understand the meaning of character, team work, and leadership. An easy read packed with life lessons and feel good moments!

Coach Yoast, my high school coach, is one of the best role models I have ever encountered. He inspired and influenced me to become a teacher, coach and educational administrator. I have stayed in touch with him over these past forty years and thanked him for the difference he made in my life. Reading his book, I never knew the trials and challenges he faced and overcame to become the man he is. Every person who coaches kids should read his book and discover that coaching is more than just winning. It is setting a positive example, developing and nurturing the spirit and strengths of your young players that have a life long effect. Every young person can learn from his book that they can overcome great obstacles to become what they want to be. This is one of the best books that I know that can inspire a person to make a difference.
