-President Bill Clinton
"Pete Carroll presents great advice on how to be a winner in life. The twist is that the key is to focus on the process, not the outcome, and to compete hard in every way on your journey. It has certainly worked for Pete, who is a winner in so many ways, and it can work for anybody in all different aspects of life."
-NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
"During his time at USC Pete Carroll raised the bar in college football coaching with 7 straight BCS appearances, but as you'll read in Win Forever, his ultra competitive spirit and infectious energetic attitude have been the foundation to his many successes both on and off the field."
-Kirk Herbstreit, analyst for ESPN's College GameDay
"Coach Carroll is the fiercest competitor I know. Not only as a coach, but as a mentor and more importantly, a friend. That mentality allowed me to enter the NFL with the tools necessary for the highest level of competition. Furthermore, those traits transcended off the field and will offer a competitive edge for anyone who reads his book."
"Win Forever-it's not about wins and losses, it's about the competition within Pete's life. Reading his book, it's evident that he has a clear understanding that his job is more about creating an environment and foundation for young men that can better who they are every day on and off the field."
"What impressed me about Pete is his contagious, positive approach and that his talents go far beyond what makes a great football coach. His philosophy of helping everyone be the best they can be makes sense in all aspects of everyday life. This will help everyone in our organization and will play a big part in defining the Seahawks' mindset and philosophy as we move forward."
-Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen
"If this book were just about football, it would be interesting but not compelling. Coach Carroll has something to say of importance to all of us who want to discover our potential as human beings. That he can win football games is beyond doubt, but that he can win over doubt itself is something special."
-Tim Gallwey, author of The Inner Game of Tennis, The Inner Game of Work, and The Inner Game of Stress
"Coach Carroll is one of the finest teachers in all of sport and one who I respect immensely. I'm just glad that he is now coaching in the NFL and not for our archrival anymore."
-John R. Wooden

on a side note...I hope Amazon pulls down all the reviews on here that are just posted to trash Pete Carroll...I buy quite often from Amazon and use these reviews to help me decide on my purchases...obviously those of you "reviewing" have issue with Pete so here is a suggestion - start a blog and share your opinions on there as much as you would like, but don't affect the rating integrity of Amazon...
With that said, I found the book very helpful and enjoyed many aspects of it. I found the chapters on developing your own philosophy, competition, coaching your coaches, and practice is everything the most beneficial. I also enjoyed how this book stayed the course and focused on the development of his belief system and did not get into a lot of "glory days" of USC football. At times, he does become redundant but that is done to reinforce what was said and how he got to where he is today.
Finally, while some reviewers have hammered Coach Carroll on his recent departure with sanctions looming and theories on how he was successful via cheating, I found these unfair and irrelevant to the book. While you may not like him or how they were successful over the last few years, take the book for what's it worth: one man's growth and evolution as a coach and how he got to where he is today.

Pete Carroll. Super Bowl-winning coach of the Seattle Seahawks. Super inspiring guy.
Pete wrote this book after an incredibly successful decade coaching the USC Trojans and right before he started coaching the Seahawks--a team that had won 9 games in the 2 seasons before he showed up. He basically called his shot--quickly turning the team around and winning a Super Bowl after a few seasons. That's remarkable.
This book captures the essence of his philosophy: To Win Forever by Always Competing. It's an inspiring semi-autobiographical look at his journey in life and in football to craft the philosophy that now guides his success on and off the field.
If you're into sports, you'll definitely love it. Even if you're not, it's a great read packed with goodness.
I'm excited to share a handful of my favorite Big Ideas:
1. Coach Maslow - On the football field.
2. A Winning Philosophy - What's yours?
3. Oops. Fired Again. - But only 5 times.
4. Win Forever. - The philosophy arrives.
5. Practice Is Everything - Period.
