I enjoyed the story of Bob LaMonte. His unlikely rise from high school teacher to sports agent is nothing short of remarkable. His teaching career led him to acquaint himself with the high school's football coach Mike Holmgren. The reader can tell this is an important event in LaMonte's life since he literally retells it in each chapter. Many of Holmgren's assistant went on to head coaching jobs, creating new clients for LaMonte. Some like Holmgren and Gruden have done great things. Than there is Mike Sherman, the most overrated coach in the NFL.
As alluded to earlier, the concept is interesting but poorly told. So much of the information is continuously repeated that this book could have easily been under 200 pages. These are problems editors should fix. But as LaMonte would suggest in the book, he should take responsibility since it is his project.
