If I could only buy one football coaching book, this would be it
on December 10, 2010
This book doesn't have the greatest Xs and Os. It doesn't plan workouts or practice schedules. But it prepares you to coach like no other book I've read before...or since.
This book talks about why people coach. It takes a philosophical approach, and I think it's especially helpful for new coaches (like I was when I first read it) to prepare for all the things that you may not necessarily be prepared for, for things that you may not even know you SHOULD be prepared for.
I've read a few coaching books in the last few years, both for strategy and philosophy. This is the only football coaching book I didn't get tired of reading. I would recommend this to any coach, aspiring or veteran, to keep close to them at all times.
