Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Successful professional football coaches are often in demand as motivational speakers at corporate business gatherings, and this book is keyed toward that demand. Gathered here are first-person narratives from ten past and present National Football League head coaches who have won 13 of the 18 Super Bowls in which their teams have appeared. The narratives highlight how each coach set out to build and maintain a winning team, with focus on such business management topics as the importance of preparation, the power of innovation, and how to move up from middle management. The comparison of these sports experiences to the field of business is sometimes strained and a bit far-reaching, but this book should appeal both to football fans and business management readers who are not put off by the gridiron. For most public libraries.-John Maxymuk, Rutgers Univ. Lib., Camden, N.J.
