    Response to the May 5, 2006 review

    A previous review posted May 5, 2006, 1:08 AM EST read as follows: <BR/><BR/>I seriously question if this guy has ever really studied rugby. He offers bad advice which shows little command of game management and skill development. Avoid this book. There are many good books out there. This is clearly not one of them. Avoid.<BR/>(from the Barnes and Noble website - http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Womens-Rugby/N-Stanley-Nahman/e/9781930546752#TABS)<BR/><BR/>Response, Nov 12, 2008<BR/><BR/>Ouch! Geez, I wrote the book in question! After such a roasting (from the May 5, 2006 review), I think a short rebuttal is indicated. Please consider the following:<BR/><BR/>1. I have both played and studied rugby! I played 14 seasons in my younger days for a college club and later a city side. As a young player I was selected for the Ohio Under 23¿s select side and later I played for the first-15 of the all Mid-south select side. My career tapered and ended as I entered my residency training in medicine. Sixteen years after retiring as a player, I joined the Denison University women¿s program and learned an enormous amount of rugby from then coach Kevin Brown. While assisting coach Brown, I completed the USA rugby level 1 coaching course by George Hook, and completed an entry level referee course.<BR/><BR/>2. Concerning advice that is offered by the book. Please note that the advice offered in the text is derivative of my experiences with collegiate women athletes, my reading on how to coach women soccer players, as well as the Greenwood and Biscombe books that are referenced in the text. <BR/><BR/>3. The value of the review. The scathing comments suggest an unfulfilled expectation - the reviewer assumed it was a book about men¿s rugby as played by women. I wrote a book about women¿s rugby as played by women. If the reader expected a text promoting aggressive style of play, complex individual and unit based maneuvers (that rarely work more than 5% of the time with novice players) and no text dedicated to team building and the development of a cooperative spirit among the players, then (s)he was surely disappointed. I appreciate these opportunities to try and clarify the purpose of the text.<BR/><BR/>The approach to teaching and coaching women¿s rugby is quite distinct from men¿s rugby. Countless authors have shown the same to be true with soccer. Why should rugby be any different? My goal in writing the book was to try to articulate an unique approach to the needs of American collegiate women as they explore the joys and challenges of this greatest of all sports. I strongly believe that the women¿s collegiate game is uniquely its own, and most definitely not the men¿s game played by women.<BR/><BR/>In her review published in the October 15, 2005 issue of Rugby Magazine, Jackie Finlan gives an eloquent synopsis of the theme of the book. In addition, the text is recommended reading for the Oberlin University Women¿s club in Oberlin Ohio, and the Lancer High School rugby team in Sacramento. Clearly, others differ with the reviewer in the relative value of the text.<BR/><BR/>Finally, my thanks to the reviewer for taking the time to comment on the book. It helped me to further understand and state my reasons for taking the time to write it.<BR/><BR/>Stan Nahman<BR/>Jacksonville FL<BR/><BR/>PS - I gave the book 3 stars simply to be able to post this review...

    Don't waste your time or money

    I seriously question if this guy has ever really studied rugby. He offers bad advice which shows little command of game management and skill development. Avoid this book. There are many good books out there. This is clearly not one of them. Avoid.
