Overview

Powerful and positive leadership lessons from one of today's most admired coaches

"You Play to Win the Game" is the rallying cry of the comeback New York Jets and their visionary coach, Herman Edwards. Affectionately known as the Energizer Bunny of the NFL, Coach Herm is a perpetual motion machine, a breath of fresh air who used his boundless energy and talent for combining hard work with good fun to guide his team to back-to-back play-off appearances in the 2001 and 2002 seasons. Now, in this leadership playbook, Edwards shares with you the wisdom and insight he counts on to motivate and sustain himself, his team, and the thousands he has inspired.

In writing this book, Edwards turned to his personal bible--a favorite black notebook filled with life lessons he has collected over the years from the people he has admired and respected the most. Here, with his signature one-of-a-kind style, he distills these philosophies and beliefs into wise and witty "Winning Points." Each point:

  • Includes an anecdotal history of how Edwards came to develop that lesson
  • Shares the wisdom of Edwards's teachers--from top NFL coaches to philosophical locker-room janitors
  • Reveals insider details from Edwards's seasons with the Jets and other NFL teams
  • Provides an unprecedented look into the inner workings of football's top motivational coach
  • Shows you how you can chart your own path to success--in business and in life

    Herman Edwards has spent the past three seasons as head coach of the New York Jets. Taking over a losing franchise, he led the Jets to back-to-back play-off appearances in 2001 and 2002, and became the first coach in team historywith playoff berths in his first two seasons. A former standout NFL player for the Philadelphia Eagles, Edwards hosts the annual Herman Edwards Football Camp for underprivileged children in Sacramento, and is the first coach from the NFL's Minority Coaching Fellowship to become a head coach in the NFL.

    Shelley Smith is an award-winning ESPN journalist, and was a Sports Illustrated writer and reporter for eight years.

    I recommend this book to not just young athletes, but to everyon

    I recommend this book to not just young athletes, but to everyone looking to succeed and accomplish their goals. Coach Edwards does an excellent job sharing his life lessons to prove that anyone can accomplish their visions in life. He goes into depth about opportunity, leadership, goals, failure, and making the will stronger than the skill. Focusing on what you can control and not what you can't control is one one the many tips that is worth writing down after reading this book. Everyone can get something out of this book and use it as motivation in their every day lives.

    Great Book for Young Leaders

    I give this book to all young leaders, especially those in sports, to demonstrate a number of key points and fallacies about leadership. All seemed to like the book and took away a much deeper understanding of the topic of leadership. It is a quick read (a must in the video game era) and brings allot of depth to the subject. Well Written and concise. It fit the bill better than any other book I have found on leadership in the last 3 or 4 years.

    Suprisingly Unmotivating

    This book suprise me in the fact that most sports books I can't put down, but this was left me tired and sleepy. Mr. Edwards seems to talk the talk, but it seems like he can't manage his own team. I felt it was a complete waste of my time.
