“Giving up on somebody takes nothing. Helping them change takes a tremendous amount of time, energy, discipline, and love. In the end, it's worth it.” Genre: Sports Non-fiction. Number of Pages: 272. Perspective: First. Location: Columbus, Ohio. This is a sports memoir and leadership seminar combo by The Ohio State Buckeyes head coach, Urban Meyer. Oh, Urban, I love you and the Buckeyes, but this book was not good. My husband and I listened to the audiobook together on our last road trip (Disclaimer: I hate audiobooks, and it’s even worse when the author is not the narrator). My husband enjoyed the book because of all the behind-the-scenes Buckeye football info. He also played football in high school, so he could relate to the fraternity mindset of football. But he admitted that most info was already public knowledge, especially the recap of the National Championship season. For me--the casual football fan and proud Buckeye--this was redundant and boring. I close to starting a word frequency search for how many times he used the phrase “above the line.” Each chapter had a keyword and he repeated that keyword hundreds of times. It got to the point where I laughed and groaned at each repetitive use. The leadership strategies were vague and did not give clear ways to implement them outside of football.
