I completely disagree with the previous comment. It appears as though it was hard for the previous commenter to disguise their own bias (perhaps an author or academic who had little to no success spreading their own message), as this book provides a complementary balance of science AND stories. It includes the work of 16 other highly respected coaches in the field of strength and conditioning, physiotherapy and the like. Anyone who thinks one must have a PhD in order to share their experiences in working with people is sorely mistaken and at best, likely ineffective themselves. ALL industries deal with people and we are better off learning from the shared experiences of others. I found this book to be an enjoyable and easily digestible resource for anyone who hopes to lead more effectively.
More falsehoods than facts, are disseminated in this book. It is clear Brett Bartholomew is among the many who believe expertise is a game of factoids as opposed to true expertise which is based upon education, training, supervision of practice, pattern recognition, licensure, scope of practice/ethics, and acceptance of one's role and its boundaries. His education is in strength and conditioning yet he happily wades in the brain sciences, bringing to life the idea- “that a little knowledge is dangerous.” The author proceeds to overestimate his abilities by waxing on how one can identify athlete’s personality traits with no expertise. Not only is this beyond his scope of practice it is fundamentally dangerous and can harm others. A poorly contrived book and that seems to be an effort to elevate his platform for personal gain without any reference of the harm that can be rendered by acting ‘as if’ he is a psychologist or sport psychologist.
