I was skeptical at first when my husband handed the book to me. He had received it from his brother. The two of them raved about the book but as a woman I was reluctant to spend energy reading a book about football and coaching- I have never been active in sports, other than spending hours watching my daughter play lacrosse from the time she was 6 or 7. Yet as I began to read, Joe's story touched my heart. This isn't just a story about coaching. I highly recommend this book for all educators, parents and anyone who has children. I felt so deeply connected to Joe's personal narrative- I suppose we are all wounded children in some way, and Joe's steps for how to correct these patterns are not only promising but inspirational and a god-send. I recommend this book to all my friends, co-workers and family members.

The journey from a transactional coach to a transformational coach can be long and have many turns, the key is to be on the path. Joe Ehrmann has been a personal mentor to thousands over the past decade through his speeches and coaching. I am thankful to have had several great interactions with him in that span and have always wanted him to write a book. Now not only has he written a book, he has given us all a view into his soul and we can only become more inspired to live up to the goal of being a transformational mentor to any and all people we meet. Be you a boss, an employee, a player, or a coach, being others focused is a way of life. When you take up this cause, I imagine Joe saying, "Welcome to the Team!".

In the novel, Inside Out Coaching, the author, Joe Ehrmann, explores multiple facets of coaching and what coaches must do to transform their players’ lives across the nation.  This novel is for coaches wishing to enhance their coaching style to become people that make a noticeable difference in their athlete’s behavior and style of play.  Athletes, that want to see more from their coaches, can also read this sports book to gain a better understanding of what they should expect from coaches.  Ehrmann introduces his methods of coaching to the reader in a step by step process.  Every chapter has a clearly defined purpose where he breaks down what moral values and lessons coaches must teach their players.  His retrospective style encompassed many of his experiences playing in the NFL and how his family and coaches have made him the man he is today.  He chooses to look at the past and considers what worked for him and what didn’t work, and takes this knowledge to develop a better program for coaches today. One lesson I will take from this novel that I never received from my competitive coaches is that coaches must have empathy for their players.  They must understand that athletes can’t perform well everyday; we all have off days.  However, I didn’t enjoy reading this novel once I discovered Ehrmann’s repetitive style of writing.  The message he was trying to impart on people is the idea of transactional coaching vs. transformational coaching and how this affects athletes.  As the reader, I felt he delivered his message but never moved on to other areas of discussion.  This novel is for an exclusive group of coaches and athletes which is why it wouldn’t fare well in the movie industry or in a school’s curriculum due to the considerable number of people who would struggle to relate to this book.  I would give Ehrmann’s novel 2 out of 5 stars because he felt that his method of coaching is the only one coaches should aspire to follow, and I didn’t agree with some of his methods.

This is the most provacative book to come a long around in a long time, challenging the way we think and act about sports and kids. Joe's idea of coaching from the inside out makes so much wonder he's coached winning teams, and was named the Most Important Coach in America by Parade magazie. Never has this topic been so beautifully laid out and written about.What a brave, honest and compassionate man joe is......Great job Joe...on your life, your self and this thoughtful book.I do believe you've changed the way I think about interacting with my cihldren....this is a must read for anyonw who works with kids in any arena.

Joe Ehrmann's book, InSideOut Coaching is a wonderful book in which Joe Ehrmann opens up about his life and how he became the coach that he thinks everyone should be... someone who coaches from "the heart" who leads with empathy. It is a must read for anyone who wants to make an impact on kids of all ages.
