Soccer iQ is the first book for soccer PLAYERS!

In a world saturated with books about how to coach soccer, Dan Blank finally gives players a book on how to think it. Standing on two decades of collegiate coaching experience, Blank has catalogued soccer's most common mistakes and provides simple, connect-the-dots solutions to help players solve their soccer problems.

Soccer IQ is soccer's first text book for players; an almanac of smarter soccer decisions intended to flatten out the learning curve. It covers everything from hunting rebounds to the value of the toe-ball; from playing in the rain to the world's dumbest foul. Blank tells his story from the familiar and humorous voice of a coach who has endured years of stress at the hands of his players. Written in plain-spoken language, Soccer IQ is an easy read and a quick-fix to the most common yet critically important soccer problems. Includes a bonus chapter on the college recruiting process.

Intelligent Soccer. Isn't it funny that this book was written for the players and here all the reviews are by us coaches? I think we are attracted to this book because it gives us a chance to see the game from a new perspective. By learning the psychology of the game from the player's point of view, we can learn a lot! While I was reading this book, I found that Dan Blank was spot-on with his catalog of soccer's most common mistakes and how we can solve them. This is a really great read for you annd your players!
