Review by: Charlie Ranch on Sep. 29, 2010 :
An outstanding book, and an easy read. It is a collection of just in time articles to help the new and experienced coach alike tackle the toughest coaching and management problems. There is no excuse to have boring or nonproductive practices, no matter the age of the players. I highly recommend this book to help new coaches get started and experienced coaches work to the next level. Thank you Robert!

Review by: Richard Binning on Sep. 9, 2010 :
Excellent book. I especially liked the advice about tournaments versus regular games/practices..."We wouldn't ask a student to take three exams in a row on the same topic
without providing an opportunity for additional study." There is something in there for any coach. Highly recommended!

Excellent book. I have used Parr's essays, which form the basis of this book, to coach a small northern Canadian town boys soccer team which went on to become the provincial soccer champions twice.
