    1. I just finished reading the best book I've read in a very long time. I don't tend to put athletes on pedestals because Here, There be Dragons or Tigers or whichever term for danger you prefer. It generally comes to no good end. Celebrities, athletes or otherwise, are just everyday people who live their lives in the spotlight. That's no reason to look up to them unless they show themselves worthy of such attention. I was never sure whether I put coaches in the same category but since he came to t [...]

    2. TODO+ a project management book with little theory and lots of practice (behind)+ describes how several winning programs, from university to pro football, were designed, implemented, and operated+ a serious, strict man about a serious, strict approach+ discusses how the strictness has changed over time, as new generations of players have started to expect more lenient approaches to management+ discusses how delegation of responsibility started to occur- can such a strict approach, even after mul [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this book that gave tips on effective leadership. The analogies to sports and running a successful organization like the Giants were fitting and easily understandable for a person with any leadership responsibilities. I borrowed it from the library but I would buy this book as it pertains to any aspect of life, not just football. It also helped that the Giants are my second-favorite team :)

    4. I really liked this book it reminded me that organized preparation is essential, and that a winning mentality is necessary in order to achieve. I'm not into football so I kind of glossed over all of the technical examples of how things played out on the field, but that was okay. I got a lot out of it.

    5. This is a great book for football fans of all ages - you don't have to be a Giants fan to read this book. Some key points: Preparation is so important in all aspects of your life. Using time efficiently, having good time management, paying close attention to details. Establish trust and communication with your team.

    6. Currently reading this book now. I am a Giants Fan, but that is not what interested me in this book. I like the way Coughlin relates his advice and anedotes for winning on the field to simply being a winner in Life!!! Great advice from a Great Man!!!

    7. This is an excellent book. It can be applied to any form of management. I was looking forward to reading this book as a Giants fan, but it is not exclusively a football book. Many of coughlin's philosophies can be used in all walks of life. He is an inspiration.

    8. Really good book on how important preparation is for success, not only in sports, but in business and life in general. I bought it after seeing a show about Tom Coughlin on NFL Network, then did a search looking more for a biography, but saw this and picked it up. Glad I did.

    9. Excellent book helped me realize how much goes into coaching. It helped me in realizing again the need to prepare myself so when something happens I have a good base to go back to. a great book for anyone it is not a football book, football just provides the background

    10. Good book. A lot of coaching and life concepts that I already subscribe to, thanks to good coaches that I have had. This was a lot like my program for hockey coaching.

    11. Great insight into the NFL and very motivational. However, I feel like there were a few too many typos and it distracted me.
