I have owned a copy of this book for over 12 months and continue to regularly refer back to this fantastic resource. I've seen it referred to as the 'bible' of coaching, and agree that this is an apt description. It covers every element of the process of coaching and really will leave you coaching better every season.
Unless you have a particular fondness for a hard copy book, this is one resource you will probably want to purchase digitally. Having it on your phone or iPad wherever you are is ideal for a resource like this, where you will want to come back to it regularly over a long period of time.
The book was initially reviewed in Athletics Coach (April 2017) and now at just $22.63 for the digital version, it is fantastic value for Track and Field coaches.
