Great story for all to hear

What made the experience of listening to Wins, Losses, and Lessons the most enjoyable?

Hearing the story in his own voice with the passion and recollection made this worth while. I am not a huge football fan and was not familiar with a lot of Lou's career details but found the matter-of-fact approach he took to each new team fascinating

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wins, Losses, and Lessons?

The story of how he was fired abruptly from Arkansas and never knew why. He still managed to quickly turn this around into a positive experience

What does Lou Holtz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing his voice lets you better understand his speech difficulties

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The story of his retirement, Beth's health scare, and his subsequent return to coaching

Amazing!

Would you consider the audio edition of Wins, Losses, and Lessons to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed this audio book very much. Lou did a great job narrating his work. As a coach, I also found it very inspirational. Great Job!

must have (hear) audible book for all genders

Not only is the book enriched with history and name dropping of many famous people, not only is it about football, the game and the players, but this book is about life and the changes life throws at us and perspectives on how to live and handle those changes. yes, it's a biography of Lou Holtz, and you will learn things about him that you wouldn't otherwise have a chance to know, but you get an inside on how he coached his team, not the plays, but how he brought the team together emotionally and as a family with integrity and honor and each time he put those things in place, the team was great and each time those things were missing, troubles fell upon them. this is not just a book for the male gender. it might help if you have some knowledge of football and some knowledge of who Lou Holtz is, but overall, this book will move you, even if you know nothing about football.

An inspiring book - not a football book

I am so glad that Lou Holtz reads this himself. It added so much charm to the story. It is not about football. It is about meeting tough challenges and winning. And when you don't win, you get tougher and then win next time. It is deeply moving, funny and uplifting. I recommend it for anyone.
