What did you love best about Head Ball Coach?
The insight into how he became the unique coach and personality that he is. Spurrier is a pretty decent story teller. And he's got some stories to tell...
What did you like best about this story?
Spurrier is self critical and owns up to some personal failings and regrets. His lists that he's made up over the years on leadership and winning are must reads. He's a much more thoughtful guy than I expected. I was a student at University Florida when he hired on as head ball coach in 1990. I would often see him jogging on campus and always said, "Hey Coach!" He was gruff and would just grunt back at me. Didn't want to be bothered. It became a game for me. I just thought he didn't like people. Listening to the book changed my opinion. He's very much a people person and very thoughtful.
What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
No thoughts on this point.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. I listened to about 80% of it the day I downloaded it. I even muted the Florida vs. Iowa bowl game and listened to the audiobook.
Any additional comments?
Love Spurrier. The book inspired me to think a little bit differently with respect to how I approach professional life. I also learned that the Head Ball Coach has some atrocious taste in music. Regardless, I highly recommend this audio book. Extremely entertaining. Go Gators!
Loved it!!!! Great inside information that I often wondered about, but now I have all the facts from a great man and Head Ball Coach.
