Publisher's Summary

What is an elite NFL QB, and what separates that player from the others? One answer is the coach they share. In the recent history of the biggest game on earth, one man is the common thread that connects several of the very best in the sport: Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck, and the resurgent Carson Palmer. That coach is Bruce Arians.
A larger than life visionary who trained under the tutelage of Bear Bryant, Arians has had a major impact on the development and success of each of these players. For proof beyond the stats, go to the sources.
Known around the game as the "quarterback whisperer", Arians has an uncanny ability both to personally connect with his quarterbacks and to locate what the individual triggers are for that player to succeed. No two quarterbacks are the same. And yet with Arians, they always share success. In this book Arians will explain how he does it.


What the Critics Say

"Bruce is gonna love you when you need some loving, but he's gonna jump on you when you're not doing right." (Peyton Manning)
"He coaches the way players want to be coached." (Ben Roethlisberger)
"We're a resilient group. It trickles down from the head coach. I think good teams, really good teams, and hopefully great teams take on their coach's mentality. I think that's what B.A. brings...." (Carson Palmer)

A Must Read for NFL Fans

This book was just phenomenal. As a Steelers fan I loved learning about Bruce Arians interaction with Big Ben. But the book is so much more. It gives insights into his relationship with Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck and the Colts, and Carson Palmer with his time with the Cardinals. It also gives an insight into his time with his college Qbs at Temple and other backups he has trained through the years.
This book is a great combination on coaching insight, NFL History, the journeys of an overlooked assistant coach and what it takes to play QB.
I listened to this book on vacation and I LOVED every minute of it.
