Be ready to grow

Fantastic book for leaders who want to get the most out of their business or organization. Be ready to look in a very clear mirror of a leader's responsibilities and correcting those as much as the organization as a whole.

The best of the sports leadership books!

This well put together book captures the essence of Bill and his fantastic vision for both football and life. I have read a plethora of sports leadership books and this ranks at the top, right next to John Wooden.
