This book deals with a subject that is usually not discussed, losing.
For every game where there is a winner there must be a loser.
The loss can have have serious and harmful effects on the loser if not properly addressed.
The author addresses some of the known public failures in sports and how these individuals deal or not deal with the failures. We can each learn from the people, involved.
As a Coach in youth sports (baseball), I learn very early that it is best to teach that we give it our all and whatever happens, we can say we have done our best. We can then move on.
Dealing with failures is one of the most important lessons we can learn from sports.
Glad that the author and others mentioned in this book came to the same conclusion. I also hear this from many of our instructors at our British Columbia Baseball Coaches Association - Annual Baseball Coaching Conferences over the years
Hope that all coaches of youth sports read this work. The conversational style makes it an easy read.
