Someone gave my husband a copy of this book because he's now in his 4th year of coaching within little league. I'm a big fan of WIllie Geist on the Today Show, and have also always liked Bill Geist. This was a fast, fun read. Maybe since we're still so early in Little League we haven't gotten all jaded - it's really been refreshing that we haven't ever had to deal with nightmare parents or kids. It's been all fun.
This was a good quick read. I really enjoyed the comedic take on what it is to be a little league coach. He also interjects the over optimism of seeing your son play sports for the first time which leads to dreams of him making it to the pro's. Enjoyed it.
One of the funniest parent books I have experienced.Human nature is personified in parents,coaches,and players in each chapter.Sometimes politically incorrect,but I like that.I Highly recommend the book if you can find it.
