It seems like most parents have forgotten how to appropriately help their children excel in athletics. All you have to do is attend a youth sporting event to see the evidence that a book like this should be mandatory reading for the parents, and child for that matter, of anyone playing competitive sports.

Excellent ideas about raising kids to strive for excellence in whatever they do. It's especially good if those kids are athletic (but not necessary). I especially like the concept of "be your own coach." Durrant was a better ball player than a writer, but that's what makes it so good. I've given the book to my 14-year-old son to read next.

This book is great for those who have children involved in sports. It give great pointers and tips on how to deal with coaches, balancing school, and how to help your child be sucessful not only in a sport.

I've got to start figuring this all out since I have 4 boys (and no brothers to compare/learn from...maybe that's a good thing!)

This book has given me some things to think about as I raise my children. I've been able to use a couple of his examples to help them along recently.

I liked it! There's great advice for everyone, not just athletes. I wish I would have read it when I was in high school and participating in athletics. Great for everyone to read.
