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.
