There is no doubt that Mike Babcock is a winner and a great leader who can teach us all something. What he is not, however, is a writer. I feel the book did not go through a proper editorial process and ended up as a haf baked product.

Leave No Doubt is based on a credo written for Canada's 2010 Olympic hockey campaign. Almost every line of the credo gets a chapter. The issue is that the thoughts are loosely connected. Babcock goes from one idea to the other without making sure there is a connect
A restaurant that combines two different styles of cuisine blended together into new dishes is known as “fusion”. This term could easily apply to “Leave No Doubt”, as well. Are Mike Babcock and Rick Larsen attempting to tell the story of Canada's 2010 Olympic Gold Medal men's hockey team? Yes. Are they trying to present a motivational plan that the reader can apply to his or her daily life? Also yes.

Fans of both genres should absolutely love this book. As coach, Mike Babcock has a great insight

This book is about more than just hockey, it's about life in general and living it to your full potential. So many people just go through life and never really chase their dreams, this book inspires one to get after what you really want from life and never give up no matter what the circumstance.

Great insight from one of the best hockey coaches around currently in the NHL and very thoughtfully laid out text to allow plenty of room "in the margins" to write down your own thoughts on the topics he

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic games claims the top spot in Canadian hockey history. Sidney Crosby’s overtime goal fueled patriotism this land has ever felt. This book is not about the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. In fact, the book does not capture the emotions felt by every Canadian who watched the game. The journey is hidden within Babcock’s use of open rhetoric (and blank space) about leadership. If you’re seeking a behind the scenes look at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, look somewhere else.

The only
Very inspiring, interesting insight into Mike Babcock's philosophy of winning and excellence. I have food for thought, and a map for facing challenges and achieving success.
Kelly Cassidy
This was a great book on inspiration, teamwork, leadership, and showing that one person working in an equally strong team who all have the same end goal in mind can achieve success.

If you like hockey, all the details that Mike Babcock enters into the book will be exceptionally enjoyable as well. His interactions with players, other coaches, and even getting his backstory of what brought him there (including his failures) was a great inspration.

Definitely worth a read if you want a book to inspir
well done. not just for a hockey fan
Mike Babcock is a simple man, with simple words and wisdom. I appreciate that. Not fantastic writing, but a great book for interested hockey fans who could use some guidance.
Inspiring and motivating, worth a re-read.
