Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Background Story NBA Coaching Career Building the Spurs Dynasty The Gregg Popovich System How Gregg Popovich Maximizes Player Talent Gregg Popovich, the Leader Key Takeaways Conclusion and Gregg Popovich's Legacy An excerpt from the book: Much like how soldiers are the reasons why countries win battles, players are the reasons why NBA teams win games on the hardwood floor. The countless hours they put into honing and crafting their game in the gym and weight room contributes to how they affect the outcome of games. They sacrifice and pour out their sweat, tears, and even blood for the purpose of giving wins to their teams and fans. But while NBA games are won by the players on the floor, preparation and strategy have always been the keys to winning championships. Soldiers may be the reasons why battles are won, but wars are won outside of the battlefield. And in the NBA, players may be the reasons why teams win games, but championships are won by the leadership of their coaches. And when it comes down to coaching, one would be hard-pressed to find someone better than Gregg Popovich in that department. There have been many great coaches that have become legendary names in the history of the NBA. There was Red Auerbach, who was a revolutionary at making his team focus on making each other better on his way to nine NBA championships during the 60's era of the league. While relying on Bill Russell's leadership on the floor, the Boston Celtics were winning titles and dominating in a less competitive era because of how Auerbach instilled in them the basics and fundamentals of team play. Decades later, Pat Riley would make the Los Angeles Lakers the best show on the planet by running a fast-paced system that relied on the fastbreak and passing skills of Magic Johnson. Riley would win four titles with the Lakers back in the 80's and would later win one again with the Miami Heat in 2006 at the tail end of his coaching career.

    Per il prezzo che ha non ci si può aspettare molto. Il libro è facile da leggere e scorrevole, anche per chi non conosce benissimo l’inglese, ma di fatto non aggiunge nulla di quello che “si sa già”. In attesa di una biografia ufficiale può essere una piacevole lettura per chi non conosce la storia recente della franchigia, ma nulla di più

    Ok. It was interesting to find out more about Gregg P, especially as a fellow USAFA alumni. However, I was disappointed that this was an unauthorized biography (I should have looked closer at it when I got it). It was pretty basic and simple. Not a lot of details, and probably some general story-telling instead of specific details on Popo's coaching and strategy to win. Ok.

    I should have done more of a review on the author and the books he writes. I appreciate how sports related books provide insight into management, team building and leadership but his was more of a long essay with personal opinions than a true book of leadership for me. I wanted more content and details.
