"There are teachers with a rare ability to enter a child's mind; it's as if their ability to get there at all gives them the right to stay forever." There was a turning point in Michael Lewis's life, in a baseball game when he was fourteen years old. The irascible and often terrifying Coach Fitz put the ball in his hand at a crucial point in the game and managed to convey such confident trust in Lewis's ability that the boy had no choice but to live up to it. "I didn't have words for it then, but I do now: I am about to show the world, and myself, what I can do." The coach's message was not simply about winning but about self-respect, sacrifice, courage and endurance. Thirty years later, Lewis still finds himself trying to measure up to what Coach Fitz expected of him.

Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
A story that has tremendous value was told and written without any fluff or run on tangents for word count or page fill.
Do not value this book by the page, value it by the impact that the words on those pages have.
I know that I have and I have reread this book many, many times.
We all have that 1 coach that we would do anything for - I know that I have.
It just so happens to be that 1 coach that some people don't like just as intensely.
There is a reason for that - that coach made you surpass your limits of what you thought was possible - made you feel comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Some value that, and some would rather stay within their comfortable limits.
It is interesting to note that the coach never changed over time, the only thing that changed was how he was valued.
With some valuing "not to loose what they have" over "becoming what they could be."
Praise to Michael Lewis for telling a meaningful story at its proper length.
It is more powerful than any 600+ page book that I have ever read.
This should take you about 25 minutes to read.
