Review:

"[The Golden Rules] stands apart for its humility. [Bowman] has no secrets and knows of no shortcuts. Mostly he obssesses about simplicity. For Phelps and Bowman's other elite swimmers...the most important [goal] is producing the best possible performance at the next practice, and the one after that, and the one after that." ― The Wallstreet Journal

"[The Golden Rules] is [Bowman's] motivational book about winning in all walks of life and what you hvae to do to get there...illuminated by spirited anecdotes, Bowman will teach you how to get gold out of every day by setting goals and getting motivated to achieve them." ― National USA Swimming Organization

"In The Golden Rules, Bowman details 10 steps to world-class excellence in life and work, illustrating them with lessons learned from coaching not only Michael Phelps, but also several more world-class swimmers and his own personal experiences." ― NBCSports.com

"The Golden Rules applies Bowman's coaching method to general pursuit of excellence...a must read." ― AZcentral.com, part of the USA Today network

"The Golden Rules is a book for all of us, for all who, like Bob Bowman and Michael Phelps, have a goal in mind and understand that it will not be easy to achieve. It will not come without adversity, it will come with no guarantees, it will require daily dedication, devotion and discipline. It will require change and adaptation during all life." ― swimillustrated.pro

"Make room for a pride of place gem...This is a book for all and for all seasons" ― Swimvortex.com
