From the Back Cover:

For everyone who has heard the beloved whistle at the end of a grueling practice, only to eagerly await the next, Coach is a treasure trove of insights and wisdom from the mouths of those we cherish, seen through the eyes of those we admire most. This book offers the reflections of twenty-five notable authors and writers who reveal their experiences, both good and bad, with the athletic coaches who changed and influenced their lives, irrevocably. Now including a new preface by David Duchovny, this collection celebrates those special people whose inspiration and influence make us believe that we are greater than the sum of our parts.

"The really great coaches engage their players in a quest to be the best. In the right player-coach relationship, a quiet `well done' can go a long way. These individual stories taken together form a narrative of value that shows us the powerful reward of vision, hard work, and the belief that together we can be something bigger and better than if we never listened to, learned from, or engaged with the people we encounter in our lives." -- from the Foreword by Bill Bradley
