Synopsis: Think of the greatest coach or teacher you ever had... what was their most important lesson?

If you're like most people, it may be something like "It doesn't take talent to hustle", or "Persistence pays off", or just "Be yourself". That's because the teachers who really touch us, and change our lives, are the ones who teach us more than just the curriculum, or the skills, or the tricks. They teach us about life, and about character. 

Dean Bailey, or Bails as everyone knew him, was widely regarded as one of those coaches. 

Paddy Steinfort worked side by side with Bails, a relationship first forged during their time living together as they transitioned to a new team. But when Bails was diagnosed with cancer their relationship dove deeper than ever, as they worked to compile one final gameplan for learning and leadership, from a coach who can teach us a lot about life.

---

Breakfast with Bails is the unforgettable true story of a man committed to making others great, even in his final days. In these pages, you are offered the rare opportunity to step inside Bails hospital room, take a seat beside his bed, and listen deeply as he shares the life lessons that sport can give to us all.

The book features: 

  • The true story about Dean Bailey, his life and his legacy. 
  • Never before heard details of his most controversial times in the game.
  • 3 Key Lessons for Leaders, with behind the scenes stories that bring them to life. 
Infused with practical insights and life changing lessons, Breakfast With Bails will inspire you to be a better leader, manager, mentor, teacher, parent or friend to those that matter most.

From the Author: Praise From Coaches
 
"Bails really shone out from the pack. He could see people from a different point of view. His generous heart worked tirelessly to find the good in his players... he believed in them, he cared for them, gave them his time & knowledge. They succeeded. We succeeded." --Mark Williams, 2004 Premiership coach, Port Adelaide FC
 
"The memories I have of Bails will stay with me forever. The biggest thing I learnt from him: he had empathy for all of his players. This book will give you an understanding of a truly great man." --Brad Green, Assistant Coach, North Melbourne FC
 
Praise From Players
 
"This book is a must read - Bails was a legend, a unique character with great humour, and he could always tell a good story. He really cared about us, and I'll always remember the things he taught me, both about football but even more as a person. Paddy Steinfort has done an amazing job!" --Taylor Walker, Captain, Adelaide FC
 
"Breakfast With Bails brought back so many amazing memories of this very humorous and extremely caring bloke. I'm so glad his views on life and coaching will live on through this book." --Rory Sloane, 2013 Best & Fairest, Adelaide FC

"Bails had a special way of influencing others with calming, balanced approaches to life and football. He always challenged us too look outside the box, to see things in a different way. These are lessons I will carry forever." --Sam Jacobs, 2 x Showdown Medallist, Adelaide FC

"Bails was not just one of the best coaches I've ever had, but one of the great men you will ever meet. He simplified things for me in a time in my career that I needed his guidance. The best times spent with Bails were outside the club... Some of those conversations and laughs had out on the balcony are things that will stay with me for a very long time. I still think back today to the things he thought me. I miss you mate!" --Bernie VinceBest & Fairest at both Adelaide FC and Melbourne FC
