About this title
Former Sports Illustrated senior writer Tim Crothers took a year off to write a book; that year became a five-year odyssey chronicling one of the most successful coaches in the history of sports. The Man Watching reveals, for the first time, the story of the man, Anson Dorrance, who built the University of North Carolina soccer program that Sports Illustrated hailed in 2003 as "The Greatest College Sports Dynasty Ever." Dorrance, in 2004, was named one of the top 25 coaches of the past 25 years by an expert panel at ESPN.From the Back Cover:
"I am so proud to have played to Anson and to be a Tar Heel. The Man Watching is a rare look behind the scenes at everything it takes to coach and play at the highest level, but to me it's more about what Anson has done to coach all of us so well in life."
-- Mia Hamm, International Soccer Star
"Anson Dorrance's story is one of the most fascinating to ever come along in American sports. And Tim Crothers is the perfect writer to tell it."
-- Rick Reilly, Sports Illustrated
"The story of one of the winningest coaches in history, this powerful book takes you on a journey of strength, courage, and leadership. It's a great read for anybody aspiring to be the best in sports, business, or whatever their chosen field."
-- Dr. Stephen Covey, Best-Selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
"Anson has built a dynasty that has no comparison and Tim Crothers has written a book equally extraordinary, chronicling this pioneering coach and his remarkable teams with a depth of knowledge and insight that I believe only Anson and Tim could bring."
-- Dean Smith, Legendary UNC basketball coach
"This book isn't about a great women's soccer coach, it's about a great coach, period. Anyone who aspires to a leadership role can learn form Anson's innovative style and approach."
-- Pete Carroll, Southern California football coach
"Anson Dorrance is masterful in using both creativity and intensity to develop the competitive potential of his players. This book is full of captivating stories about all the steps and even missteps Anson has taken in producing a consistently successful record that may never be equaled. Needless to say, Anson's story is full of useful insights and lessons about our wonderful game."
-- Juergen Klinsmann, head coach of the '06 German World Cup team
