As someone who works with college athletic departments and coaches around the country, I know the type of authors and speakers they trust and look to for leadership skills, and Jamy Bechler is in that category. His coaching background is the perfect foundation for the advice he is giving to athletes, their parents, and the coaches who coach them. Coach Bechler is a go-to resource for leadership.  I definitely recommend his book to coaches.

Games are not always determined by X's and O's.  Your headaches as a coach are probably not always caused by a lack of talent.  In fact, the majority of your time and energy is probably related to non-basketball issues.  The better your team leadership and the stronger character that each of your players has will most likely allow your team to more easily reach its' potential.
