You may not get this since the blog is a little past, but I love to read and anytime I get my hands on a list like this, I have to see which ones I have missed and I can't help but recommend a few as well. :) I have quite a few - we actually did a book study on the Energy Bus with my teaching staff this semester and will be sharing the the Soup by Jon Gordon next semester (great book on leadership and providing the right ingredients as the stirrers of the soup). A couple that weren't on the list but might be worth your time... 1. The Smart Take from the Strong - Pete Carril 2. Values of the Game - Bill Bradley (used to give this to all my seniors when they graduated) 3. The Man Watching - Anson Dorrance (TREMENDOUS READ - He taught Toughness before Jay Bilas came along - haha) 4. The Politics of Coaching - Carl Pierson (I gave this to all my coaches last year) Thanks for the list - I have something to buy for Christmas now instead of gift cards! :) Nep

Coach Stein, you may enjoy "Divided Loyalties" by Coach Hurley which is about raising & coaching Danny & Bobby. Coach Hurley also put out a new book, "Chasing Perfect" which is great. Thanks for what you do. I'm new to your blog, but I must say, it's one of the best I've seen!

Alan thank you for sharing your book list. Definitely want to read Toughness by Jay Bilas. A must read is Lone Survivor. I believe it is coming out in the movies soon. Bob Knight gave this book to read to Kobe Bryant before 2008 Olympics. Once I started it was hard to stop reading.

I suggest The Miracle at St. Anthonys about Bob Hurley Sr & one of his teams/seasons. A great insight on how he's become the winningest coach in HS basketball.

A lot of people miss out on reading or learning because they are not able to make time for it, but they don't see the investment for the future. By learning and growing as a person you are investing in yourself to be a better person in the future. Thanks for the list of article, I am going to have to try and read as many as I can.

Have you read Double Goal Coach and InSideOut Coaching? For athletes I really like Elevating Your Game:Becoming a Triple Impact Competitor.
