Anson Dorrance is THE COACH when it comes to soccer. Too bad he wasn't handling the men's world cup and we would have been playing Argentina. This book lays the ground work for what it takes to become successful. It isn't always the best talent - but it is always someone who starts by having the passion to do the best they can. The rest - along with hard work - will follow. Success has no secret formula... Natural ability, hard work, the ability to focus and a coach that can direct that talent, hard work and focus in a winning way. He hasn't become the winning-est coach in the history of soccer by pulling punches.
This is a wonderful book about soccer and training, and the mental toughness girls possess that will help them all through life. This book will also help any parent who struggles with the proper involvement level with a soccer-daughter, and the reinforcement needed to help make the correct choices as she evolves with the game of soccer.

This book also gives extraordinary attention to the evolution of leadership roles for females, and the developement of these leadership skills in all young women.

There were hundreds of times i wanted to read passsages or paragraphs to each of my soccer-daughters after i was brought to near tears by the passages of empowerment and success for female athletes.
My 12-yr-old daughter loves UNC Women's soccer and Anson Dorrance. She read this book and has since copied and posted the training schedules that were in the appendix of the book. I liked the book because it had such a positive influence on her. I'm able to remind her some of the example stories that were used in the book to help her.
This book should be required reading for any top level soccer program.....his insight and observations into everyday workouts and player performance are top shelf. I read it in 3 days time and am currently reading it again....It has become my #1 reference on women (girls) soccer. I am currently a CA State "D" licensed coach. I have coached High School Girls Varsity Soccer and been club trainer for EL Camino Real S.C and their girls soccer program. I have been pounding the team Chemistry and Dynamic foundation for years.....thanks for being a supporter and innovator to the cause......
If you coach, this is a must read. If you coach women, this should already be on your shelf. If you coach womens soccer, I'm sure you've read it a dozen times. But if you're a parent or a player you may have missed this one. Dorrance is arguably the best in the business regardless of sport and there's not one thing he's touched that is shoddy. This book is a must-read, and I recommend you follow it up with "The Man Watching".
If you are not into soccer this book is still a great read. It shows the 'new school' way to coach, by inspiration and competition! So many successful coaches are moving away from the 1940-1970's military model of coaching and to this new inspiring coaching style. I highly recommend this book for insight into how to successfully coach a program in this millennium!
If youbare looking for an amazing read for you female soccer player this is it.
Wonderful book. I was inspired, and I don't even play soccer. Much of it applies to anything you do in life.
