Critic Reviews

"This intriguing collection of essays will remind anyone who's ever been coached that it can be a powerful experience. Coaches come in all sorts of flavors. The gruff and the kind appear here, as do the wise and the foolish, the encouraging and the destructive, and some in whom lots of these qualities and inclinations are curiously mixed. What the coaches share, at least for remarkable collection of writers chronicling the coaching dodge, is that they are unforgettable." (Bill Littlefield, host of National Public Radio's Only a Game)
"A superlative book.... The stories in this anthology are, by turns, funny, wise, poignant, and always inspirational.... Coach features an all-star roster of writers who take great joy in writing about the coaches who shaped their lives.... This is a book you will cherish." (ESPN)
"Coaches - after parents, offspring, siblings, religious leaders, teachers, and rulers - are the most important being on earth. Good ones can change your world. Bad ones, too. From E.M. Swift's crusty, old Frank Ward to Christine Brennan's protective Miss O. - the whistle-tooters in Coach prove the point again and again: coaches REALLY matter." (Rick Telander, author of Heaven Is a Playground)
