Publisher's Summary

Amazon's top two soccer-coaching books have been combined to create one amazing audiobook! Soccer iQ Vol. 1 is an Amazon best seller and an NSCAA Soccer Journal Top 5 Book of the Year! Football.com rated these books number one and number two in its list of the Top 14 Soccer Books for Players and Coaches! 

In a world saturated with books about how to coach soccer, Dan Blank finally gives players two books on how to think it. Standing on two decades of collegiate coaching experience, Blank has cataloged soccer's most common mistakes and provides simple, connect-the-dots solutions to help players solve their soccer problems. 

Soccer iQ is soccer's first textbook for players; an almanac of smarter soccer decisions intended to flatten out the learning curve. It covers everything from hunting rebounds to the value of the toe-ball; from playing in the rain to the world's dumbest foul. Blank tells his story from the familiar and humorous voice of a coach who has endured years of stress at the hands of his players. Written in plain-spoken language, Soccer iQ is an easy listen and a quick fix to the most common, yet critically important soccer problems. Vol. 2 picks up where Vol. 1 left off, providing even more valuable soccer nuggets for aspiring players. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great for parents, players, and coaches.

My 9 year old daughter and I just finished listening to Soccer IQ volumes 1 and 2. I purchased the books for myself so that I could have a better understanding of what her coaches were teaching her. When she found out I was listening to a soccer book, it became the only thing she would want to hear when we were in the car. It was great to have a book aimed at female players but even better watching her pick a challenge to work on in different games.

Wish I had read this sooner ...

Wish I had read this when I started coaching 15-years ago. The author reinforced many things I had figured out on my own and provided many more new ideas. I am now suggesting this "Audible" book to every new coach I meet, and new and seasoned players.

great insights for athletes and coaches

I'm glad that Coach Dan Blank took the time to collect these simple but often overlooked insights. It's no wonder this book is a best seller in the Soccer genre. My only word of caution is that it may not be good for pre-teen readers as some of the language is geared toward a high school to college aged audience. But the lessons can definitely be applied to pre-teen athletes.

Good listen

Full of useful info. Lots of things I do already and so many more things to take on board.
To get the most out of this would probably be to have in paper and annotate the book and make a plan. That said that’s all possible doing after listening, just not whilst driving!
