The Best Coaching Book I’ve Ever Read?

Anson Dorrance does not get enough credit. Unfortunatley that may be because he coaches women. His book Training Soccer Champions might just be the best book on coaching I have ever read. How many people know that Dorrance initially took his practice ideas from legendary basketball coach Dean Smith? Certainly not me. This book was a great read that is unfortunately out of print. Have any of you read anything else by Dorrance that might be more readily available? I’m not looking for a bio but rather a coaching book. The points that Dorrance makes in Training Soccer Champions will help any coach in any sport. If you can get a copy, read it.
