The Man Watching: A Biography of Anson Dorrance, the Unlikely Architect of the Greatest College Sports Dynasty Ever
Dorrance emboldens his players in his pregame talks, constantly reminding them that UNC's mission is not just to defeat its opponents, but to relentlessly sap their will until they can seize on an opportunity to "break" them. Concluding his remarks before a game against Villanova during the 2003 season, he said, "My thrill during our games is the understanding that every team that leaves the field against us knows they were beaten by a greater force. No, not a better team. They ran into a force. They found the center of our chest and it was hard and they couldn't knock us down. So when you're tackling out there today, I want you to throw your body at the girl with such a clattering of bones and gristle that she'll be worried about having a scar from her kneecap to her ankle. I want her wondering, 'If I finish this game, will I ever be able to wear a skirt again?'" Book jacket.

This is an excellent biography that is more than a story about Anson Dorrance. It is an amusing combination of a review of the UNC Woman's Soccer Team, a collection of motivational and leadership techniques for women and men, a powerful example of the way passion can influence outcomes, and the founding and maintenance of a living dynasty.
