The Education of a Coach
Pulitzer Prize-winner David Halberstam's bestseller takes you inside the football genius of Bill Belichick for an insightful profile in leadership.
Bill Belichick's thirty-one years in the NFL have been marked by amazing success--most recently with the New England Patriots. In this groundbreaking book, David Halberstam explores the nuances of both the game and the man behind it. He uncovers what makes Bill Belichick tick both on and off the field.
"Halberstam does for the three-time Super Bowl winner what Moneyball did for the Oakland A's Billy Beane."
"If you want to learn about schooling and allegiance and leadership and, most of all, football, by all means--slip inside the sweatshirt."
"Halberstam takes the classic sports-bio formula--one stellar performer's rise to the pinnacle of American sport--and transforms it into a nuance-rich story of individual triumph and social history."
"In describing the triumph of 'an unadorned man,' a coach without artifice, Halberstam has created a tale of excellence."
