In these pages, you'll hear Bo's distinctive voice as he shares the principles he applied on the football field and in the locker room to create a football dynasty, and he'll tell you how you can apply his insights to any leadership role. His words will educate, motivate, and inspire-just as the man himself did every day.

User Review  - Anna - Goodreads

What a wonderful read! Such a simplistic way of conveying fundamentals of leadership. I felt like I was watching a documentary at the same time and it was so incredible to learn more about this man. I realize now I knew very little about him when I attended his memorial in the Big House in 2006. Read full review
