The famed Michigan football coach offers lessons on being an effective leader and manager, gleaned from years of shaping one of the nation's winningest college teams. A better voice could not have been found to drive home his points. John Mayer's gravelly yet clear tone enthusiastically invokes the mantras the coach prescribes for leadership success: Be passionate about your job; seek a mentor, not money, when starting out; respect and listen to your people; don't hold grudges; and take pride in what you do. Key points are repeated with a musical backdrop at the end of sections--these summaries are very helpful. Of course, there are football anecdotes, but none that a nonfan won't understand. An interesting interview with coauthor Bacon concludes the book. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
