    Few people in the history of college sports have been more influential or had a bigger impact than Lou Holtz. Winner of the three national Coach of the Year honors, the only coach ever to lead six different schools to season-ending bowl games, and the ninth-winningest coach in college football history, Holtz is still teaching and coaching, although he is no longer on the gridiron.

    Edward C. Charbonnet says: "An inspiring book - not a football book"
    "great story about an incredibly successful coach"

    Would you listen to Wins, Losses, and Lessons again? Why?

    yes, interesting career


    Did Lou Holtz do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not sure that Lou was the best candidate to read the book.
