It was a tough pill for me to swallow this book, the reason being is I'm a baseball coach at the high school level and do a lot of the no no's the Ripken's talk about in this book. It really opened my eyes up to the fact that I need to make a change in the way I teach and handle my kids, thank you Cal and Bill for your insight and experience into the great game of baseball. I consider myself luck to have read this book while still a young coach. Must read for coaches of baseball or any sport.
