I say surprisingly because it's a book, read to me, about shooting video. I assumed the physical book would be better (pictures, diagrams, etc) however the audible version is great and I learned a lot. The author is very personable and after listening I feel a friend has given me his best video advice.

Pete Carroll is one of the most successful coaches in football today. As the head coach at USC, he brought the Trojans back to national prominence, amassing a 97-19 record over nine seasons. Now he shares the championship-winning philosophy that led USC to seven straight Pac-10 titles.

This is a great book for any coach I coach hockey but the philosophes taught in this book can apply to any sport.

Pete has a great story about a coach who is fired struggled learn from the other great coach and then revised his philosophy that went on to turn him into a championship coach.

Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.
