- How Great Coaches Make Great Teams
- By: Seth Davis
- Narrated by: Mark Deakins
- Length: 9 hrs and 43 mins
What makes a coach great? How do great coaches turn a collection of individuals into a coherent “us”? Seth Davis, one of the keenest minds in sports journalism, has been thinking about that question for 25 years. It’s one of the things that drove him to write the definitive biography of college basketball’s greatest coach, John Wooden, Wooden: A Coach’s Life. But John Wooden coached a long time ago. The world has changed, and coaching has, too, tremendously.
A Couple of Bad Chapters

Avgerage Coaching Book
Basically it was short biographies of “successful” coaches. Some might like that but I think it could’ve been better to do less biographies and go more in depth with others.
It wasn’t a bad book by any means and I certainly took things away from it but it’s also not a book I was wowed by.
