Publisher's Summary

The path to success is never easy. In Flip the Script you will learn the life-changing lessons of leadership and determination Coach O discovered on the road to a championship. Ed Orgeron, head coach of the record-breaking national champion LSU Tigers football team, tells the inspiring story of reversing the team's fortunes and culture, as well as his own remarkable leadership journey from disappointment and setback to the apex of college sports.

The storybook football season for the LSU Tigers in 2019 was the stuff of legend: a team with recently unmet expectations became the undefeated national champion with a Heisman trophy-winning transfer quarterback under the leadership of a coach whose previous coaching stops had been disappointments. Yet that coach, Ed Orgeron, had turned everything around. He flipped the script, transforming a program that lately had not reached its potential into a team of unprecedented dominance. Flip the Script is the story of how it happened, with lessons for anyone who wants to succeed. 

Telling the story of his own journey that culminated in the Cinderella season, Orgeron highlights the traits he learned are necessary for success:an ability and willingness to learn from mistakes,the necessity of perseverance,recognizing and focusing on what you’re truly good at,building unity, and overcoming hardship.

The road to success is never easy, as Ed Orgeron's life reveals. But his life also shows that with determination and a willingness to learn from experience, your trajectory can change - your script can be flipped - and you can achieve more than you ever dreamed.

Reliving greatness

The story is 5-star, for sure. No LSU fan will ever forget that season. All the stars aligned and it truly was the perfect season. But I wish Coach O had narrated the story! Loved the ability to relive the season through this book. Geaux Tigers!

Give us a movie!

This literally sounds like it could be a classic sports movie. It doesn’t get any better than this story as far as a sport’s success story. 10/10 would recommend even if you’re not a LSU fan.

Great book. I loved Coach O's authenticity.

I loved coach O's willingness to share his life story. as a coach who is transitioning to another school and starting the program from scratch there were great nuggets of wisdom embedded in this book.

If you’re a fan

This is a very interesting behind the scenes look at Ed O and LSU. Coach takes you through his entire career and through his time as HC at LSU.

Decent not great

Story is well written and you get a little about coach O’s background but not much new here even for the casual fan. Also, as Coach O seems to blame those around him, even when he is saying put it on me, I’m left liking him a little less than I did before.
