Publisher's Summary

Amazon's top two soccer-coaching books have been combined to create one amazing audiobook! Soccer iQ Vol. 1 is an Amazon best seller and an NSCAA Soccer Journal Top 5 Book of the Year! Football.com rated these books number one and number two in its list of the Top 14 Soccer Books for Players and Coaches!

In a world saturated with books about how to coach soccer, Dan Blank finally gives players two books on how to think it. Standing on two decades of collegiate coaching experience, Blank has cataloged soccer's most common mistakes and provides simple, connect-the-dots solutions to help players solve their soccer problems.

Soccer iQ is soccer's first textbook for players; an almanac of smarter soccer decisions intended to flatten out the learning curve. It covers everything from hunting rebounds to the value of the toe-ball; from playing in the rain to the world's dumbest foul. Blank tells his story from the familiar and humorous voice of a coach who has endured years of stress at the hands of his players. Written in plain-spoken language, Soccer iQ is an easy listen and a quick fix to the most common, yet critically important soccer problems. Vol. 2 picks up where Vol. 1 left off, providing even more valuable soccer nuggets for aspiring players.

Incredible books

Dan Blank is so good at taking stuff that experienced players and coaches know and putting into words that take that knowledge to a whole new level, almost motivational. I coach high school boys and will definitely have my boys read this during this offseason and throughout the season to help get us to that next level. Can't say enough good things about this book series! GET IT! It will definitely be worth your time and money

very helpful to players as well as coaches

I'm just a casual player and a lover of the sport, so I like learning more about it. this gave me a coaches perspective which is very different from a player's perspective. a player sees the battle, but the coach sees the war! great little tips that could improve performance of the players and saves you years. his observations simplify the game for the players. if you pay attention to the details he outlines, it will make you a much more efficient and valuable player. I've been watching and playing soccer for 30+ years and I can tell you he has some very good common sense ideas to share here. enjoy!

Not Great for Audible

I love the information in this book, however it is much better in physical form. You can get the diagrams free online, but makes it difficult when listening while driving.

Good info but hard to follow, bad attitude

What made the experience of listening to Soccer iQ (2 Book Series) the most enjoyable?

this audibook gives great info about the technical aspects of soccer. Although some of this language is a bit hard to follow. he uses some jargon to describe the scenarios and practice drills that I'm not used to, being a person who only had a "coach" for 1-3 years during school. the language makes it are hard to imagine without a visual, and when I'm listening to an audiobook, I just dont feel like having to reference a diagram, especially when I'm driving. Also, I found his arrogant and condescending attitude to be really unprofessional and appalling. and namecalling like "dummy" has no place in a book that is meant to teach. the narrator's sarcastic tone does a very good job of sounding like an ass. On the flipside, I love that this book uses "she" instead of "he" as the default gender, because as a female I get tired of hearing HE all the time. so thank you for daring to go against the grain and use SHE (of course, if HE was used by a female coach it would have been a bit odd). I enjoyed Dan's other audiobook for inspiration, following listening to this.
