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.

Soccer iQ is a must have for every soccer athlete!

I absolutely love Soccer iQ! I read Soccer iQ several times before finding the audiobook option. I was so excited when I discovered it in audiobook. I listen to this audiobook all the time while traveling to and from my teams soccer trainings and matches. Dan, thank you for writing this book and choosing Don as your narrator.

Enriching for a Regular Player

The tips given were practical and down to earth. Some can be applied to the Sunday league games that I play. This book enriched my knowledge of soccer!

Love, love, love...

Words alone can’t express how much I love this series by Dan Blank. My daughter has learned so much from these books! They’ve created some great “natural” discussion between us about opportunities for take her game to the next level while also acknowledging the things she’s already doing well. In short, Dan has a wonderful way of distilling important soccer “know how” into applicable bite-sized nuggets of goodness that we can appreciate! Enjoy!

Detail oriented

Coach Blank uses practical detail oriented scenarios to improve players ability to play the game. His scenarios are often accompanied by advice for coaches on how to implement the lessons during practice.

Good listen

Full of useful info. Lots of things I do already and so many more things to take on board. To get the most out of this would probably be to have in paper and annotate the book and make a plan. That said that’s all possible doing after listening, just not whilst driving!
