Good ideas for beginner and seasoned soccer player

What made the experience of listening to Soccer: Soccer Strategies the most enjoyable?

The narrator made everything sound easy. Also, the strategies in the book were plausible and easy to achieve. Descriptions were excellent and my attention never wavered. I never knew there was so much to playing soccer, but I can see now that it is a highly technical game that requires stamina and thought processes.

What other book might you compare Soccer: Soccer Strategies to and why?

I would compare this soccer book to another Ace McCloud book on golf called Golf Strategies. This book and that one both prepare the player physically and mentally to play the game.

What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have read the book too, and I think Mr. Mackey brings out things you might skip over when reading. He has a good sense of what to emphasize and when to bring out the best in a book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I found the chapter on nutrition very good. Although I do not play soccer, some of my family members do and I was able to prepare meals before the game that helped them to keep up there stamina.

Any additional comments?

This book is good for a beginner and someone who has been playing soccer for years. It touches on just about every aspect of the game from the physical and building stamina, to exercising and working the physical end, to technical issues (the part about being a goalie we found particulary helpful) and preparing mentally. The whole book is essential to the young soccer player for sure and I even learned a great deal from the book.

Lose Weight And Get Healthy With Soccer!

Would you consider the audio edition of Soccer: Soccer Strategies to be better than the print version?

That really depends on your preference and lifestyle. If you're a multitasker and cant find time to sit for a few hours and read a book, then this is absolutely for you!

Any additional comments?

Getting fit and healthy can be fun with team sports! But the difficulty comes in finding people to play with. You could join an adult league, but they expect you to have some prior knowledge of the sport...<br/><br/>Luckily, that's where this audio-book comes in! It will teach you everything from basic rules to sneaky tricks that the pros like to use! Because of this, it's actually perfect for anyone at any level. <br/><br/>So if you have a high-school or college soccer player that might like this, you could give this to them too!

The go-to book for improving your soccer game

Would you consider the audio edition of Soccer: Soccer Strategies to be better than the print version?

Yes I would. I enjoy listening to Joshua Mackey narrate Ace McCloud's books. He has a catching voice that is never tiresome. He keep my interest from beginning to end. He has a clear voice and shows genuine excitement for what he is reading.

What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The excitement and interest in his voice. He does an amazing job with narrating Ace's books. It is easy and convenient for me to listen to the audio version on this book rather then read the book. I am able to listen to this while I am at one of my friend's child's soccer games! I can listen to it in the car or even while jogging.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My reaction to Soccer: Soccer Strategies: The Top 100 Best Ways to Improve Your Soccer Game, was that it is a very well written book on many strategies and helpful tips to help you improve at soccer. If your a soccer player, your going to want to read this book. I am definitely recommending this book to my friends who play soccer or have children who do. I think the will be highly appreciative that I did !

Improve your soccer game now!

Soccer is not an easy sport. As a highschooler who plays the sport, I know that there are so many variables that can keep you from playing your best game. Between what you eat the night before and directly before a game, to how you stretch, what you practice, and what your strategies are, there is a lot of work to be done when playing the game right.

This audiobook surprised me with its informational material on all different topics on the matter. I loved that it mentioned diets and supplements to keep you on your top game, as well as going over the different offensive and defensive positions, and how to strategize in order to play them the best.

All in all, I found this a great purchase-- definitely impressed by the amount of information and knowledge... I would recommend the read; material worth-knowing as a soccer player.

Improve you soccer game now!

I purchased this book after joining an adult coed soccer team. I played in college but had lost touch with the game in the years following. This book really helped me get back into the swing of things and I'm even a better player than I was back then. The tips and strategies to prepare yourself mentally, intelligent and strategic ways to maximize your skills, are amazing and have drastically helped me improve. Theres also a great section about exercising specifically for the game. Great book!

Improve your soccer game in no time

This is another one of those books that I got because even though I'm not trying to be an expert at the game, I can always use some extra tips and tricks when I play with friends and family. I have three grown sons and two still coming up so I try to be good at sports as much as I can. I also like audio books because I'm constantly on the run. If you need a few good tips to playing soccer better, this is the book for you!

Practice And Be Perfect At Soccer!

I love soccer but I have never known the rules of the game and that way I have always shied off from playing the game. With this book now, I see myself becoming a coach and one of the best players and I can actually call my friends for a match something I wouldn't have dared before. This book has great strategies that are easy to understand. Some of this strategies include,mental strategies, concentration,optimism,listening to your gut,resisting fear among others explained in the book. You also get to learn the strategies for playing offense and defensive strategies. In soccer, you have to practice patience and most importantly, never give up! Grab your copy and learn about the best strategies.

Super Soccer Strategies!

As someone who regularly plays soccer I found this book to be a really helpful and informative advice book to improve my game.

The mental strategies that Ace McCloud lays out are very impressive and I learnt a great deal from them. Whether its visualization, relaxation or goal-setting, there is so much here that can help you before you step on the field.

The best part of the book was where each position is given tips and advice. As a striker there was much to learn here, including valuable tips on movement and finishing.

With nutritional/food tips, training exercises and even some fun tricks to practice, this book has everything for a soccer player to help improve there game and is highly recommended!

Understand Soccer and improve your game.

I bought this Soccer strategy audiobook, alongside the ebook because I recently became interested in football/soccer and wanted to understand a bit more about the game and what the players are trying to achieve. In that regard, it was really helpful. I particularly enjoyed the section that went through the various positions that are played across the pitch and discussed strategies for playing well in each position.

Soccer is well written and enthusiastically narrated by Joshua Mackey, and I much preferred this format to reading the book. For those who actually play soccer, the audio gives you an overview of which areas to work on if you want to improve. I think it is most useful for a 'diagnosis' and for a recommendation of action to take in order to raise your game. Once you have worked out the steps you want to take and the habits you want to form you may want to look for a detailed book for that area to help you work on these things further. "Health" by the same author might be a good place to start.

Informative soccer strategy guide

This is a very informative guide that gives you a good background into the game and handy hints and tips on how to perform better when playing. It has a very useful section on improving health and nutrition which although targeted at soccer players can also be applied to most people.
I like how it breaks down the players’ positions and how you can improve in that role. It means that you can skip to the relevant chapter if you want specific advice on your position or to guide others in their position. It has some really useful strategies definitely worth trying and links to a lot of videos you can research to see those techniques and strategies in action.

Excellent Guide in Learning Soccer

Any additional comments?

This audio book is like my instant knight in shining armour! Our teacher gave us homework about baseball and it got me really worried as I had no idea about the sport! I know that there are a lot of materials that can be found online but hey, there’s nothing better than an audio book wherein you don’t have to do anything but listen!<br/><br/>So as I was searching for information about soccer, I stumbled upon this book by Ace. I thought that it has some good information written in the overview section so purchased it and gave it a go. As I was listening, I was also taking a few notes which were really useful! I found it a lot less time consuming and it is really efficient. This is definitely worth one’s time and money!<br/><br/>I am not a sports minded person at all but this one didn’t get me bored and I actually think that it is quite interesting. I successfully submitted my homework the next day and my teacher was quite impressed! Two thumbs up to the author!<br/>
