Great book, quick listen

This book is so much better than what the title suggests. I did not want to stop listening. Loved the stories about Michael Phelps . Bowman telling MP family to start planning and preparing for the future because MP, at 11 y.o was going be an Olympic champion was going to do things that no other swimmer can do . Inspiring story. By following his rules, he shows the rest of us how to succeed in our goals. Great examples and explanations.

Great book and great message

Loved it! I am a swim coach as well and I have much the same vision as Bob Bowman. This book has helped reinvigorate my vision. Thank you Bob for putting this book out there for coaches like me.
