While the content is excellent for coaches and athletes, these lessons can certainly be applied to the game of life, with lessons in leadership, people skills, innovation, teamwork and more (all of which are important beyond sports).
Not only are the lessons brilliantly told by stories and examples, there are practical applications to conclude each chapter to drive home the points.
For me, this book is part philosophy and part a guidebook for winning. I read the entire book in just a few days and I view this as a book that I'll consistently revisit to remind and reinforce the lessons. I was already a huge fan of Dr. Connolly with his innovative and ground-breaking book (Game Changer) and now 59 lessons comes along to build to his amazing body of work. While completely different from Game Changer, it's equally as valuable.
Once again, we can learn a lot from the world's best athletes, coaches, and leaders. You'll find countless insights and takeaways in this book (just a few examples of some of my favorite chapters: You Only Compete Against Yourself, The 9 Most Used Words In Sports, Burn The Boats, The Final Lesson, and so more to be honest...)
Fantastic resource for all and I highly recommend it!
If you want to learn from the best...this is your book.
