            I live overseas and sent this to my dad for Father's Day. He is a sports fan and coached me through 3 different sports as a kid. He called me later to say that the gift touched him so much that he cried. Can't comment on the contents of the book not having seen it but no complaints.

                          I have not opened the book. I left it in the plastic wrap but read a number of the reviews. It does look like a nice book. My godson became a father in the last year and this was his first father's day. I have not yet given him the book but based on its outer appearance, reviews, sample selections that I read, I will be proud to give him this gift.

                            Purchased for my husband for our anniversary... we are newly pregnant so it was a perfect gift.
                            He loves sports and only reads for practical reasons, not much for pleasure... but he can't put this one down! Lots of good tidbits of advice and easy to read.

                                    Being a dad is kind of like coaching. You teach your kids skills, provide guidance, and want them to win in life. This colorful collection of quotes from some of the greatest coaches of all time provides some great wisdom to help Dad stay on his A game. Would you gift it to a special father-to-be, new daddy, or long-time proud papa?
