Have not finished reading yet. Well written and interesting,. One person found this helpful. The book has a great premise, but the writing manages to ruin it. I wish LaMonte, who is a great agent, would have gotten a good writer to tell his and his clients' stories.
Those interested in football will find this book to be an enlightening book on leadership. All of the rules and points of quality leadership are presented in football terms.
In effect, a head football coach is no different than any other type of business leader. The problems lies in the poor format of the book.
This is a terrific lesson that works in every field--not just on the playing field. HarperCollins Publishers Bolero Ozon. Craig Cunningham rated it liked it Aug 07, He lives in Ohio. LaMonte, formerly a high school and college history teacher for 25 years, began his career as a part-time sports agent, and it wasn't until that he left teaching to become a full-time agent. All of the rules and points of quality leadership are presented in football terms. Most recent customer reviews.
I enjoyed the story of Bob LaMonte. His unlikely rise from high school teacher to sports agent is nothing short of remarkable. His teaching career led him to acquaint himself with the high school's football coach Mike Holmgren. The reader can tell this is an important event in LaMonte's life since he literally retells it in each chapter. Many of Holmgren's assistant went on to head coaching jobs, creating new clients for LaMonte. Some like Holmgren and Gruden have done great things. As alluded to earlier, the concept is interesting but poorly told. So much of the information is continuously repeated that this book could have easily been under pages.
These are problems editors should fix.
But as LaMonte would suggest in the book, he should take responsibility since it is his project. Good idea poor execution on the writing. Ive read one of these with the older coaches and it had much more applicable and original advice than Reid, Gruden and Fox. Should've been lots better.
I wrote a book with Joe Montana and made a football film with Oliver Stone. And I can tell you this: Bob LaMonte is a classic American story, a former high school teacher who now controls the NFL coaching market as an agent much like Leigh Steinberg did with quarterbacks. I was the one to had the pleasure of telling Bob LaMonte all about elite business author Bob Shook, who has written more books than some people have even had a chance to read; the two had crossed paths and it just so happened I knew them both well.
So it was no surprise to see none other than 60 Minutes flashing their new book, Winning the NFL Way, on the screen last weekend. I know first-hand that it is on the desks of anyone who matters in the NFL.
And I expect it to become a must-read for the business community as well, based on Bob Shook's track record. I am just stunned that LaMonte would reveal his trade secrets at such an early age! So if information truly is power you need to catch this one. Unless of course you want the train to pass you by I would recommend this book to anyone. You don't even really have to know about football. It gives you life lessons, as well as football lessons, and business lessons. These lessons are told by Bob LaMonte and the five head coaches he represents.
Unlike many other authors, Bob LaMonte has been up close and personal with these coaches. In order to represent them as an agent he must know them very well. All of these coaches have started in a low profile job environment. In fact three of them had never even had a head coaching job at a high school. In order to go big you must start small.
