Excellent technical over view of the art of pressing in a soccer match. It is easily understood, but it is not for the novice coach or team.

HASH(0xa3f6ea8c) out of 5 stars Gives you more depth in tactics Aug. 8 2006
By David Gustafsson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is suited for coaches who wants to learn more about defensive tactics. It's not a book for beginners although many exercises in this book should, in my opinion, be utilised already in youth soccer to help youngsters understand basic defensive skills.

This book is really good.

Mr. Lucchesi explains what pressing is and why a team should use it. He also explains pressing in the defense zone and in the attacking zone. The book contains a lot of traning exercises whith most of them quite helpful.

The book covers all possible topics of the art of pressing and there are many diagrams and pictures so even though the topic sometimes can be very difficult it can easily be understood through these pictures.

When reading "Pressing" you can sense the professionalism and the knowledge Lucchesi has. The only downside of this book as far as I'm concerned is that it is too short. Only 100 pages on a topic that could easily be written more about.

And maybe he could have written more about how top teams apply Pressing in an effective way. With that, I would have given this book five stars.

Absolutely worth the money.
HASH(0xa760f87c) out of 5 stars Basic Primer and Review on Pressing Aug. 6 2012

It is a good basic primer or review on defensive pressing. It is not a book for a beginner, but it probably does not have enough detail for a more experienced coach.
