Simply the Best delivers rare insights on success straight from the hearts and minds of winning coaches Scotty Bowman, Marc Crawford, Jacques Demers, Clare Drake, Ken Hitchcock, Mike Keenan, Dave King, George Kingston, Andy Murray, Rodger Neilson, Pat Quinn and Brian Sutter. These world-renowned hockey visionaries, recognized as some of the greatest coaches in the game, talk about what it takes to be a champion and the strategies that have made them successful.

Each one of us is a coach, whether we are raising children, coaching a youth sports team, being the project team leader at work, teaching students in a classroom or managing employees in a corporation. Simply the Best makes it clear that these coaches' mastered principles of success are also relevant off the ice, so that people in all walks of life can win their own Stanley Cups.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Hockey Coaches, For Life Coaches Sept. 5 2009
This is not just a hockey book, although for hockey coaches, how better than to sit down with the best coaches North American hockey has ever seen and learn strategy and philosophy. How important is motivation, how do you build a team identity or a winning tradition, and are you willing to sacrifice your values for a win? As a businessman and a hockey fan, I found great insights in this title that apply on the ice, in the dressing room as well as in the cubicle, in the boardroom and on the street. For hockey fans and hockey coaches, this is a must. For life coaches, and we are all life coaches, there is much in here for you as well. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
