Rugby league's greatest coach gives the ultimate verdict on what it takes to be a winner.
"The individual who is mistake-free is also probably sitting around doing nothing . . . And that's a big mistake." - Jack Gibson
Jack Gibson tells us about his experiences over forty years as a player, coach and mentor. This book features material from his diaries and scrapbooks (which include quotes and opinions from some of sport's greatest thinkers) and a collection of yarns, many of them outrageously funny, about football and footballers such as Artie Beetson, Peter Sterling and Mick Cronin - some of the biggest names from the recent 'golden days' of rugby league.
From leadership to mateship, Gibson reveals how he motivates his players, the value of hard work and the necessity for honesty. He discusses the importance of perfect preparation and self-discipline, and how the values that are essential for a coach can be applied to business and family life as well.
