Item description for Don't Call Me Coach: A Lesson Plan for Life by Phil Martelli...

At last, those of us not lucky enough to hear Phil Martelli in person can now draw inspiration from his book. Don t Call Me Coach presents him at his compelling and captivating best, as he finally puts into print the mantra of his memorable speeches. In fact one of America s most colorful, outspoken, and successful coaches, Martelli compresses his three decades of experience into a ten-point lesson plan for life that will benefit anyone, no matter what the challenges may be. We are all coaches, he insists, and each of us represents a book of unique experiences others can learn from. We are defined not by what we do, but by who we are. Yet we should not take ourselves seriously, but, rather, what we do. And so, even though he was named college basketball s Coach of the Year in 2004, this quintessentially regular Philly guy prefers not to be addressed as Coach Martelli. If you will, just call me Phil. . . . This book is my conversation with you. This unpretentious tone pervades Don t Call Me Coach as distinctively different from most life-lessons books as Phil Martelli s spontaneous HawkTalk is from other coaches tightly scripted TV shows. Martelli s experiences within his own extended family often funny, sometimes poignant, and always instructive form a warmly personal background to everything he spells out in his book. Having turned down far more lucrative offers to coach at mega-universities, Martelli enters another new season at the helm of the storied men s basketball program at Philadelphia s Saint Joseph s University. As he puts it, You have to know where your heart is. These expressions of his heart and mind will resonate in yours, no matter where you went to school, and whether you re an avid sports fan or not. As Phil concludes, The Hawk will never die! is more than the slogan of one specific university. It represents the will to excel, to never give in an approach to life we can all share.

Reviews - What do customers think about Don't Call Me Coach: A Lesson Plan for Life?

One of the best story-tellers  Jan 5, 2008
Don't Call Me Coach: A Lesson Plan for Life
Over the years we have watched Phil Martelli develop into one of the best story-tellers around. His presentations are fun, his messages very worthwhile. When working with Pete Nelson on the "Jameer" book, I had an opportunity to see Phil's intelligence and attention to detail first hand. This continues in this book and reinforces how lucky we who have been part of Philadelphia-area basketball have been.
He's Better in Person  Dec 12, 2007
I had the chance to meet Phil Martelli in person and hear his inspirational speech. For that one hour he was excellent, very funny and witty with alot of good advice. This inspired me to purchase his book. Though the book captures all the ideas of the in-person speech it is not quite up to par to having him in the room and it does tend to drag in parts. For that reason I didn't give it the full five stars.

The book has a lot of good lessons (we are all coaches and teams) that don't require an intricate knowledge of basketball or to be a sports fan to appreciate his advice. A decent quick read.
An easy read with great messages  Sep 19, 2007
I recommend this book for any parent, coach, business leader, teacher - or as Martelli says - everyone - since there is a coach in all of us.

This must read book is not just for the sports lover. Martelli shares his own life lessons as a coach and offers a balanced view for helping people achieve their best. I've bought a book for my teenage children to read.
