The parallels between winning in American football and winning in life are striking. In football, you must prepare fully for each upcoming game. In life, success also requires preparing extensively. In this second edition of her book, Jennifer A. Garrett, an executive coach and attorney with extensive corporate experience, dissects football and insightfully details how readers can leverage the game’s lessons to win big in life. Garrett says she knows “football inside and out.” She clearly has vast knowledge, though you might not always concur with her opinions. For example, giving credit to perseverance and practice, she believes talent isn’t what makes the difference between average football players and superstars, yet anyone who played against Bo Jackson, Lawrence Taylor, Randy Moss or Jim Brown might disagree. Putting such entertaining, sports-fan tailgate debates aside, getAbstract recommends Garrett’s informative, motivational ideas to all those who believe American football demonstrates a lot about how to succeed.
In this summary, you will learn
- What life lessons you can learn from American football;
- Why teamwork – and teammates – are important; and
- Why you need a smart playbook.
