Bilas the actual circumstance for toughness using the subject areas of trust, preparing, courage, communications, self-evaluation, perseverance, and resilience. And he uses coaches and sportsmen who are worthy role models for his subject, strength: Bill Self, Tom Izzo, Mike Krzyzewski, Grant Mountain, Steve Kerr, and Curtis Strange. Bilas uses himself throughout the book as a moving " toughness-target", freely admitting how he was not necessarily tough enough and has kept growing in this regard.
The stories the author brings to print are not just instructive, many are emotionally memorable and uplifting. The tough aren't always the physically strongest, as noted by the young, tenacious brain-cancer-surviving, fourth grade teacher and her medical doctor who both live " hope" daily.
I am a Clarington, NC native, an ACC basketball fan, Blue Demons fan, Jim Valvano enthusiast, and Dean Smith enthusiast! I remember the 1980s teams of Bilas, Alarie, Henderson, Amaker, and Dawkins, but I never knew how driven and talented the individuals were. Individually, I think is was cool that Mark Alarie only wanted to give attention to the positive, that he would not want to be shown movie of his screw-ups, which Coach K is famous for. Alarie was extremely tough on himself together hugely high self- anticipations.
I liked Jay's conversational style, his sense of humor, and his modesty. Even when he cited his talents or accomplishments, he never exaggerated them. This book will contribute to many, many future successes that normally would never have happened, because individuals and/or teams would never developed the kinds of toughness that this book illustrates and inspires!!, Jay Bilas gives powerful testimony to the real meaning of being tough. A lot more rough and it requires being tough to deal with its challenges. Because a basketball fan, and particularly Duke basketball, I was attracted to the book in large part because I knew something about the author. Through the book, he shows himself to be individual like many of the rest of us, not simply a famous jock who became an outstanding analyst of a fast moving game. The book is a simple read. It tells the truth about what being tough means and the struggles one must endure to achieve it. We all cannot all be nationwide champions, but we can be tough and live a great life at the top our our own game, whatever that may be. I recommend the book., My husband's the polar opposite of me - I'll admit to being a woman not specifically enamoured with watching sports, but my husband lives and dies by how his favorite sports teams are performing! Though I'll sit and watch his favorite college hoops team's online games with him, sometimes he gets so over-the-top excited (which is fun) or angry about bad telephone calls (not so fun), and I've never understood " loving" and " hating" different teams. He's always " hated" (such a strong word! ) Duke much in the same way so many people " hate" his favorite team... sporting a regularly good record seems to be the inspiration for such intensive feelings!
What I do have to at the very least give him some credit for is being able to single out certain players (or former players, as the case may be) - even from " hated" teams - as people of honesty and quality, with The author Bilas being one such person. He so thoroughly enjoyed this guide that as soon as he done it, he passed it along with high advice to my brother-in-law, who instructors a higher school hoops team --- who then bought promptly ordered copies for each and every player on his team, so that will tell you something about the book's inspiring message!
A very inspiring book that was a 5 star " slam-dunk" from both my hubby & brother-in-law., Fantastic book by one the brightest minds covering college basketball today! ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL GO THROUGH by anyone considering expanding their views on the way to get things done!, Bilas do a great job to show how skills and characteristics one can get in a team sports activity translate well into the real world and contribute to success., great book. Bilas is the man. very well written, Good regarding different definitions of toughness., Really informative and realisticsensible with both personal and real world examples. Jay has truly differentiated between true strength and bravado.
