Excellent Story of Bill Parcells
The reader quickly realizes that football meant life to Bill Parcells. He explains later in the book that he sacrificed his family for football, moving them every few years to move up to a new school and greater responsibility as a coach.
One of the things I really appreciated was the inside look at scouting, contract negotiations, deciding upon football schemes, and more. This was about the man, but it was also about many other people who have surrounded Parcells over the years.
We learn that Parells was a driven man, an A Type personality when it came to coaching, but a man who had insecurities and made many mistakes within his family, with friends and as a coach. He made mistakes by ruining many relationships because he could not make decisions.
Whether you like or dislike Parcells, I believe you will gain a greater appreciation for the man and what it takes to be a success in the NFL. I Highly Recommend “Parcells: A Football Life!”
I received this book free of charge from Blogging for Books in exchange for my unbiased review.
