I know we have had similar posts on here before but as we have added new members on a regular basis, I thought it would be good to renew this, and link it to World Book Day
All I am asking is for you to reply with a quick post please on what book you are reading, and/or what is your 'must read' book
My favourite book of the moment is Michael Rosen's "How to Be your Child's (and Your Own) Best Teacher
Professionally it has to be "With Winning in Mind" by Lanny Bassham
Personally, its "The Snowman"
Steven Sylvester 'Detox your Ego',
I like all the little 'Stop: Look: Listen' bits designed to have you reflecting.
I have to admit, I don't think I've come across a book that I'd recommend to anyone as a 'must read' just yet, although I'm still searching! I really enjoyed Clive Woodward 'Winning' because of the way he thought differently and it prompted me to be more thoughtful about what I do. So I'd say that's one of my top recommendations.
I'm currently reading 'Winners' by Alistair Campbell and finding it to be a great read - big emphasis on having a plan and sticking to it, always being consistent (obviously as a political this is something they 'should' do).
His motto is O.S.T = What's your 'Objective' (e.g. win), What's your 'Strategy' (e.g. have better basic skills than any other team), What are the 'Tactics' (e.g. practice hard devoting plenty of time at the basics, deploy them effectively in the games).
I'll certainly be adding the books suggested here and also I've been recommended 'The manager' by Arsene Wenger as well as the little heavier 'The art of war' - what are peoples' thoughts on these?
Hi Brett - thanks for the comments.
Agree with Clive Woodward's book- very good read around his way of thinking, You might also like 'The House of Lancaster' by Neil Squires covering the concepts employed by Stuart Lancaster.
I've got Winners as a book to read (along with a huge pile next to my bed) - I will certrainly get it based on our comments.
I've been at the Level 4 conference this week and Christine Nash from the University of Edinburgh has often mentioned The Art of War to me....but it does seem a bit more 'heavy'....
