Summary

'I saw men under pressure. I saw men succeed and more men fail. I always wondered where the difference lay.'

In an inspirational, funny and thought-provoking new book, The Secret Footballer teams up with The Secret Psychologist to crack the secrets of success and share with us the tricks and tips that keep the top players at the top of their game. Exploring the winning mindset from confidence to concentration, exposing the successes, the failures and the frauds, this book will shock and entertain. And while most of us will never dribble like Messi or strike like Suarez, we can learn to think like them.

What separates the good from the truly great players? How do football managers get the best out of their team? How do you come back from a crushing defeat to win?

How To Win is the thinking fan’s handbook for those who want to win. At football or at life.

Interesting insights

Interested in football, and the psychology behind it, then this is worth a listen. One warning, don't give it to your kids, the language is at times obscene which spoilt the book for me hence not giving it 5 stars

TSF hates Michael Dawson!

What did you like most about How To Win: Lessons from the Premier League?

The way it take psychology and incorporates it within football is genius and makes it easy to understand for any football fan.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Despite the serious nature of the book there were some genuinely light hearted moments and great stories which the narrator puts across brilliantly

*****Footballers attention*****

If you're a footballer at any level looking for an edge this is the book for you. It's packed with valuable pieces of information that will change how you see things and effect your mindset going into a performance, packed with jokes and anecdotes so it's not boring, it's definitely worth it's weight in gold.

Interesting, insightful with dash of football

Would you listen to How To Win: Lessons from the Premier League again? Why?

If it's from the same author then maybe no, I've already read a book on the history of the Premiere League and I'm not sure if TSF would add much to that. It would probably be at the bottom of my wishlist.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

A couple of parts went into gret detail and left me thinking where it was going, but I'm not so sure you could remove them to make it more enjoyable.

What about Damian Lynch’s performance did you like?

Excellent, read as though he was TSF himself.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me think.

wasn't sure what to expect

I've purchased many books on related subject matter, many disappoint, but this provided great insights.
