What It Takes to Be #1 : Vince Lombardi on Leadership

What It Takes to Be #1 : Vince Lombardi on Leadership Review

The book, What It Takes To Be #1: Vince Lombardi on Leadership, by Vince Lombardi Jr. is a nonfiction book about leadership. This book's main focus is on Vince Lombardi's leadership philosophy as well as winning. Me being a high school sports player and reading this book, has changed my outlook on how to be a leader and number one. This book teaches you about work ethics and how to lead your team to a victory. This would be a great read for someone starting their own business to someone who wants to just read a book. The values taught in What It Takes To Be #1 are incredible. Loyalty, honor, dedication, motivation and hard work are all skills every person should have or learn. Vince Lombardi Jr. does a great job laying out everything taught in this book into a model or as it is in the book the "Lombardi Rules". Every chapter focuses on a new concept with "rules" then explaining this concept in depth. This provides an extraordinary view on how Coach Lombardi lives his life and how he coached. Throughout the book, quotes pop up that are meaning full to the books concepts such as, "If it is not right, do not do it. If it is not true, do not say it." The pros in this book are that it helps you become a better winner, the concepts are well modeled, it shows how great Vince Lombardi was at being a leader, and it will make people better people. I would most definitely recommend this book for any occasion. To be honest, I believe there are no cons in this book, but I wish it was a little less confusing. Other than that, the book What It Takes To Be #1 is a phenomenal book to read.
