Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Jim Brown coached youth sports for 40 years. Working with 1,000 players, Coach Brown won more than 75 percent of his 400 games, relying solely on positive reinforcement to achieve his dramatic results. On the field, in the locker room, and away from the athletic facilities, he created a learning environment in which football was a vehicle for the total development of his athletes. The stories included in this book clearly demonstrate how a tight focus on the personal development of each athlete can deliver victories on and off the football field. Through his work with young adults, Coach Brown personified a positive message fundamental to the development of athletic, family and corporate teams, as well as individuals of all ages. Coach Brown exemplifies the best in positive coaching, and More Than a Game will show you how you too can turn athletic competition into life changing experience.

''Jim Brown captures both the good times and the bad in these pages, while teaching us about the great value of sports along the way.''
--Christine Brennan, USA Today sports columnist, ABC News/NPR commentator, and author of Best Seat in the House

''Whether you coach a youth sports team, a business organization, or a family unit . . . you will learn meaningful insights into values, leadership and relationships.''
