The FIRST audiobook EVER on the life and career of an OLYMPIC swimming coach.
Seven time USA Olympic swim coach, fifteen NCAA Team titles and head coach of the University of Texas Longhorns men’s swimming team for 46 years, Eddie Reese’s inspiring life and career are chronicled by two of his assistant coaches from his first years at Texas. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry suggested that Coach Reese is the finest man and most effective coach, not just in the highly competitive field of world-class swimming, but in any sport. Eddie Reese’s swimmers have won thirty-nine gold, sixteen silver, and eight bronze medals at the Olympic Games.
The book “EDDIE REESE: Coaching Swimming, Teaching Life”, details training, leadership, and how to teach life lessons to bring the most out of each individual through the process of development in their sport. Coach Eddie Reese’s exceptional combined qualities of kindness, humor and effectiveness have elevated him to the status of national treasure. Eddie has a simple formula for success in swimming and life: “Take care of yourself, take care of each other, and the rest will take care of itself.” The audio book includes a new Epilogue with reflections on Coach Reese’s career.
Five-time Head Swim Coach of National Teams at the Olympics Bill Sweetenham said “Eddie Reese, no person a better coach and no coach a better person. This book says it all. A Master class from a true genius in our sporting world.”
Mack Brown, Head Football Coach at the University of North Carolina said, “The lessons in this book are invaluable for anyone interested in becoming a better leader.”
