"Crothers spent four all-access years with Dorrance and his players for this rich biography and tells the tale of an imperfect man who has shaped a near perfect program." --Time

"Dorrance is a mesmerizing orator, and Crothers reveals the stark emotional power that Dorrance wields over his teams." --Sports Illustrated

"Anson Dorrance's story is one of the most fascinating to ever come along in American sports. And Tim Crothers is the perfect writer to tell it." --Rick Reilly, ESPN

"A great read for anybody aspiring to be the best in sports, business, or whatever their chosen field." --Dr. Stephen Covey, bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

"I've known Anson for almost fourty years, but this book details so much that I never knew about the man behind Carolina's remarkable soccer program. Anyone who coaches, teaches or has a positive influence on young people can learn from someone who is one of the greatest leaders to ever coach any sport." --Roy Williams, University of North Carolina national champion men's basketball coach

"Anson has built a dynasty that has no comparison and Tim Crothers has written a book that is equally extraordinary." --Dean Smith, Hall of Fame basketball coach

"A rare look behind the scenes at everything it takes to coach and play a sport at the highest level, but to me it's really more about what Anson has done to coach all of us so well in life." --Mia Hamm, two-time Women's World Cup championship team member
