I have another German translated book, but can't remember the name.  The exercises are progressive from junior to senior levels.  Some good ideas in it.  Hopefully in a few years my own book idea will be on the list.

Is it called "Coordination"? A green book with lots of coordination with the ball drills?

No, it covers more than Coordination.  Think it's about 15 years old.

There was an old football book that Franz Beckenbauer wrote in the late 1970's. I though it was a great book. It explains tactics, technique, and a lot of other things and drills. I would advise everyone to read it. Could not find it for years. But now there is a hard copy of it on sale on Amazon.com. The name of it is "Soccer Power" It is a little out dated but still has great stuff in it

http://goo.gl/6SMCS Developing Game Intelligence in Soccer, by Horst Wein. Great book, lots of progressive match play exercises in it and some solid coaching advice and guidance, which follows on from http://goo.gl/xaTBG Develping youth Football Players. The tow together are as good as any I've read.

It worked for me - Collin Powell
A good book on basic leadership and management techniques. I have picked up quite a few useful concepts from it that can be applied to coaching sessions, coaching style and player development.


Blink - The power of thinking without thinking by Malcom Gladwell 
The book focuses on how the mind works and how we develop our 'gut instinct'. It allows you to understand the subconscious - which as a coach I would want to manipulate to develop the player

I know the above two are not football related, but they are books that along with the other football books I have found very useful in developing as a coach.

Our Sports Psychologist has the staff reading an interesting book about Leadership, that has a really goof correlation to football.

I apologize if this has already been mentioned...

Charlie must have read my post (2/2/13):

http://andagain.websitetoolbox.com/search?searchid=23114982&showas=post&userid=42689&sort=lastpost&order=desc

I'm actually rereading tese books, highlighter in hand.  I hope to combine the key parts into a narrative about the current thinking re: how people learn.   Target for completion is mid-March.

That is too weird! Missed your post from earlier this month. Almost too coincidental, what's up with you and Cookie? He was hysterical at the youth license last summer. He had the best stories from his Chelsea days.

Have spent a decade developing program and curriculum with one of the leading Coerver affiliates.  Now working with Charlie on a couple of projects associated with Coerver's coaching education side of things.

We actually had a discussion about the books during the NSCAA Convention.

I figured there must have been some connection.  Hope you, Charlie and Coerver can develop more coaching training.  As I have said, might be the best coaches' training I have ever attended. 

More coaching education and less of the camp stuff is my advice.  Get the player clinics all the time, but training the trainers would be better for us coaches.

He still owes me a shirt from the Wellesley College Youth License! 

I brought my U12 girls to the field sessions and they had a blast!  I use so much of what he taught us.

I'd like to add Sven Goran-Eriksson on Football by Willi Railo & Hakan Matson.

This book was actually recommended to me by another forum member and it's a staple that every coach should have IMO.

It's about the psychological side but it's not too heavy with the neurological side and give real life examples that can really work.

I read through it about 3/4 times a year.
