The exalted place Lombardi holds in American culture has never been clearer than it is today, as evidenced by the enormous success of the 1999 best seller, When Pride Still Mattered, as well as the vast popularity of the coach's son, Vince Lombardi, Jr., America's most sought-after motivational speaker.
In What It Takes to Be Number One, Vince Lombardi, Jr. explores his father's leadership philosophy, and extracts powerful lessons about what it takes to be an effective leader. Taking as his jumping-off point his father's legendary 1970 speech on the supreme importance of self-knowledge, character, and integrity, Lombardi, Jr. examines each of those qualities and offers guidelines on cultivating and applying them at work and in your personal life.
Throughout, What It Takes to Be Number One is enlivened by personal anecdotes and quotes about and by his father, as well as quotes from other great leaders providing further wisdom and inspiration.

Great book on leadership. Excellent read with oldie but goodie information which revise my guidance in leadership roles.
"not what I expected."
I would have preferred the coach to his Son's insights. It was OK not great.
"A superb leadership skills audiobook!"
An engaging audiobook showcasing the 'Lombardi leadership model' a recommended listen that will inspire, especially if you appreciate American Football!...
It's advice, but from the point of view of coaching a team, which is something everyone can understand - advice from entrepreneurs, CEOs, etc can require a jump in self-image.
Would if I could.
