Description

Bill Walsh was perhaps the most influential and successful coach in NFL history, transforming the San Francisco 49ers from the worst franchise in sports to a dynasty that won five Super Bowls. He is acclaimed not only for his strategic brilliance but also for his advanced approach to leadership. His teams sustained a consistency of excellence rarely seen in sports or anywhere else.

Drawn from a series of deeply revealing conversations with coauthor Steve Jamison, The Score Takes Care of Itself offers Walsh's best leadership principles illustrated by anecdotes from his entire career. Additional insights and perspective are provided by his son Craig Walsh. The book will delight football fans and guide the vast business audience eager to learn how Bill Walsh motivated individuals and crafted winning teams.

Excellent

A bit stodgy and sometimes the war stories are somewhat repetitive but there's a goldmine of life guiding principles inside.

Be ready to grow

Fantastic book for leaders who want to get the most out of their business or organization. Be ready to look in a very clear mirror of a leader's responsibilities and correcting those as much as the organization as a whole.

Thank you Bill Walsh

I don't watch the NFL or any professional sports, and I don't know Bill Walsh from Moses, but the title of this audiobook resonated with me so I took a chance. I'm glad I did.

There is so much good stuff here. Lots of stories, mostly about football but metaphors for business and life as well.

Bill Walsh, the legendary coach of the San Francisco 49ers, reveals a mix of intelligence, toughness, humility and empathy in his anecdotes. He shares his successes but is also honest about his failings. It's really remarkable.

Having listened to this audiobook right to the end, I have a deep sense of respect for this man. If he was still alive I would want to thank him in person for the great insights he shared. But since I can't, I'll say it here: thanks Bill!

Bill Walsh's standard of performance!

As a fan of 1980s NFL football, I've longed for some kind of an explanation as to how in the world the 1987 Minnesota Vikings so easily dismantled the mighty 49ers. I finally got my answer here in this book "The Score Takes Care of Itself". This nugget and many more will be yours of you choose to dig into Bill Walsh's thesis on his "Standard of Performance".

The actual book on Bill Walsh that I was looking for goes for over $300.00 on ebay. You'll be happy to know this one still satisfies, until you strike it rich and can afford to dump three hundred bucks on a sports book.

Insight into One of the Great Coached

Good insight to what many consider, the greatest NFL coach. Practical thought on how to structure an organization and lead people. Some really good nuggets sprinkled throughout the story. The narrator was spot on, and made it sound as if it were Bill, himself.

Perspective on Bill Walsh legacy.

Excellent read. Learned a lot about the man and a dynasty. I am a Cowboy fan but respected the Niners and Coach Walsh.

The best of the sports leadership books!

This well put together book captures the essence of Bill and his fantastic vision for both football and life. I have read a plethora of sports leadership books and this ranks at the top, right next to John Wooden.

The Score Takes Care of Itaelf

I enjoyed reading this book discovering the principles and leadership qualities of Bill Walsh. Looking at only his coaching career doesn’t do him justice in terms of how he molded an organization into a mirror image of himself. As someone who has spent 20+ years in the corporate world, a lot of the principles discussed are still valid today. I recommend this book to anyone that’s fan of football, attempting to discover new leadership principles and who wants to better themselves.

100% worth your time

I am a coach for a high school team, there is so much I learned from this book that I bought a physical copy so I can mark labels on it. This book has helped me with my current job as well as coaching football. If you are fan of football I suggest reading this!
