Soccology by Kevin George
This book will change the way you live and play
Football focuses heavily on physical prowess and talent, but the great players possess something extra: The ability to make good decisions on and off the pitch. To unlock their true potential coaches and players need to go beyond their gifts with the ball at their feet and focus as much on their heart and mind. Soccology is an indispensable guide to understanding your psycho-emotional story in order to unlock your potential and make the most of your skills. Invaluable for the modern footballer Soccology contains lessons far beyond the beautiful game in how to be the best version of ourselves.
