Insider View of An Outstanding Sports Professional 3 mai 2011

Being a football fan, and given the almost superstar notoriety - for better or worse - of Rex Ryan as he will start his third year as the head coach of the New York Jets, I thought I should give this book a shot and I am so glad I did it.

Don't expect an autobiography based on personal life, recent "scandals" (involving home made foot-fetish video by his wife) and other issues, except for two short passages on family and dyslexia. All of the themes revolve around football, more football and his passion for the game and the team currently under his command. Through the good and the bad, the easy and the difficult, a win and a loss, the book reveals the backstage of important moments (including recent 2010 season highlights, such as the ugly Monday Night defeat in New England and the table-turning performance of the playoffs against the same team at the same stadium months later) and what's inside the mind of today's most outspoken and cockiest head coach in sports. When planning and developing the season or each key game in individual, Rex offers every detail going through his mind, from options to decision. He takes every victory or defeat on a personal level and shows it.

Other highlights include the Hard Knocks season and his thoughts on Bill Belichick, Peyton Manning and other peers on the field.

The book is entertaining and of easy read. Specially great if you are a football fan - not necessarily a Jets fan.

I'll admit up front, that I am a Jets fan, and my review is a best effort to keep my personal feelings and associations to the team aside.

Love or hate Rex, he can't be ignored. It is definitely a football book. Very easy to read, light heated, and fun. I think the most intriguing part was the stories about his father. Rex did a good job of clearing things up behind the stories about Buddy and some of the issues he dealt with. Albeit, its obviously skewed to save face for Buddy, I think it reveals a lot about the behind the scenes that the Media didn't portray or write about. Rex gave a lot of props to guys that were "at odds" with Buddy such as Ditka, Gilbride, and Jaworsky to name a few.

Rex give a lot of people the credit they deserve (Bill Belichick, Brady, Manning, et al) and after this book is more widely read, he should get some back. He has a true fire and passion for the game and he just happens to wear his heart on his sleeve. Any football fan can read this and think that this is what is going on in the mind of their own team's head coach. Rex just happens to spice it up with his usual colorful language and he isn't afraid to put it our there instead of keeping it behind closed doors.

Great info about the Ravens and his time there. I enjoyed the history lessons about other teams and how he worked with those guys. Great stories about Tony "Goose" Siragusa too.

Jets fans will absolutely love this book but ALL football fans will definitely enjoy reading this inside edition of Rex and might gain a better understanding of what every coach in the NFL has gone, is, or will go through.

I highly recommend it to everyone that is a fan of the most beautiful game in the world.

Honestly, not a Jets fan but I like the bravado Rex brings to the Jets. In Play Like You Mean It, Rex talks about everything from his time as kid with dyslexia to being with the Ravens for 10 years, to how he became the Jets head coach. I recommend all football fans read this great book. You truly will enjoy the insights and stories Rex shares.

My five-star review is not based on the literary merit of this book. The writing is basic and the degree of in-depth analysis you'll find between the covers is rather elementary. None of this took away from my enjoyment of Play Like You Mean It. I happen to be a die-hard NY Jets fans so I am the primary audience. But fans of football in general, sports in general, and the motivational process required by a coach in the NFL and beyond will also find this to be a valuable read. If you enjoyed the HBO program Hard Knocks that featured the Jets leading up to their 2010 season, don't walk but run to get a copy of this book. You'll fly through it so quickly you may decide to immediately read it a second time just for the heck of it. Even if you are not a Jets fan I'd think anyone that has heard interviews with or even just brief soundbites from Rex Ryan will find him to be an intriguing figure. Everybody want to have a boss like him, someone who shows such relentless confidence in your abilities that you can't help but fall for his spell and perform at optimum level. His cockiness is contagious because it's built on genuine belief that he has an eye for talent and the ability to get the absolute best out of those who buy into his program. His positive energy would infect anyone but the most cynical of people, and extreme cynics are not the type you want around anyway no matter how talented they may be. Read this book if you're a Jets fan. If you aren't, there's a pretty good chance you will be by the time you reach the last page. Rex makes it quite easy to root for him even if you start off otherwise inclined.
Doesn't hold back at all 15 mai 2012

Rex Ryan is a guy who tells it like it is and will not hold back his opinion. His writing is like his interviews and coaching style, he will state his opinion and will back it up with enthusiasm.

Reading this book, one gets a feel for the passion he has in his job and the game he loves. I wonder how much pressure he places on himself to succeed as he wants to always win and win well, especially if it involves beating New England.

After their lacklustre season last year, one can bet that Ryan is preparing himself to win the Bowl this year and reading the book one would believe that he can.

Good read about an interesting and passionate individual.
