I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it, He's a master of his craft. He works his sport better than anybody I've ever seen. He understands it. He gets it. He understands how it all comes together — mind and body. And he understands competition, what second is, and what it takes to be first.
Coach Eddie Reese is a legend in the coaching world and an icon at the University of Texas. He became a great friend to me during our time together at UT and he represents the best of what it means to be a coach and mentor. The lessons recounted in this book are invaluable for anyone interested in become a better leader.
An emotional and educational read. Although I swam for Eddie for eight years, I still learned more about him from reading this book.
This is a brilliant read…..insightful, warm, funny and filled with meaning…just like Coach Reese himself.
There are few times in a life when one is humbled by an exhibition of life and of its depiction. This is one. This book is a must read, not simply for those in the aquatic world, but for every human being searching for a compass in life and a value system that breeds irrefutable respect and unparalleled success. This is the living example. While this story is powerful and inspiring, its presentation is equally so. Chuck Warner is the preeminent author in the world of swimming and masterfully intertwines the extraordinary success of Coach Reese with the powerful virtues that laid the groundwork for that success.
Eddie Reese , no person a better coach and no coach a better person. This book says it all. A master class from a true genius in our sporting world.

Both authors were on Coach Reese's first coaching staff at Texas in 1978. They were there, each day, in the initial years of transformation of a "regional" program into one of sport's greatest dynasties ever. For each one, the experience was a "fork-in-the-road" of life, just as the Texas Swimming experience under Coach Reese has been for so many young men.
This is the third book that Chuck Warner has authored. The first two (Four Champions, One Gold Medal & ...And Then They Won Gold) have been highly acclaimed and continue to be popular reads. As a coach, Warner's swimmers achieved success at the highest level of the sport and his teams won national titles. He is a 3-time USA national team coach. He has served as past president of the American Swimming Coaches Association & on the Board of Directors for the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
