Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dick’s extraordinary success in developing great players, supporting their academic endeavors, and forging great teams is unsurpassed in NCAA tennis history. His book gives insights into his holistic approach, and we can all learn, whatever our profession, from this outstanding coach and exceptional man.” Condoleezza Rice
“Loaded with lots of direct quotes from his players, Gould presents so many pearls of wisdom in this book that I highly recommend it as an excellent resource for anyone interested in leadership—from parents to coaches to those aspiring for leadership positions in any enterprise and at any level.” Jerry Porras, coauthor of Built to Last
“Dick is passionate, purposeful, full of humor and grace, and cares deeply about our youth. Dick reminds us that first and foremost, a coach is an educator who cares. This critical trait reverberates from his player’s comments throughout Anatomy of a Champion.” Brian Hainline, MD, NCAA Chief Medical Officer
“The balance of the conceptual, and also sometimes chronological, approach keeps the reader engaged throughout. As a pure tennis coach, player, or fan, this is a must-read. However, I wholeheartedly believe that this book also provides great information for business leaders, educators, and sports administrators who will derive tremendous benefits from reading this book.” Paul Roetert, Managing Director, USTA-U; National Campus
“We just watched in awe each day how Coach worked to transform Stanford tennis in that tiny wood shack…You just knew that being around this guy was going to be worth the ride. And oh, what a great ride it was.” John Corse, Stanford Tennis Team, 1982
“When you joined the team, you automatically felt like you were there to do your job and that was to help win an NCAA championship. Coach magnified this sense of pride and purpose each and every day.” Mike Bryan, Stanford Tennis Team, 2000
“It is critical to understand that the results that Dick Gould had are truly the by-product of his personal greatness. His pursuit of constant and relentless improvement. His pursuit of fulfilling and executing the value systems of work ethic, attention to detail, perseverance, determination, a willingness to take chances to do and be special, never letting his competitors see him down or discouraged, his amazing recruiting skills and optimism.” Nick Saviano, Stanford Tennis Team, 1973
