Psychologists tell us that the secret to a successful and happy life, more than anything else, is something called GRIT.

Defined as the willpower to persevere with passion and a sense of purpose, research shows that grit is what matters most in whether a person succeeds or fails.That same research shows that previous generations had a lot more grit than today’s younger generations. This isn’t surprising. After all, most of us would agree that those older, wiser, and tougher members of the Greatest Generation are prime examples of what it means to persevere, to never back down, and to make sacrifices for a greater purpose. We could all use more of the OLD SCHOOL GRIT they embraced.In this book, Bob Flanagan represents the voice of old school grit. A legendary college basketball coach who thinks like John Wooden and talks like Mike Ditka, Flanagan is entering the final days of his coaching career. While his team tries to advance through the NCAA postseason tournament, Flanagan uses his last days as a coach to write his grandchildren letters revealing the rules for a successful and happy life. The rules of grit.Though Coach Flanagan’s letters are intended for his grandchildren, they might as well be for America in general. This is a man who lives by the old school code of faith, family, courage, and character; and he believes too many people have gone soft these days. They give up on their dreams too easily.

Old School Grit Reviews
In the book “Old School Grit” by Darrin Donnelly, the narrator is fighting cancer and coaching his last basketball game in the national championship. The coach tries to get through to the players that determination out plays talent and when you do something for someone else you will realize amazing results.I personally loved this book because it explains no matter how talented you are determination is even more important because if you are determined you practice better and build up talent but never stop being determined to reach a goal and exceed the goal.I feel that any age can read these books because my mom, dad, younger brother, and older brother all read it and also loved it so that is why I say any age can read the book.
Excellent book. I would highly recommend. Good for ideas on self-improvement and leading a happier and more successful life.
