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.

They whine, complain, and pass the blame. They spend all their time and energy trying to avoid challenges instead of bucking up and powering through them.Flanagan’s letters are a rallying cry for toughening up and building grit. His fifteen rules provide a clear path to success in any endeavor.Consider this book an instruction manual for getting back to the values that truly lead to success and developing the type of old school grit that will get you through anything....

Old School Grit: Times May Change, But the Rules for Success Never Do (Sports for the Soul Book 2) Reviews
very simple and straight forward kind of stuff. something that is sorely lacking in today's society.
True Grit - not as outdated as folks thinkAnother good read for folks in a leadership position. However, Darrin had a habit of repeating the same points over and over in each chapter. The book really could have been much shorter and still get the 15 rules of success covered.Fleshing our conversations with players, assistant coaches, family members such as a few of the grandkids would have been a better approach for filler material that covered each rule.All and all though I’d recommend it.
Great and easy read. I actually liked the first book better but this is definitely close and nearly as good as that one. I love the way he writes. I love the stories. They aren’t just sports books but they are good sports books if that is what you want. Highly recommend both of his first two. They only took me a day each.
Book 2 was just as good as book 1. Maybe a little more relatable since it features a grandfather/coach writing letters to his grandchildren vs. ghost coaches visiting and imparting advice.
