The Golden Rules
10 Steps to World-Class Excellence in Your Life and Work
By Bob Bowman
Get gold out of every day with this powerful plan by Olympic coach Bob Bowman.
Bob Bowman, best known as the coach for the record-breaking run of Michael Phelps, is one of the most successful coaches in Olympic history. The Golden Rules is his motivational book about winning in all walks of life and what you have to do to get there. He presents ten key concepts that all people should live by. Inside, illuminated by spirited anecdotes, Bowman will teach you how to get gold out of every day by setting goals and getting motivated to achieve them. He will explain that taking risks is the key to success in any pursuit, and coach you on how you can become more risk-tolerant.
By following The Golden Rules, you will learn to visualise in order to achieve your goals, and that above all else, dedication to your training, your job, or whatever area it is you are seeking to triumph in is paramount for success.
Bob Bowman has been studying the great coaches and leaders since his days as an undergraduate at Florida State University, where he captained the school's nationally ranked swim team. In addition to Phelps, Bowman has been the primary coach for six other Olympic medalists, including Alison Schmitt (a three-time gold medal winner in London), and was the head coach of USA Swimming for the past two Olympics. As a consultant he has advised swimming federations in the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and Turkey, among others.
