Pplied to me the most was the last one which was called The 10 80 10 principle This chapter was about the players and how there were people who worked the extra mile to achieve reatness Then there were players that were there just to Blackmailed Into the Italians Bed get by but worked hard Finally there were the players that did not work very hard and seemed to not want to be there The first 10% were the people who worked the hardest and stayed after practice to work and came in early to work As Urban said these are the players coaches love to coach The 80% are the majority of people and they just come to practice and work hard and don t do anything extra The last 10% are the people who seem like they don t want to be there and as Urban said that the last 10% can be a nightmare to coachI would rate this book a 5 because I neverot bored reading it I would recommend this book to anyone who liked sports or is a very lazy person try to improve and not be lazy All in all this book has been my favorite book I have read all year this school year I read Above The Line by Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer This popular biography was published after Meyer s surprisingly successful 2014 football season I strongly believe that this story should be read by those who not only enjoy sports but also learning how to become a better leader and creating a mentality to win The plot is based upon Urban Meyer s coaching career mainly focusing on the year 2014 when he won a National Championship when no one thought he could do it Throughout the book Meyer takes a very detailed style of writing and Girls Night Out gives readers incite as to what he was thinking and what wasoing on at certain points within the season The theme of this biography is that leadership creates success Not only does he apply this on the football field but Meyer discusses how important leadership can be in a workplace or any other situation where working with others is important There really is not much characterization created by Meyer however he does discuss the attributes of being a leader and what players he has had that apply those attributes Also Meyer most apparently creates a characterization of himself discussing what he believes and how his ideas on leadership can make a team Bound To Ransom (Bound Series Book 2) great The plot created by the author is very interesting and informative Meyer mainlyoes over different ideas that can be applied to make better leaders on and M away from the reasons he wanted to coach in the first place When he returned to the sport in 2012 as the head  coach at Ohio State the school he rew up rooting for Meyer did so with a renewed sense of the deeper purpose of his work and a profound commitment to life balance that had previously been lacking What remained constant was his passion for leading teaching and motivating forging his football teams into a cohesive whole playing for one another with selfless commitment and uncommon intensity  Ohio State’s 2014 season was in many ways Urban Meyer’s master class in leadership The world knows how the story ended with the Buckeyes capturing the inaugural College Football Playoff Championship with a 42–20 victory over Oregon with the team’s third string uarterback at the helm in only his third collegiate start Few remember how it began with a bad early season loss that sent OSU out of the Top 20 season ending injuries at the most important position on the team and then infinitely worse the tragic.
