    From the Whistle to the Snap by Dr. Rick McGuire (“Coach” as he is affectionately known) is a user-friendly, highly valuable addition to both the football and sport psychology libraries. Coach understands coaches and presents the material in a way that is immediately usable and ready to implement into practice and training sessions. Having worked as a sport psychologist for football teams at the high school, NCAA, and NFL levels I can confidently recommend this book as a meaningful guide to teaching football players how to better focus and perform at their best!
