The Drew Review: 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, by Jordan B. Peterson, Norman Doidge (Foreword), Ethan Van Sciver (Illustrator)

Book Title: 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

Year: 2018

Author: Jordan B. Peterson, Norman Doidge (Foreword), Ethan Van Sciver (Illustrator)

Genre: Psychology

Pages: 409

Book Quote: “It took untold generations to get you where you are. A little gratitude might be in order. If you’re going to insist on bending the world to your way, you better have your reasons.” – J. Peterson

Drew Review:  I found this book very difficult to digest and I had to reread many parts more than 3 times to really understand what was going on. With that being said there is no doubt that Jordan Peterson is someone who is a very deep thinker; who has great “rules to live by.” The actual rules are not hard to understand, it is the psychological background that supports his rules that I felt to be a little too much at times. If you are looking for a definitive guide for how to live your life, Peterson provides you just that.

 

The Drew Review: Robin, by Dave Itzkoff

Book Title: Robin

Year: 2018

Author: Dave Itzkoff

Genre: Biography

Pages: 544

Book Quote: “You got to go full-tilt bozo. ’Cause you’re only given a little spark of madness. If you lose that, you’re nothing. Don’t. From me to you. Don’t ever lose that, because it keeps you alive.” – R. Williams

Drew Review:  Robin Williams was someone I always admired from affair. I have seen most, if not all, of his films and television appearances. So, for me this biography was a chance to understand the man who I danced, cried, and laughed with for decades. This guy was on top of the entertainment world and not a lot of people knew the personal hell he had been going through for such a long time. I found this book to be heart breaking and entertaining.

The Drew Review: Yes Please, by Amy Poehler

Book Title: Yes Please
Year: 2014
Author: Amy Poehler
Genre: Autobiography
Pages: 329
Book Quote: “Watching great people do what you love is a good way to start learning how to do it yourself.” – A. Poehler

Drew Review:  This book is hilarious and if you are a fan of either Saturday Night Live or Parks and Recreation you will thoroughly enjoy the “behind-the-scenes” stories from those two productions. Amy Poehler isn’t someone I thought could be full of worthwhile life advice but I came away from this book pleasantly surprised and blown away at the experiences and words of wisdom she presents in its’ pages. If you want an entertaining and easy read you should give Yes Please a try.

The Drew Review: A Curious Mind: The Secret to A Bigger Life, by Brian Glazer

Book Title: A Curious Mind: The Secret to A Bigger Life

Year: 2015

Author: Brian Glazer

Genre: Nonfiction, Self Help

Pages: 320

Book Quote: “Curiosity—asking questions—isn’t just a way of understanding the world. It’s a way of changing it.” – B. Grazer

Drew Review: If you don’t know who Brian Grazer is, look him up before you read this book to understand the perspective from which you will be getting “advice.” I felt that this book was great in that it offers the reader an idea to get ideas from those around you. I also felt this book sucked because you have to be kind of a big deal to get audiences with the people Grazer interacts with for his “curiosity conversations.” If anything, just reading it for the stories will be worth your time; my favorite was the one about Princess Diana. Curiosity is the foundation for growth in my opinion, and Grazer lets you in on how he cultivates and finds answers for it in his own unique way.

The Drew Review: New Functional Training for Sports: Second Edition, by Mike Boyle

Book Title: New Functional Training for Sports: Second Edition

Year: 2016

Author: Michael Boyle

Genre: Sports Performance

Pages: 243

Book Quote: “…it is essential to analyze a sport to ascertain the qualities that make a great performer and then to develop a program to improve those qualities.”

Drew Review: Let’s get functional! “Functional training” has probably been a buzz word in the field of strength and conditioning before I even joined the field in 2012. With that being said, the godfather of functional training, Mike Boyle, presents this newest edition of his Functional Training for Sports. In this book Boyle provides more evidence of a functional based approach to movements found in the weight room that most athletes can use to find success in their field of play.

The Drew Review: Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance, By Sue Falsone

Book Title: Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance

Year: 2017

Author: Sue Falsone, Mark Verstegen (Foreword)

Genre: Sports Performance

Pages: 296

Book Quote: “Attention to your individual client’s needs based on the medical history, the sport, and your experience will serve your client well.” – S. Falsone

Drew Review: After reading this book I came away with more awareness and understanding from the   physical therapy perspective of getting an athlete back to play after suffering or dealing with a lingering injury. The greatest part of this book for me was the understanding that we all have a role in helping that athlete get back to playing their sport in the ever important “athlete-centered model.” The concepts and theories covered in this book will be a great resource for any strength coach looking to have educated conversations with the members of their own sports performance team.

The Drew Review: The Manual Vol. 4: Chapter 1- Teena Murray; “Operationalizing Excellence: The Performance C.O.D.E”

Review: The Manual Vol. 4 starts off with a banger from Teena Murray. This chapter is about organizing/optimizing your respective “performance model”, whether that be in sports or any other arena. From reading this chapter you will find what has worked for Teena in her previous role as the Performance Director at the University of Louisville. Showing the programs’ effectiveness (to sport coaches and athletes), unifying the different staff members (strength coaches, sports medicine, sports nutrition, etc.), and above all getting the results that ultimately answered the HOW to their own unique WHY. This chapter is for any respective or current performance director as well as any staff member that finds themselves on a performance team that feels you and that staff can do better for those you serve.

The Drew Review: The Manual Vol. 3 Chapter 10: Exercise Science in the Former Soviet Union: Muscle Metabolism to State-Sponsored Doping by Dr. Michael I. Kalinski

“The field of exercise science has made remarkable progress in the past century…due to the current understanding of…exercise to human health, as well as success in athletic endeavors.” –Dr. M. Kalinski

After reading the title of this chapter I’m sure your mind will race through all sorts of assumptions and theories, all of which could be both profoundly inaccurate or actually true. I believe there are quite a lot of people that knew the former USSR doped their athletes to excel on the athletic field but the understanding these researchers had on the human body was fascinating. Kalinski writes this chapter as firsthand account of the exercise science boom during the height of its’ day in the early 1970’s and into the 1980’s in Russia and the United States. The chapter is broken up into 3 parts, covering specific topics such as; creatine research and its impacts on athletic performance, the American-Ukrainian connection in discovering cyclic AMP and its importance, and lastly, the state sponsored doping in the USSR. This chapter is both enlightening and downright daunting as it relates to the past of exercise science. If you are a strength coach who wants more insight in the USSR state sponsored doping or the specific issues that were researched during this time (early 1970’s-80’s) in our history then this chapter is for you.

The Drew Review: The Manual Vol. 3 Chapter 7: ACL Tears: A Plan That Helped Us Avoid Them by Bryan Mann

“…get stronger, counter the mechanisms, and do warmups with components to decrease the risk of the tear.” –B. Mann

The reason I chose the quote before this review of The Manual Vol. 3 Chapter 7 is because the quote encapsulates the simplistic way Dr. Mann prevented ACL tears when he was first starting out as a strength coach. In the first part of the chapter Dr. Mann describes the exercise parameters he used to convey what was “strong enough” for his athletes (primarily women soccer athletes). Then there is a transition into the muscular, neurological, and skeletal mechanics in and around the knee. The last part provides the components of the effective warm up used in this case study. Read the chapter to find the results, but what strength coaches will take from reading this chapter is that there are a lot of variables to consider when it comes to injury prevention. Most solutions can be thought of logically, but others need to be address after a little research.
