    One of my best friends is a Bill Walsh disciple and was a player and grad asst under him at Stanford. He is still coaching now. He always talked about how he loved Bill. Despite the rivalry with the 49ers I always admired him. I didn't even know, until reading this, that this book is so revered (go look at the prices it is fetching) and that he was such a perfectionist. I love reading stories like this because it makes you realize how much these guys sacrifice. Long article but worth the read.

    ...a copy of this book.

    Cost me 200 bucks 5 yrs ago, but best money I ever spent.

    If you want even a clue of what Garrett is trying to do read portions of this book.

    Lucky you! I'd think about it but wouldn't pull the trigger. I bet it's a great read. I can't believe all he put into it and how many redrafts he went through. I figured Garrett had it. As the article said though it isn't copying it because not everyone reacts like Walsh. Hopefully it comes around!
