Some people will email me what books I am reading. I often respond with what do you have first to see what they are reading. The usual suspects are glorified toilet paper, books written by gurus that cherry pick athletes and try to rewrite history. When I see that I usually send them a list of about 10 books (5 specific and 5 general) and the response is a complaint on price and availability. Currently we have a problem with parroting, meaning empty brains that regurgitate other people’s work to appear smart. These coaches are often those that teach their athletes to pinch grip plates above their feet and loose arguments on basic physics to college kids on message boards.Nothing wrong with sharing what you learn from others, but progress can’t be on the sideline waiting for others to do the dirty work. So instead of posting book lists of people they may slime there way into networking with great minds I will Private Message a few books that I am rereading if anyone is interested.
