WIN­NING READ

Paul Roos is a leader, a leg­end, an AFL icon. As a first-rate player, premier­ship-win­ning coach and in-de­mand com­men­ta­tor, Roos has achieved ex­tra­or­di­nary suc­cess over more than 30 years in footy. In this can­did book, he not only re­veals his 25 coach­ing tips, but also, for the first time, shares his orig­i­nal premier­ship blue­print with its foun­da­tion of pos­i­tiv­ity and unity. Part sport­ing mem­oir, part lead­er­ship game plan, this book is a masterclass from one of the all-time greats. RRP $39.99. Visit www.peng­in­ran­dom­house.com.au to find out more.
