Leadership continues to be one of the most trained-for skills in business today. And no figure so fully embodies the leadership qualities managers hope to cultivate in their professional and personal lives than Vince Lombardi, the greatest NFL coach of all time.

In What It Takes to Be #1, author Vince Lombardi Jr.--America''s most sought-after motivational speaker-- examines the leadership qualities that his father considered essential to success. He explores the leadership philosophy of Vince Lombardi, extracts powerful lessons about what it takes to bean effective leader, and shows how to apply those qualities to one''s own life and career.

For all business leaders, or those who aspire to leadership, What It Takes to Be #1 is a blueprint for achieving Lombardi-like success in virtually any endeavor.

From the Publisher

Vince Lombardi Jr. is a writer, attorney, and motivational speaker. A former member of the Minnesota state legislature, Lombardi has held a number of executive positions in professional football. He is also the author of The Essential Vince Lombardi.

From the Back Cover

The First Step-by-Step Guide on How Anyone Can Develop Lombardi-Like Leadership Skills --Now In Paperback!

Legendary coach Vince Lombardi--loved by some, feared by others, but respected by all--was first and foremost a winner. His unparalleled ability to inspire greatness, and mold disparate groups of individuals into dominating championship teams, made Lombardi an icon both on and off the playing field. In What It Takes to Be #1, the one person who could truly understand Vince Lombardi''s unrelenting passion for winning--his son, acclaimed writer and professional speaker Vince Lombardi Jr.--explores the fundamental leadership qualities that Vince Lombardi considered essential to success, then shows how anyone can skillfully apply those qualities to achieve breakthrough success in virtually any endeavor.

Praise for What It Takes to Be #1

"[Vince Lombardi Jr.] distills the substance of the famous coach''s utterances and his living example into lessons that anyone can use to become a better leader and better person. . . . [What It Takes To Be #1] may inspire you to start a process of self-discovery that could enrich your life and make you more effective at whatever you do."

--Fort Worth Morning Star

"Interpreting his father''s advice for businesspeople, Lombardi hangs this book on the framework of the famous coach''s much repeated speech on leadership. . . . the basic "winning model" says to know yourself, build your character, earn your stripes, think big picture, and understand that leaders are made, not born."

--The Business Reader

This book is a good motivational tool for people that like inspiration in their businesses or lives. The author did a nice job in putting together a book based on leadership lessons that were learned by his legendary father, Coach Vince Lombardi.

Overall, it was a very good and enjoyable book which can be read at a very quick pace. However, I felt that at certain times the flow of the book was a little bit difficult and the breakdown of the chapters were a bit confusing. In addition, there were certain points that were repetitive. Nevertheless, I am a believer that one can never get enough motivation in their lives. Therefore, I recommend this book as a quick read to anyone that wants to be motivated by a true legend.

The two best points that I learned came at the end: 1. Winning isn''t everything, it''s the only thing. 2. When all is said and done, we are judged by one thing: winning.
I feel that if one can take these two points to work every single day, then he has gained a valuable lesson from this book and from Vince Lombardi.

I recommend this book to anyone looking to succeed and accel in their business or their lives.

This is an excellent book on leadership and the value of hard work and discipline, the corner stones of success. It also provides an intimate look at the man who defined winning. There are a lot of great quotes and thoughts in this book, whether you''re looking for your own personal motivation or you are a manager looking to motivate your team, there is something for everyone. Now Vince Lombardi''s ideas of motivation and the approach he takes to motivating people will not be for everyone.

Vince Lombardi believed in healthy competition and pushing people to get the best out of them. In today''s PC world everyone is a delicate snowflake and must be treated as such... not so much, either you performed or you were out, that is the Lombardi style. This book also forces you to think about yourself and what your actions say about you and what image you are creating of yourself.

What do you want to be remembered?
What will outlast you?
What will continue after you are gone?

I suggest reading this book with a pen and paper handy, there are so many great lines like the ones above. Also this isn''t a book you will sit down and read right though, it''s best to read it a chapter at a time and then reflect on the ideas presented.
