Two books and a movie

Physical Intelligence: The Science of How the Body and the Mind Guide Each Other Though Life by Scott Grafton is one of the best books I have read in quite some time. Very well written in a style that makes a complex subject very understandable without dumbing it down. If you are coach, teacher or therapist this is a must read. I wish I would have had this book years ago, just clarifies mind-body relationships and the things we do every day in coaching to improve athletes’ movements.

Another enjoyable book I just finished was Chasing the Bear:How Bear Bryant and Nick Saban Made Alabama the Greatest Football Program of All Time by Lars Anderson. Having played college football in the sixties when every coach was trying to be like Bear Bryant there were many scenes in the book that brought back memories both good and bad. There are good insights into what takes to be the best. Worth reading.

Also recommend a very good documentary by one of my favorite musical groups: The Band. Not sure if it has made to Netflix yet. It is called Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band. Terrific footage of their day in Woodstock, maybe one of the most creative periods by a group in music history. Sad and uplifting at the same time. Some great insights into the creative process. Actually, prompted me to go back and watch The Last Waltz, a documentary of their last performance together.
