“I enjoyed reading the book you sent. I have shared some of the contents of the book with my team. I have two sons, one of which is a current player for me and a sophomore who is one of the top 50 sophomores in the country. I feel this book gives them the knowledge that will contribute to the enhancement of their work ethic on and off the court.”

“Between the Ears is a must read for anyone involved in sports at any level. Being a Division I head basketball coach, many of Greg’s experiences are those that I encountre on a daily basis. In today’s college athletics we as college coaches many times play the role as parents fro some of these student-athletes. This book will continue to be a big part of my teaching philosophy throughout my coaching career. ”
