This is Terry’s new book with columns and essays on sport, volleyball, coaching and leadership. It includes letters to prospective recruits, letters to players, and essays on why coaches get “stuck” and what they can do about it.
There are chapters on National Championships and chapters on risks not taken. There is humor in chapters like “Deep Volleyball Thoughts,” and “Dear Mr. Volleyball Know It All,” and reflection on the impact of former players in “Looking For Ghosts.”
Hall of Fame Coach Mike Hebert has said “Terry Pettit is the best of our writers in the game of volleyball.” Nebraska Volleyball Head Coach, John Cook, has said, “I don’t know of anyone who has more insight into coaching and leadership.”
The foreword is by Christy Johnson, former Husker All-American and the Head Volleyball Coach at Iowa State University, who begins with, “Coach Pettit knows some of the best lessons in life come from a well-told story.” Terry Pettit is a story-teller and these are some of his best.
