Why American Soccer Isn’t There Yet (aka How We Can Win it All) analyzes the methods of Brazil, Spain, Holland – where the author has lived and played – and other similar nations, establishing a ground for a new faith in the approach to American soccer. The purpose is to establish a new insight into contemporary American soccer and restore faith in ground level observation of what works in a competitive team sport. The majority of American soccer players have athletic talent, the raw physical ability, and often the technical ability, however they have been fed the wrong mental information from their elders, including parents, extended family, and coaches. In turn, the coaches have been fed the wrong information from their respective elders. This book lays out what the core problem is, how to break it down, and fix it for the future of American soccer, which has the potential to become a prominent world power.
“… A very interesting book.” – Rich Kushman, Capitol Public Radio, NPR
“That’s the innovative thinking American soccer needs and I think that’s what you’ve proven here with your book.” Taylor Jacobs, Press Play Radio, Seattle, WA
