    My five star review is not based on the literary merit of this book The writing is basic and the degree of in depth analysis you'll find between the covers is rather elementary None of this took away from my enjoyment of Play Like You Mean It I happen to be a die hard NY Jets fans so I am the primary audience But fans of football in general sports in general and the motivational process reuired by a coach in the NFL and beyond will also find this to be a valuable read If you enjoyed the HBO program Hard Knocks that featured the Jets leading up to their 2010 season don't walk but run to get a copy of this book You'll fly through it so uickly you may decide to immediately read it a second time just for the heck of it Even if you are not a Jets fan I'd think anyone that has heard interviews with or even just brief soundbites from Rex Ryan will find him to be an intriguing figure Everybody want to have a boss like him someone who shows such relentless confidence in your abilities that you can't help but fall for his spell and perform at optimum level His cockiness is contagious because it's built on genuine belief that he has an eye for talent and the ability to get the absolute best out of those who buy into his program His positive energy would infect anyone but the most cynical of people and extreme cynics are not the type you want around anyway no matter how talented they may be Read this book if you're a Jets fan If you aren't there's a pretty good chance you will be by the time you reach the last page Rex makes it uite easy to root for him even if you start off otherwise inclined

    Play Like You Mean It Passion Laughs and Leadership in the World's Most Beautiful Gme To Rex Ryan the head coach of the New York Jets football team winning is everything He’s been the coach of the Jets since 2009 and his team has made it to the AFC championship two years in a row A lot has happened for coach Rex in the past couple of years He went from a New York hero by getting the Jets to the AFC championship two years in a row to a disappointment for not backing up his guarantees of winning the Super Bowl those two years they lost to the Indianapolis Colt and then the Pittsburg Steelers the next year both loses being one game away from every football lover’s dream of playing in the Super BowlIf you follow sports media you know that Coach Rex is on 247 You see his face everywhere whether it’s good or bad This autobiography with the help of Don Yaeger explains all Rex’s ups and downs from the Darrelle Revis situation Rex’s foot fetish video losing back to back AFC championship games to beating the Patriots celebrations great games and making the playoffs Each chapter covers a big event in the history of Rex andor the Jets He can go from talking about his learning from his dad Buddy to his plans for his defense and Mark Sanchez One of the best ualities about the book is that Rex doesn’t sugar coat anything for the reader he talks in the book like he was saying to your face and he mentions in the book that he “doesn’t give a damn” but the book is ten times better written like thatThe purpose of Rex Ryan writing this book was to air everything out; to explain to everyone interested the things that went on and currently go on in his mind The book is made for Jet fans period It was interesting for me the whole way through reading it because I eat sleep and watch the Jets play football I was learning about one of my heroes and my favorite team in the history of sports This book answered my uestions about the 2009 and 2010 seasons for the Jets and gave me hope for 2011 and the years to come with Rex Ryan leading this team to its second Super Bowl victory This book isn’t for people that aren’t 1 Interested in football 2 Interested in the Jets or 3 Interested in Rex Ryan because there inst a page in this book that doesn’t talk about these three topicsI love this book because it is meant for readers like me who like to read about topics we love and only that There wasn’t a single boring chapter in this book Rex doesn’t care about how people feel about him after the book; he cares about defending his players and Jets organizations When talking about how Hard Knocks the TV series on the Jets bad mouthed people he stood up for Antonio Cromartie saying “I was unhappy they even asked him what the names of his kids are I was unhappy they even asked him that uestion and brought his personal situation into the show” By the end of the book I had so much respect for Rex Ryan than ever before and I suggest Jets fans all around the world read this inspiring story of failure success and hope

    Because I am a part time college football assistant coach there are men out there who I keep an eye on in the profession If they speak at a coaching clinic in the area then I go If they write a book or if something they've presented is available online then I check it out Rex Ryan is one of those coaches I keep an eye onI have to say that my rating of like it is heavily influenced because I liked it going into it It seems of a specialty book something a New York Jets fan or another coach would be interested in It doesn't have the universal appeal of something by John WoodenThat said I came out of it learning something about himat the very least I learned what he wanted us to know about himand that is honesty If what he says about himself is true then he is a guy who I will continue to keep and eye on and listen to when he speaks Not saying I'm genuflecting I'm saying it is nice to have someone who speaks honestly from the heart and who doesn't remind me how much smarter he is than the rest of us Rex comes across as a man with a lot of passion for what he does and who makes no excuses for his warts

    I've been a Jets fan for all of my life and I can't be excited about the energy and success Rex Ryan has brought to my team To support the man I thought I would give his book a read and while not a gem of literature is an entertaining read for any fan of the green and whiteRyan talks about his background and his overall philosophies for the game of football He's an honest guy and while he doesn't cover everythinghis foot video the Revis holdout locker room turmoiletc he gives an insight into the last two seasons and offers a few nice nuggets of things that were going on behind the scenes This definitely isn't a tell all though given he's still with the teamLike I said earlier this isn't a well written or profound life altering memoir but it certainly gives insight into the man they call Rex and definitely a nice summer read for fans trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel through this lockout

    Ha A good read to gain some football knowledge like what a Cover 1 or Cover 0 is But I really can't wait to read the suel to this book where Rex has to explain why every single prediction he makes in this book on Sanchez Revis the Jets winning the Superbowl his coaching tenure etc is totally and utterly WRONG Also a word of advice on listening to your twin brother Rob He is an absolutely TERRIBLE Defensive coordinator His defenses have ranked in the BOTTOM third of the league since forever Good luck in Buffalo

    I've always enjoyed Rex Ryan He cracks me up and his bravado seems tempered somewhat In this book he makes it understandable just why he is so completely confident It gives insight into his upbringing family life beliefs about the game of football himself and those around him It's actually uite inspirational I'm not a Jets fan but I will certainly watch them and their coach with great interest this year

    Definitely worth reading if you are a fan of the NFL Obviously Jets fans would love it just as they did the HBO series Hard knocks which is referenced is the book a good amount and actually gives some backgrounddoes justice for a lot that happened in the show Rex Ryan is the man and now every time I see the Jets I have a much better knowledge of their organization and Rex's attitude which leads by example

    I uite liked this book I am a Jets fan so it was nice to get some insights of how Rex Ryan is with the team and some of the characteristics of the players I like background information there lots of that as well I liked getting information that I can share a about the game of football the Jets team I recommend this book highly to Jets fans or football fans Because there are great insights of the game

    This book was so much fun Mind I'm about the center of the target audience football fan Jets fan New Yorker Part memoir of his history with football rooted in his dad's coaching years part discussion of his outlook on life coaching etc This was a fun easy read The I read the I liked Rex

    Ehreally repetitive and redundant plus they censor the word fuckreally? That's how you know Rex Ryan didn't write it Just a ghostwriter who saw a marketable opportunity to progress his career by cranking out a 275 page about pretty much three seasons Brutal
