Having taken nine years in the writing of the manuscript, Coach Harry Marra presents to you a book that is REAL, HONEST, and FUN-FILLED in its words. Instead of just pontificating on a particular idea or concept, Stories From the Passenger Seat: Lessons Learned From a Lifetime of Coaching gives you real life, real live actual situations where world class athletes came to a crossroads and describes what they actually did to negotiate them successfully.

Stories From the Passenger Seat gives the reader a first-person account of being in an Olympic Stadium, sitting alongside Coach Marra, and having to make critical decisions that will dictate the outcome of the contest. Reading specific vignettes throughout the book will have you on the edge of your seat in anticipation of the outcome, much the same as a mystery novel might do.

If each reader learns and/or develops one new trait that may help them better negotiate the “road of life” by reading this book, then it will have been an effort well worth the time of jotting these stories down.

Enjoy your journey.

    The Heart of Champions

    Posted by Bob Correia on Oct 16th 2022

    This new book is a must read for any coach that wants to see into the psychology of coaching from one of the best multi-event coaches in the world. Harry has given us a glance into the type of athlete that pursues probably the toughest competition in the world and his personal style of coaching. Filled with entertaining anecdotes and a unique look into this complex world, you cannot help but come away with a new appreciation for the Sport. It is a quick read but I read it 2X because I enjoyed it enough to make sure I did not miss anything. Every Coach and Athlete needs this book in their arsenal of motivational material!
