Review quote

"The Volleyball Coaching Bible, Volume II, is an absolute must-read for volleyball coaches at all levels, and a wonderful addition to the available current volleyball texts. With the guidance of Cecile Reynaud, one of the most respected and experienced coaches of all time, this comprehensive book provides foundational concepts and expert advice that will surely help any coach become an even better coach."

Doug Beal-- Chief Executive Officer USA Volleyball

"As one of Cecile's former players, I benefited from her innate ability to get the best out of me and my teammates, and she's done the same with the coaches who have contributed to this outstanding resource. I recommend this book to any volleyball coach who is serious about bringing the best game to the court."
