The official book release of my book about the new coach of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles (and former coach of the Oregon Ducks) will be at Theatre Exile before the 8pm showing of "The Philly Fan," a one-man show about sports.
This is not a biography or Xs and Os book, but rather a look at the philosophy and innovative management strategies underlying Kelly's success at Oregon (46-7 over 4 years, a BCS bowl every year). The Tao of the title is not glib; I argue that -- wittingly or not -- Kelly's football programs are near-perfect implementations of Taoist principles such as The Uncarved Block, tzu-jan, minimizing ego and emotion, and the pursuit of spontaneity and flexibility through long experience and focused, humble observation.
Book signing and reading at 7, plus a Q&A after the play.
CONFIRMED FOR JUNE 19th!
