Fantastic book for all those who want to know more about Bielsa!

I have admired Bielsa, since watching his team at the Olympics. With him being back in focus at Leeds United, I bought this book and can only recommend it! If you want to know what philosophy is behind his coaching and why Leeds is back after 16 years in the second division, it is a must buy!
