—Sean Covey, international bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens

“[It] incorporates the lessons learned from playing on the biggest stage in tennis into concepts that will help parents teach their children. . . . I highly recommend it to both young and old!”

“This book gave me great ideas that will help me be a better father today. ”
—Chad Lewis, former BYU academic all-American and three-time pro bowl tight end with the Philadelphia Eagles

“As a sports fan and mother of five, I’ve always been intrigued by what makes an athlete great–what sets them apart–how they think, set goals, and work to achieve them. In Brad’s book, Life Lessons from Centre Court at Wimbledon, the reader is invited into the mind of a seasoned athlete and coach, who has taken his unique learnings and applied them to parenthood. I was inspired by Brad’s wisdom, insight, and discovered truths. The concept of helping children set lofty goals, and then serving as an alignment specialist by assisting them to align their behaviors with these goals, reminds a parent of the vital role they must play in their children’s lives in order to help them succeed.”
–Maria Covey Cole, Author of Contentment: Inspiring Insights for LDS Mothers

“Life Lessons from Centre Court is a unique and substantial addition to the body of work addressing the parenting and mentoring of youth. Perhaps the strongest evidence of the effectiveness of Coach Pearce’s book is centered in the Pearce children!  While Life Lessons understandably avoided calling attention to his children’s achievements, as an outside observer, the Pearce children themselves show the power inherent in the book’s principles.  Having associated with thousands of youth across the country, I can sincerely say the Pearce kids are some of the most well-adjusted and accomplished youth I know.  Within that group of six Pearce children, there are school and community leaders, presidential scholars, outstanding church missionaries, and accomplished athletes.  But the kids also embody attributes of maturity, resilience, charity, and decency.  Life Lessons from Centre Court and the ideas espoused certainly stand on their own, but the lives of the Pearce children provide an enriched element of endorsement!”
