From Underdog to Winner: Book Release

May 30, 2017 marks the official date for the release of From Underdog to Winner: In Pursuit of 100% Performance by John A. Pfitsch, M.A. and Barbara Teetor Waite, Ph. D. Here’s the official release:

Kellogg, IA— John Pfitsch (1919-2012), coach at Grinnell College for 50 years, and Barbara Waite, former chair of the Sport Psychology Program at The University of Iowa, square off to scrutinize theories and philosophies behind 100% performance, Coach Pfitsch’s term for the best his athletes had to offer. Using Coach Pfitsch’s typewritten manuscript from the 1980s, hours of recorded interviews, and a little imagination, a conversation between Barbara Waite and Coach Pfitsch’s ghost reveal more than just how to win athletic contests. Coach Pfitsch’s ideas, developed throughout his career at University of Kansas, Midland College and Grinnell College, come alive through his extraordinary stories and lively conversation in From Underdog to Winner: In Pursuit of 100% Performance.

“John Pfitsch’s ‘out-of-the-box,’ progressive approach to training athletes makes me wish I’d been one of his players,” says Bob Rotella, Ph. D., performance consultant and author of How Champions Think. “Coaches and athletes are in the best position to observe and study the phenomena occurring on the field and court.”

“Not so fast,” says Barbara Waite, sport psychologist, and self-appointed interrupter of John Pfitsch stories. Before drawing any conclusions, she wants to see what research has to say about the coach’s ideas.

In From Underdog to Winner, this unlikely duo explores what it takes for teams, individuals, even underdogs facing formidable odds, to produce their best performance possible.

  1. I bought read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I played on the freshman football team during what became the glory years of the 60s. I have a longer inquiry about Coach but would prefer not to have it on a public blog. Can you send me an email address I could use?
