Reviews of "The Tao of Chip Kelly"





“Having studied Kelly's time at Oregon extensively, Saltveit has written the book on Kelly. Literally.” - Dan Graziano, ESPN

Most major media in Philadelphia covered the release of "The Tao of Chip Kelly," and the reviews were all good.

"Saltveit lays out a clear picture of how Kelly operates. The coach follows a simple philosophy that is woven with simple truths ("Big people beat up little people") and the results have been simple to comprehend as well. Oregon was 46-7 and appeared in a BCS bowl game in each of Kelly's four seasons as head coach." - Bob Ford, Philadelphia Inquirer, June 24, 2013

"Michael Vick might want to use some of the free time between now and training camp to read the book, especially the chapter about Darron Thomas, the Oregon quarterback who left school early and is now buried on the taxi squad of the Calgary Stampeders." - Stan Hochman, Philadelphia Daily News legend, June 21, 2013

Great stuff! Highly recommend. Must read for Eagles/football fans. Will read it every year headed into our preseason." -- Brian Flinn, wide receivers coach, Villanova

"People might think [Coach Kelly's] a flashy guy, but that’s not him at all. He’s, ‘Hard work, hard work, hard work. We’re just going to have the best prepared, best-practiced team with the fastest, biggest guys. And we’re just going to shove it down your throat.’
