Coach offers a first-class glimpse into the life of this extraordinary South African, Clive Barker. Author Michael Marnewick details everything from his pre-coaching days and how he avoided bankruptcy by driving taxis, to his early coaching jobs and making it into the professional ranks, and ultimately to the position of national soccer coach. The book is not only an in-depth look at Clive Barker the coach, but also gives insight into Clive Barker the man, the husband, the father, and the patriot.

Coach captures the social and political upheaval in the country during the dark days of apartheid and leading into South Africa's golden period of international football when Barker led the team to their only African Cup of Nations success in 1996, before qualification for the 1998 Soccer World Cup.
