Few Regrets is the third book in the Coach Bob series by Rick McGee; a compelling, well-crafted story filled with life lessons. Amy and Bob just turned sixty and are looking forward to starting a new phase of their life. When Amy receives a text message from Willy, Athletic Director at the University, wanting them to meet in private, she gets goosebumps. But when Willy tells her that he’s fired the coach and wants Bob to coach one Rose Bowl game, she is afraid he may take Bob away from her. But what is most troubling is the fact that Bob has been out of the scene for ten years. Bob accepts the offer, but a tragedy during the game has his friends coming together and the reunion morphs into an experience of learning, bonding, and exploring new paths.

While Few Regrets is an engaging and entertaining story, it is also an inspiring one, filled with lessons from veterans and people with a shared experience. The first thing that caught my attention is the beauty of the language and the way the drama is written. The story is told in the first-person and very skillfully, alternating between the viewpoints of the key characters. Rick McGee writes about football culture in a colorful way and fans of football will like to spend time with the characters. There are also lessons about life, growth, and purpose. The themes of football, love, friendship, failure, and success and how they affect people are deftly written. Few Regrets is spellbinding, engrossing, humorous, and enlightening, one of the stories I'd love to see as a movie.
