When a potentially career-ending shoulder injury left quarterback Drew Brees without a team - and facing the daunting task of having to learn to throw a football all over again - coaches around the NFL wondered, Will he ever come back? After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, leaving more than 80 percent of the city underwater, many wondered, Will the city ever come back? And with their stadium transformed into a makeshift refugee camp, forcing the Saints to play their entire 2005 season on the road, people questioned, Will the Saints ever come back? It takes a special person to turn adversity into success and despair into hope, yet that is exactly what Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees has done - and with the weight of an entire city on his shoulders.
Coming Back Stronger is the ultimate comeback story not only of one of the NFL's top quarterbacks but also of a city and a team that many had all but given up on. Brees' inspiring message of hope and encouragement proves that with enough faith, determination, and heart, you can overcome any obstacle life throws your way and not only come back but come back stronger.

Drew Brees is easily one of the most inspiring people in sports today. I'd say that even if I weren't a Saints fan (which I am, WHO DAT!) His story of perseverance, strength of character and faith is a true story of motivational inspiration. Get this book! You won't be disappointed.
This was an awesome book. The narrator was excellent as well. I really enjoyed this book. I am a saints fan and I love Drew Bree's. I always respected him for the way he was especially with the people of New Orleans. After listening to thins book I love and respect him even more. Well worth listening to. Will listen to it again I'm sure. I laughed and cried and enjoyed it from beginning to end. Excellent!!!
