©2007 Tony Dungy; (P)2007 Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
This was a peaceful listen! Coach Dungy has a wonderful calming voice. His message, as told through his life's unexpected turns, are easy to relate to and give the listener confidence to trust in God more.
Coach Dungy is a religous man, and usually I don't care to be preached to. But he never imposes his faith on the listener and his message is a spirtual one that supersedes any specific organized religion.
If I were a football player, I would want to play for Coach Dungy. We need more individuals in this world with Coach Dungy's character, humility and generosity. I definitely have new found respect and admiration for this man. Would love to meet him one day!
I would strongly recommend this to a friend!
I have admired Coach Dungy, but all I can say is what a man. He aspires to be the best Christian he can, and compromises nothing. He explains that family is first-what a breath of fresh air in a world where all you see and read is work,work,work!Thank you coach for setting the bar.
When I initially heard about the audible book I was excited to purchase it. However, upon listening to the narrator/reader, I decided not too, since he didn't seem to capture Tony's heart and soul in his reading.
Upon checking up on this book once again, I noticed that Tony took up the narrative role and I was glad that he did. Upon hearing Tony's voice, I knew that he would bring the realism and core, feelings to life as he relived them in the book. I immediately bought the book and grateful that Tony made this decision.
The book moved me on more than one occasion as Tony shared his heart and bared his soul. The Colt's highlights from Tony's perspective were just icing on the cake as we get to see this man's family life, Christian faith, and moral conviction stay rooted in his walk with God. This is one of the best books I've ever experienced.
This is an excellent book that gave me incredible insight of what it takes to be a champion. This is an incredible story about a coach who is a genuine good guy that has success. Good Guys do sometimes finish first.
Christian man in 50's looking for good fiction
Terrific, terrific story that helped leaders in my company during a time of great challenge!!!!
Great book. What a great person, story, and belief in his path. I was not expecting the level of spiritual opinions but Tony lives and breathes a spiritual life, so his book should relay that. By the end, I really admired him, his approach, and his faith without feeling pressured to join his religious beliefs (although I did question that feeling about half way through).
This book is a great testimony of what a God centered life looks like. It's refreshing to see a professional coach who never compromised on his beliefs and was able to reach the top in the NFL. This story is a great inspiration for those who aspire to be excellent without losing their soul.
