    "Grounded Human Being"

    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!

    "What a man"

    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.

    "Grateful for the decision"

    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.

    "Worth the time"

    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.

    "Nice Job Tony."
    What made the experience of listening to Quiet Strength the most enjoyable?

    It was exactly what I thought it would be. I have enjoyed listening to Tony Dungy on ESPN and watching him coach through out the years. This book felt like I sat down and had a Sunday morning cup of coffee with him.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have listened to him talk, it takes a lot to get him excited. The book is read by coach Dungy, which means that it maintains the same soft-spoken tone from start to finish. If you listen to it for a long time, your attention will wander if you are not careful.
