The story follows Martin, an un-drafted rookie trying to make it in the NFL. He's spent his entire life proving to the critics that a small guy with a big heart can succeed against all odds. After spraining his ankle in the pre-season, Martin thinks his dream is lost - but then he meets a very special coach who shares 11 life-changing lessons that keep his dream alive, and might even make him the best of the best.
If you want to be your best, Training Camp offers an inspirational story and real-world wisdom on what it takes to reach true excellence and how you and your team (your work team, school team, church team, and family team) can achieve it.

I'm not a religious person at all, and I loved this book. Through the story, you keep hearing references of "Him" and "God" and at first it bothered me. But then IT happened.... In the story you are reminded that faith isn't about religion, it's about your relationship with whatever you believe in. I thoroughly appreciate that about this book.
In other topics, the story is great and does outline plenty of traits of achievers and successful people. It demonstrates how all that is not accomplished by one person, but all those around that person as well.
Great message that is relevant to everyone
Well told and engaging. You find yourself wanting more at the end of each chapter.
The 11 steps for success
Great story. I am going to order hard copies for friends.
I would highly recommend this book and would encourage coaches young and old to read, study and implement the strategies contained within this book. Great read, clear audible...excited to continue the journey of leaving a legacy!
Great read for all ages. I am a sports coach and am going to read it again with my high school lacrosse team to inspire them to be their best.
This book was very inspirational, motivational, and very insightful. Once I began it, I couldn't stop listening to it until I completed it! I smiled; I cried and truthfully I began to seek God after I heard it!! I thank Jon Gordon for his candidness in the life lessons he wrote in the pages of this story. It is very practical and real. Anyone who reads this will be blessed!!
