Good listen after the Bush bashing

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-16-08

I remember thinking in the 1st & then the 2nd chapter): What in the world, this isn't the man I thought I was getting. For some reason I kept listening and finally late in the 2nd/early 3rd chapter, he stopped bashing and started a more positive, helpful, and enlightening message.

My bottom line - if you can just make it through the Bush family bashing; I'm not defending them mind you; it's a very interesting book. The admirable Mr. Iacocca does show through and one can understand how he has achieved his stature as a respected & decisive man.

I'm glad I purchased & listened. While I appreciate his opinion & outspoken voice, his bashing is a little too negatively conveyed for my taste.

Tony Dungy's words and example have intrigued millions of people, particularly following his victory in Super Bowl XLI, the first for an African American coach. How is it possible for anyone to be successful without compromising faith and family? In this inspiring and reflective memoir, Coach Dungy tells the story of a life lived for God and family - and challenges us all to redefine our ideas of what it means to succeed.

Better to read?

I want to preface my comments with: I have an enormous amount of respect for Tony Dungee as a person, man, coach, and brother in Christ.

I acquired using an audio credit and highly recommend the book, however, I'm not so enthusiastic about Mr. Dungee's narration. While I appreciate his views and beliefs and find them very inspiring, his monotone detracted from the message - even through what I'm certain were some very impassioned and inspired words.

I love the message of the book but recommend it as a read, not a listen. Sorry, Tony.
