Publisher's Summary

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 a coach, especially a football coach, to win the respect of his players and lead them to the Super Bowl without the screaming histrionics, the profanities, the demand that the sport come before anything else? 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.

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.

Amazing Strength!

This is a well written and we'll performed life example about how to deal with those moments that require the gentle reminder to practice quite strength every day so that when you need it to be there it'll be exactly what you do automatically.
