Publisher's Summary

2008 Retailer's Choice Award winner!

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.

Includes a foreword by Denzel Washington.

Uplifting

Tony Dungy has reminded me to stick to the facts and see life and it's situations for what they are. Where are my priorities and how am I arranging my day based on them.

Even if football is not your game, this book can speak to anyone for one reason or another. May God bless you as you listen.

Good but could have been better

I enjoyed and appreciated the message that Tony was getting across in the book. I thought that it was extremely relevant particularly in our current environment. However, I felt that in many portions of a box, football was the major focus while in other parts his message became the primary theme.
While I appreciate Tony’s strength of character and how God has been instrumental throughout his life, I feel the audiobook would have profited from a professional reader.
The written version probably would have been a better choice.

Dungy’s Coaching Philosophy impressive

Dungy’s rare coaching style in the NFL is so refreshing and highly respectable. I admire his ability to always stay calm and patient as someone who wears their emotions on their sleeve.

Tony is a gifted storyteller and gave great insight into his family life and coaching profession.

As an Athletic Director of a Christian school - my favorite excerpt was the following:
“The competing Views of success in our world often create interesting tension. Society tends to define success in terms of accomplishments and awards - Material possessions in profit margin’s. In the football business winning is the only thing that matters. God’s word, however, presents a different definition of success – one centered on a relationship with Jesus ChristAnd a love for God that allows us to love and serve others. God gives each one of us unique gifts, abilities, and passions. How will we use those qualities to have an impact on the world around us determines how successful we really are. God’s definition of success is one of significance. The significant difference our life can make in the lives of others. This significant doesn’t show up in win loss record, long resumes, or trophies gathering dust on our mantle it’s found in the hearts and lives of those we come across who are in someway better because of the way we lived.”

The other take away was just the real meaningful coaching friendships built and how deep Dungy’s coaching tree is.

Inspirational and Uplifting

I’ve always admired Coach Dungy for his on and off the field leadership. As a parent and member of his All Pro Dads organization, this book allows for an insight into what drives him off the field. Being a man of God, a steward to preach Gods word through football, and develop young men for greater things. I feel motivated after listening to this book and moved to become a better friend, Dad, and Husband.
