Good listen but would probably READ better.

I loved this book but will probably go out and buy it too. Much of the teachings are short and I found myself wanting to relisten. If I were reading this would have obviously been easier to do. As an Illini fan I hate to say it but Coach Tressel makes it hard to root against Ohio State football (prior to listening it was easy:))
