Publisher's Summary

Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow has established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time, he amassed an unparalleled resume - winning two BCS national championships; becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy; and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

Now, in Through My Eyes, Tebow brings listeners everywhere an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it, revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tebow has a unique story to tell - from the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took place in between.

At every step, Tebow's life has defied convention and expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-documented, the stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all really happened.

Informative and encouraging!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this book to get a look into the life of a very interesting young man.

What did you like best about this story?

Although there were times when all the detail behind each play/game seemed boring, it provided a foundation for the story. I enjoyed learning about his family and the role they played in his life and how a 'homeschooled' young man has grown to be a light in the ever darkening wold of pro sports.

Any additional comments?

I read this book for one reason. To learn more about the young quarterback who seems to be in the news weekly and sometimes daily. I am not a sports 'nut' but I enjoy reading about a success story of a young man who is making a positive difference in the sporting (entertainment) industry. Too often stars in the sport world are horrible role models filled with self pride and are very arrogant. This young man is setting a good example and is destined to be a great role model for young aspiring athletes.

Tebow fan

Being a Florida Gator and Jacksonville native, it was with anticipation that I read Tim Tebow's story. Our youngest is the same age as Tim and competed against him when he played at Trinity. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story and as Christians, appreciated that he kept true to his faith in telling his story. Our disappointment was in the performance. The individual reading the story mispronounced many of the Florida city names which was disappointing. If you're going to read a book, be sure to know the names in the story.

Thank you for including this in Audible.

Better than expected

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. In a day when few men want to make any sacrifices to be a role model, it is truly inspiring to hear the thoughts of a man who values his relationship with Christ over the temptations of the world. Although not a perfect man, Tebows character is one that I am sure will inspire many.

Any additional comments?

The narration was a bit slow at the start but later I got really into it and didn;t want to turn it off.

Lots of play by play

I enjoyed listening to this book. Tim is obviously a special guy and he has a great story, however this book had way too much "play by play" descriptions of foorball games. I was interested in Tim's story because of his religious convictions and wanted to hear his entire story. As I said, I enjoyed the listen but had hoped for more personal stuff and less "I moved to the right and hit the wide receiver at the 20".

Great story coupled with a strong Christianity bas

Great story coupled with a strong Christianity base. This book is definitely a must read for young leadership. he gives a blue print on how to be a follower of Christ and being in sports too.

enjoyable

the book was definitely enjoyable and you get to see how Tim Tebow became Tim Tebow. it's and inspiring journey of faith and perseverance. while it's a good book, his second one is even better! the most memorable part of this story for me is the story of his dog. a story of how he should have died but fought to live and got stronger and stronger every day... much like Tim. I enjoyed the narrator as he was pleasant to have in my ear all day. what a great story!

I Didn't Know This About Tebow!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in any one or more of the following topics: relationships, charity, serving, helping people, missions, orphans, sports, homeschooling, football, faith, perseverance, leadership, baseball, family, overcoming, celebrities, or someone just looking for a good, true story.

What did you like best about this story?

The best thing about this book is that it is literally told through the perspective of Tim Tebow, and you feel like you are experiencing what he experienced because he explains things in vivid detail.

What does Tom Wayland bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

While the reader, Tom Wayland, wasn't my favorite, I think he did a great job of bringing personality and emotion to Tim Tebow's words. Sometimes Wayland was a little too fake sounding, as he overemphasized things a lot. But I think his young and excited tone was a good match for Tebow's personality and voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could have listened to it all at once, I would have, but with work and stuff I split it up into 30 minute segments and finished it in a few days. Tebow does a great job of telling real life stories in a really engaging way.

Any additional comments?

Before this book, I had heard of Tim Tebow, and knew he played football and was an outspoken Christian. But now, I feel like I could walk up to him and have a conversation about his life. The stories in this book are incredibly inspiring. All the records he set in football are unbelievable, and the fact that he lives out the moral lifestyle he preaches is probably even more impressive, especially in a time when sports players are such terrible role models off the field.

Great Listen!

What about Tom Wayland’s performance did you like?

The narration was great! Never got "sick of listening".

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed this book! Was not a big Gator fan or follower during his time at Florida, but I heard Tebow speak at an event and wanted to hear more about his story. As a new mom to a son, I really enjoyed hearing about how his parents raised and the decisions he made on and off the field. There is a lot of football play by play in this book. Even though I didn't follow him when he was playing I love football and didn't mind this portion. Love the religious passages, but not so much that it is preaching. I found this really thought provoking as a mom whose son my play football/sports and what that entails. Great read on a wonderful person! You don't have to be a Gator fan to enjoy the book!

Inspiring and encouraging

Loved all the details and the authenticity and was very easy to follow. Very clearly set out and well structured. I very much enjoyed listening to this book, and each time I listened I felt encouraged and strengthened by the scripture verses and the story. Five stars!
