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 and a 16-page color photo insert.">Skip to Main Content
One word that I would use to describe this book: inspirational. This book was nothing but inspiring throughout its entirety. When I first started to read it I did not think that I would like it, because I am not a huge football fan. The more I read it I learned that it is more than someone talking about football. Tony Dungy is a remarkable man in all that he does. He not only lead his team to the super bowl but also was a Godly man on and off the field. He trusted God more than anyone and only put his faith in Him. He had a lot of responsibility and constantly relied on God for the strength that he needed to push through. He had many hardships in his life but never took his eyes of Christ. He is an inspiration for anyone that would read his book. He teaches that you need to rely on God in the good and the bad times. I think that most of us forget that sometimes. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that needs inspirational on his or her faith journey. I will admit I got lost sometimes with the football lingo, but the main purpose behind the book always kept me intrigued. This book is nothing but an inspiration and anyone that reads it will not be disappointed.
