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.

    " It's great to know that "winning personalities" can also be people of integrity and faith. Much as I love football, I loved this book even more for its portrayal of a man who loves God and family and is willing to put them before winning and fame. Yes, it really was inspiring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/20/2014

    " Like it so far....lots of football, family, faith through good times and adversity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 2/17/2014

    " the book starts out by stating it is not about football. i get it. its about faith. but there is a ton of football in there and not nearly as much about faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynette Hart | 2/17/2014

    " Good book - talks about life and coaching. I don't know a lot about professional football so occassionally I felt like I was listening in on someone's high school memories where I didn't know the people. But he has a lot of good and simple lessons. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 2/16/2014

    " Tony Dungy, reluctant author, gives us a memoir that is a strong demonstration of faith and character that provides lessons for all of us. He is all about the fundamentals and community. Although this was a fairly quick read the message within rings true long after you close the book. Inspiring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 2/13/2014

    " Not very much about football. It was mostly about his background and his faith. All in all not a terrible book but I was expecting more about football. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen Greene | 1/31/2014

    " Such a touching moving memoir by one of the classiest personalities in football. While the book is jam-packed with enough college and NFL football history and stats to make it an appealing read for any football fan, it is Dungy's up front and on fire affirmation of his faith that plays center stage. I now have even more admiration and respect for this man of integrity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/30/2014

    " This is Tony Dungy's inspiring autobiography. He is clearly a very private person and is focused on how the events of his life come together as part of a greater good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith Ray | 1/27/2014

    " Great testimony of God's leading in all areas of life. Coach Dungy is very candid about the NFL and his faith's primary role in the way he approaches coaching. I was a big Coach Dungy fan, but now I am a fan Tony Dungy the man. The work is well written and has nice flow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/20/2014

    " Fabulous book with good insights from an incredible coach. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melvago | 1/19/2014

    " If you like football, you'll like this book. I read to understand how he survived his son's suicide. It is only addressed in one chapter, which is the only chapter which was of interest to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandi | 12/21/2013

    " Excellent book about life. Tony Dungy uses his football perspective flanked by his Christian values. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 12/3/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Dubois | 10/21/2013

    " I liked it.. It shows that a man. Can be an effective Christian in the world and also in an environment that is typically hostile to Christian values and principles. Tony was a good influence to his players and to the community. We need more like him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 6/5/2013

    " No doubt this man's faith is real. "

    " Great life lessons & viewpoint. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Miranda | 10/24/2012

    " Boring and preachy in my opinion. Supposed to read for a book club, but I didn't finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Drew H. | 5/30/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 2/24/2011
