Listener Opinions

    " I'm sure this a good book and it's probably the fact that I had to read it for work...yes for work. We have a book club. But I feel like this book was rather repetitive. I usually like books that use regular everyday language but he just used way too many cliches. Eh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 2/10/2014

    " This is a book you can a lot from. I mostly enjoyed the stories and quotations through out the book. Go Buckeyes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 E. Scott | 2/4/2014

    " I know things ended rough at Ohio State, but Tressel is still a class act, and this book is evidence of it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 1/14/2014

    " it's kind of like "self-help light". Good exercises but nothing likely to be life changing. Lots of stories about God and football. If you are a religious zealot or huge buckeye football fan, this book may be for you, otherwise, you'll likely find better results reading something else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 1/9/2014

    " Tressel is a football coach and not an author for a reason. However his well rounded person approach teaches his players the game of life (not just football). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 1/9/2014

    " Good stuff from a good man "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Krekeler | 1/3/2014

    " You know the writing isn't all the greatest but the message is loud and clear. I've become an Ohio State fan or at least a Jim Tressel fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 12/22/2013

    " For me, it provided a good way to organize goals "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck Clemens | 12/15/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 12/14/2013

    " The best college football coach in the country is a pretty good life coach, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mirek Kukla | 12/2/2013

    " Not huge into motivational books; boss had me read it, enjoyed it more than I expected too. Gets a little redundant, but the lessons are good. There's lots of great quotes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 5/13/2013

    " For being a Michigan fan, this is a great book so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Kelliher | 1/17/2013

    " Actually not about football, but finding purpose and meaning in life no matter what you're calling. Would want any college or high school student to read this, any adult for that matter! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 11/22/2012

    " It's 8:45 and Michigan still sucks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Corley | 7/18/2012

    " Great book...The stories were good and his principles that he applies to his program are sound and good to live by. The principles can be used in any aspect of life! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan | 7/15/2012

    " No offense to anybody who got value out of this book, but it's basically just a mish-mash of cliches about working hard and being a good boy. Kind of a rip off if you ask me. A bunch of common sense stuff like "have a positive attitude" and "get to practice early." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Bayles | 8/31/2011

    " Good, solid hopeful advice from a man you can respect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/17/2011

    " This is a self help book of sorts. Plus it also gives an OSU fan deeper insight into Tressel's methods for helping the kids become leaders in life, not just on the field. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 4/10/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/14/2011

    " Basic, common sense approach from a person who knows and has experienced leadership in a challenging setting -- college sports. Great for reminding us of how we should be presenting ourselves as leaders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 1/8/2011

    " A gift from my brother, this book represents the values of many old Ohio families - so very consistent with traditional values. "Work is love made visible."

    I would hope that women will not be put off by the football references. This book speaks to us all. "
