Super Bowl-winning coach and #1 New York Times best-selling author Tony Dungy has had an unusual opportunity to reflect on what it takes to achieve significance. He is looked to by many as the epitome of the success and significance that is highly valued in our culture. He also works every day with young men who are trying to achieve significance through football and all that goes with a professional athletic career - such as money, power, and celebrity.

Coach Dungy has had all that, but he passionately believes that there is a different path to significance, a path characterized by attitudes, ambitions, and allegiances that are all too rare but uncommonly rewarding. Uncommon reveals lessons on achieving significance that the coach has learned from his remarkable parents, his athletic and coaching career, his mentors, and his journey with God. A particular focus of the book: what it means to be a man of significance in a culture that is offering young men few positive role models. Download and start listening now!

    " Excellent book for men, young men and parents! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 2/10/2014

    " This book covers it all from the perspective of Tony Dungy. A lot of words of wisdom across the map. Leadership, character, integrity, work ethic, family, a lot of nuggets. For me, I loved hearing these nuggets not just from a pastor, leadership guru, etc... but from an NFL coach who has surrounded himself with great people, and choose to live a very disciplined life. Great book. Great Q&A at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Ross | 2/8/2014

    " I listened to the audio book narrated by Tony Dungy and I loved this book. Tony Dungy did it right and does it right. He is one grounded man/person and a true role model. He talks the talk and walks the walk! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Williams | 2/8/2014

    " In Uncommon, Tony Dungy give his insights about what is going on. Tony talks about relationships, marriage, being a man and a family. It has such a good message about what he feel is the truth. This book is about faith and believing in yourself. I recommend this book for men to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 2/6/2014

    " A lot of good points. The main audience is men, but the points are valid for most people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 2/2/2014

    " Very good book, although the book did not go into a lot of depth. He covered a lot of topics very quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emarie Sanders | 1/31/2014

    " Speaking from my female perspective, I think every man on the face of the Earth needs to read this book. It's a simplistic, enjoyable read that encourages men. I don't have a son yet, but even in his infant stages, I plan to read this book to him. Makes a great gift for the reader who also likes sports. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy A. | 1/24/2014

    " This was a great book. It is primarily geared toward boys and men/fathers, but can be read by anyone, and you will be able to take away a lot from it. I wanted to read it because I know what a good man Tony Dungy is, and how admired he is in the athletic and Christian world, and I found that he has a lot of wisdom that many of us, whether kids, or the adults who influence them could stand to learn and act upon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 1/24/2014

    " A friend recommended this book to me. However, it had caught my eye earlier. Tony Dungy is a very quiet man who had done extraordinary things. His faith has been paramount to his success, in his eyes. A devout Christian, he does use Biblical references at times to make a point. But I don't feel he "over does it" and become "preachy". I would highly recommend this book, especially for young men, whether you are an athlete or not. It is a quick read, but you will find yourself reflecting on what dungy has said many times throught the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 1/19/2014

    " Good to see a national sports figure advocate for classic Judeo Christian values. Worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Petervel | 12/31/2013

    " Very good, but nothing terribly original here. Still Dungy is setting a great example for young athletes. "

    " Absolutely amazing. It's definitely written for a man, but women can get something out of it too. I love how much he encourages your faith and tells it straight up even when it comes to complicated issues. GREAT BOOK!!!! "
