Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices & Priorities of a Winning Life
Even for non-football fans
First off, I am not a football fan. I watch it only because I have two people in my life who do love football. The only time I even showed any interest in football was when I lived in the Tampa Bay area. I remember when Tony Dungy took over as their head coach, and I remember how impressed I was and how the team changed. I was horrified when he was fired, and then we he became the Colts coach, I was somewhat interested. I remember how my heart broke when I heard of his son's suicide. The constant for me with Tony Dungy was that he is a Christian, and he never yelled at the officials and the players like the other coaches did.
I was not looking forward to reading this book because I figured it would be filled with football stuff. I was pleasantly surprised as I read the story of Dungy's life, and on almost every page, his faith showed forth in a very simple manner. I was so inspired, and more than once he almost had me in tears. To have the faith that he demonstrated throughout the book! Goodness, he puts me to shame! He gave all glory to God for everything, and he learned to trust Him in all things.
Indeed, this is the best Christian book I have read in ages. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to deepen their walk with the Lord. It is autobiographical, but it is first and foremost a book of faith in God.

Well written, thought it might be another sports book but, I was surprised. I am enjoying very much. We are using it in our church small study group.

We bought this for our son who is a P.E. teacher and a coach. He was very pleased with this gift. Again a very nice book at a very good price. Praying it will encourage our son in his life as a teacher and a coach.

Really powerful information with an easy to follow organization of ideas. Great for leadership! My son-in-law admires Tony Dungy and sees him as a great inspiration.
