Publisher's Description

2008 Retailer's Choice Award winner!
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, and 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, now updated with a new chapter, 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.

The softcover edition of this #1 New York Times best-seller includes a new chapter! In it, Coach reflects on the 2007 football season and last year's successful hardcover release of Quiet Strength. Also features a foreword by Denzel Washington and a 16-page color-photo insert. Over 1 million in print!

    "Things will go wrong at times. You can't always control your attitude, approach, and response. Your options are to complain or to look ahead and figure out how to make the situation better." Just this quote alone is so informative and influential. Now imagine a whole book full of life-long advice like this. Well you're lucky, because this book is exactly what you're looking for and I promise you won't be disappointed when you dig in.

    This book is about Tony Dungys' life as a former professional football player and eventually the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Super Bowl Champ with the Indianapolis Colts. It is an amazing story as he explains how life can be difficult to keep your eyes on God while walking through your life journey. Another quote Tony Dungy stated, "I need to treat everybody fairly, but fair doesn't always mean equal." Not falling into the requirements of sports, and keeping a strong connection with his family while gaining respect from everyone in his life was very important to him as he explains throughout this book. On a less serious note, Dungy has many comical stories, for example, how he and his wife, Lauren, met and dated then eventually got married. So if you like a little humor, you will not be let down.

    Quiet Strength is absolutely amazing in every single way. It is such an influential book to not only Christians, but also anyone in the world who would like to live a Christ-centered life. It is a book that can be enjoyed by the whole family, whether you are sport lovers or not. The moral of Dungy's book is when you follow and trust God, you will be satisfied and not let down in the long run.

    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.

    I already had a lot of respect for Tony Dungy, but this book brought it to a whole new level. He is a man who walks the walk. This book was very inspiring and fills you with belief and hope and makes you want to be a better person and truly "Let go, Let God" I have several people waiting in line for a turn to read the book!

    Umm...fantastic!!!

    Y'all he's friends with Denzel Washington. What more do I need to say? The fact that Denzel (and his wife) wrote the forward to Tony Dungy's Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices, and Priorities of a Winning Life meant it was going to be awesome (and it was). But I mean seriously, they're friends??? Two of my favorite celebrities_how do I get into that friendship circle??

    Anyway.

    This book's definitely one I'm going to buy (along with all his other books). Dungy's life is encouraging and inspiring on every level. He's honest about his mistakes, his hard times, his joys and what it all comes down to - living a life for Christ. And when did I start getting teary-eyed? In the forward, page x.

    Awesome.

    His story is also such a great reminder of the power and influence we can have in people, like our youth today. I laughed a lot too, especially the way he told the story of how him and his wife, Lauren, met and dated. They truly are an amazing couple. Just when I thought they couldn't impress me more, I turn to page 180 and learn about their adoptions. If this doesn't provide further proof that we are meant to be friends (I have always had a heart for adoption), then I don't know what does.

    And if that wasn't enough to make me cry, talking about his son Jamie (who took his own life a few years ago) was heartbreaking, yet profound. I cannot fathom their grief, but their response and unwavering faith through the circumstance impacted me greatly (and I know so many others).

    Dungy's life reminds me while the journey of life is full of twists, turns, valleys, hilltops and often not quite what we thought it would be, when we trust and follow the Lord, we're exactly where we need to be.

    Have I mentioned I want to be his friend?
