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!

    Great Read

    I was very pleased after reading Tony Dungys book Quiet Strength. The book incorporates many strong life lessons, such as overcoming adversity in ones life, creating a very strong backbone to the entire story. While the story does focus a lot around Dungys football career and coaching career, it does not a take a football enthusiast or expert to understand the story. The book includes much background about Dungys personal life outside of football. As you read through the novel you cannot help but grow attached to his life. I loved this book because you can either read it alone by yourself, or read as a group of people or a family. Another significant element to his story is his commitment to his faith. He never loses sight of God through his trials, something that is an inspiration to us all. Many lessons can be taken away from his story, and most certainly be applied while you read through the book. As a whole the book is a very easy read. The chapters a short and precise, no extreme vocabulary is used, and the book is simply very personal. If there is any downside to this book it would be that maybe it is too simple of a reading. Some advanced readers may find the lack of challenge a downside to the book, but I would say that the simplicity of the book did not take away from the meaning whatsoever. Overall I really enjoyed this book. Its a great for anyone kind of person of any age. I definitely recommend this book.

    12/3, Critical Analysis: Writing for Publication in the Real World

    Yost/CW 12:35



    The book Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy is a christian based book. Tony Dungy is writing about his experiences while he was playing football. Tony started playing basketball and football during high school. Basketball was his favorite sport in high school. He then was the starting quarterback his sophomore junior and senior year. His senior year brought him great surprise as he was getting scholarships to play for college. Tony attended University of Minnesota and when he graduated he was drafted to play for pittsburgh. But to his surprise he was playing about all the positions besides his dream of playing quarterback. He kept his faith to God throughout all his struggles. While other guys on the teams were into drinking and drugs he stayed away from it knowing it could hurt his performances for football. Tonys friend helped him realize that football was not the most important thing to him. He knew God was way above that. After a few years of playing football for the NFL he then decided to start coaching. He knows thats what Gods plan was for him. He made sure that all the guys he drafted for his team were followers of God. They had bible studies and just talked about their faith almost everyday. Tony had to make many hard decisions as he traveled from state to state bringing his family along with him for many years. Although there was ups and downs, he always made God come first.

    Tony always did what he thought God wanted him to do. Even if that meant moving a lot and giving up other things. His family and his faith were always the most important things for him. He made his decisions based off of what he thought God was telling him to do or what he thought God wanted him to do. I recommend this book to anyone who likes sport books. I think you would enjoy the book best if you understand football. Also if you like reading books about faith. This book could be difficult to comprehend if you do not know anything about football.

    Inspiring True Story

    Excellent book
    "I have yet to hear God's audible voice, although I have often felt led by God in more subtle ways." This whole book is filled with inspiring quotes and every chapter starts with either a bible verse or a quote. Throughout this whole book it is about Tony Dungys' life and how he brings God into everything that happened, good or bad. Every event that happens in his life, he always makes sure to thank God for the opportunity to be living such a great life. This book is very influential because of the amount of detail that Tony puts into each thing that happened in his life and how it impacted him as a person. Between the struggles and success that he faced throughout his life, he never lost sight of what his true goals were. This book can be read by the whole family. Even if youre not a football fan, this book is very influential and shows how to be thankful for everything. When Tony says, Let go. Let God it is showing how that impacted his life and giving God the power, will lead you to the right direction.

    "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.
