I thought this book was very well written. I appreciate Tony opening up about personal things with out invading family privacy. Tony and Nathan derserve a big thumbs up on this one. Nathan did an excellent job of capturing Tony's thoughts and emotions. I would recommend this book to anyone. I already let my nephew borrow my copy.
One word: Excellent! I love watching football on t.v., but I know that what you see on t.v. in a game is totally not all there is to it. There are the days of practicing, careful planning, and preparation, and none of those things is easy. Tony Dungy uses his faith in God to help him through trials off and on the field. His testimony is a great example to a lot of people, myself included. READ THIS BOOK!!! It is worth the time!
This is a book you will not be able to put down. Even if you're not a football fan, you will love Tony Dungy's faithful walk with the Lord. Tony keeps his eyes on Jesus during his struggles and his victories. He is truly a man of faith.
Quiet Strength is not totally a recollection of the football career of Tony Dungy. Rather, along with his career and the things he went through his entire life to get where he is at, he explains his methods of doing things, and that starts with one thing; God.Many people do not put their religion before anything else, and that is what is so unique about Tony Dungy, as a coach and as a person. His philosophy is first religion, then family, then friends, then football. I found that very great about him, and I think it is easy to see he is a decent person.Tony Dungy started out playing sports at a very young age, and he started playing football with his father by playing catch with his father at Michigan when he was getting his P.h.D. Somehow his father had time for him, even while going through this stressful time.Dungy played basketball and football in high school, and he actually liked basketball more at the time. He played quarterback in high school, and became a team captain. While this occurred, one of the receivers that was one of his friends did not get captain, and this made Tony angry. So he decided to quit the team in order to show the coach that he would not play with this.But, Tony realized that the decision was not his, and he decided he wanted to play that year. So he had to apologize to the coach to get back on, which made him mad, but he did anyway. This is one of the examples of the life lessons Tony learned that helped him become a better person; Sometimes things are out of your hands, and you just have to deal with it. Overall, this book is a great read, and is great inspiration for those who want to obtain good values. There is a reason this is the only sports autobiography ever to become a best-seller, and thats because you get so much out of it.
