"J. C. Watts has given us a gift, offering lessons about how to 'do life better' with vivid examples, practical disciplines, and firsthand knowledge. He teaches us in detail what to do and why. He goes to the Source of life for his references and writes in a way that is both intriguing and easily remembered. This is a great tool for all of us."
Tom Coburn, former U.S. senator from Oklahoma
"I knew J. C. Watts long before he was one of America's most respected politicians. He is a man of great vision and compassion. Once you open this remarkable book and hear the heart of this great statesman, you won’t put it down."
Dr. Larry L. Thompson, senior pastor, First Baptist Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
"J. C. Watts has had to 'dig deep' many times in his life, and I find his reflections on those experiences and the lessons he draws from Scripture incredibly helpful. The chapter on the six enemies of self-discipline is a must-read!"
Matt Rose, executive chairman, Burlington Northern Santa Fe
"It's the perspective of a man of faith that sets this book apart from so many others that are intended to help the reader achieve at a higher level. Sharing not just his wisdom but also God’s wisdom, J. C. Watts provides insights that are truly transformative. He has excelled in several highly competitive arenas. He was a great quarterback at the University of Oklahoma, and in the professional ranks, he was successful in state and national politics, serving four terms in Congress, and he has had great success in the business world. None of this success has come easily. Reminding us that adversity is a great teacher, he offers strategies to sharpen your resolve and your skills as you move through times of difficulty."
Tom Osborne, former head football coach, University of Nebraska, and former member of Congress
