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!
When Dungy, coach of the Indianapolis Colts, led his team to a Super Bowl victory in 2007, he became the first African American to claim this accomplishment, but this is not a story of overcoming racial barriers. Coach Dungy is a remarkably humble man, whose strong religious beliefs are a constant guide and comfort to him. He has a keen wit and a clever mind. He explains the sorrowful experience of his son's suicide in a manner so personally revealing that a listener cannot help being moved. Peter Jay Fernandez provides a compelling narrative that matches the character of this book perfectly. Every so often, a remarkable sports biography emerges, and this is one of them. Strongly recommended. [Quiet Strength was a New York Times best seller.--Ed.]--Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
