Editorial Reviews

Review

This is not a book about football. It is a book about choices. Choices made by remarkable men who play the game of football. You may not be an All-Pro football player, but you can choose to live an All-Pro life. --NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

Matt Birk's blend of Harvard smarts and NFL experience will score points with any audience. A dynamic speaker and expert storyteller, Matt has a winning style that informs and inspires. Put Matt at the center of your next conference or presentation. --Harvey Mackay, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Swim With The Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive

Rich is a man of principle. He has been an inspiration to his associates, and to our organization. His insights, mentoring, and practical advice have made me a better leader. --Alan Tubbs, CEO and Chairman of Ohnward Bancshares and former President of the American Bankers Association

The WOW bonus it this is a book that young men and grown men can both dig into it for an afternoon and start some introspective wheels turning.

You don’t have to love football to gain from the messages in this book.

Oddly- I have some BIG KUDOS to the actual book production: It’s an unusual size book, with really nice thick pages with lots of pictures and bold color. I love the larger font print that makes you feel like you are eating through the pages at light speed. It is heavy in hardcover and feels substantial. The content reads like a cool textbook that has been slathered with high quality photos (about every five pages- Yes I counted there were so many). The bold pictures immediately make the topic feel current and inviting when you pick through it. The cover looks serious because these are serious messages but book designer made this book a total BUY-BUY-BUY in the gift category for me. ( not to discount the master text- the creative team that put the book together really offered a talented display)

As a community leader and as an executive I buy and recommend books for many people. I deeply appreciate what’s UNDER the eye candy glossy pages being many important messages to young men. Messages that are presented in a very personal way:

Here are my favorite nuggets that we can all enjoy from a Super Bowl Champion:

Choose and understand your identity. Furthermore that Identity is shown by what you do consistently
.
Start where you are and start today.

Winners focus on execution (things they can control) and losers focus on results (things they cannot control.)

Turn from a “help me” messages in your internal faith language to “thank you” for this moment.

We all need mentors that support us.

I am a MBA student at Stanford Business School, and picked up this book because I was intrigued by the unique combination: an All-Pro NFL player teaming up with a business leader? This is certainly a different approach--and I'm so glad I gave it a shot.

In our Stanford MBA program, we have read most of the classic management and leadership texts--and I have found this book to be the most crisp, actionable, and impactful book on leadership and self-awareness I've read to date.

Where other books lost me in broad theories, rigid frameworks, or "best practices" that are difficult to implement, this book quickly drills down to the questions core to any leader (or any organization/company for that matter):

- Who am I?
- What is my purpose?
- What defines my character?
- What are my goals?
- How am I going to grow today?

This book doesn't force-feed you the right answers, it simply serves up the right questions--and shows you how a handful of inspirational people approach them everyday. It's understated and effective.

Rather than using dated examples from decades (or centuries) ago, this book is fresh--utilizing the first-hand anecdotes of respectable pro athletes sprinkled with real-world business insights, making it a fast, entertaining, and memorable read.

I believe this will prove to be an important book, and one that will benefit a wide-range of readers, from business executives to young athletes. In fact, I just bought copies of the book for both my corporate strategy professor and my college-aged nephew.

This book helped me to refocus on what I need to do right now. Making the BIG goals more doable in small, bite size + actionable steps. My take-away: What is the best I can do right now.

This book is an excellent choice to help re-focus your personal goals. I would also highly recommend this book to share with atheletes at any age level. Matt Birk is a wonderful role model. The book reminds us that personal goals in athletics or other areas are wonderful achievements, but don't define us. Character defines us, our relationship with God defines us, our families define us. Get back on the right track today & read this book!

On the heels of the Super Bowl, a friend of mine told me about “All-Pro Wisdom.” While I’m not a huge football fan, I really enjoyed the book. The authors present empowering leadership strategies that really resonated with me. If you are in management, you will find this book helpful in your quest to inspire others.

The book isn't too long of a read and keeps you interested the entire time. I couldn't put it down. I probably finished the book in less than a week that's how much i was reading it. This would be a good gift for any football fan, or just someone who is an avid reader looking for some guidance.
