Editorial Reviews

Famed NFL linebacker Dhani Jones will need more than shoulder pads where he’s going. He’ll be embarking on a global sports odyssey that will take him from Australia’s shores to the mountains of Switzerland! Being the top athlete he is, he throws himself into everything from Ireland’s hurling to Russia’s Sambo fighting. More than a football player, he’s also a true Renaissance man. He explores each country’s culture by getting to know the locals, taking in the sights and indulging in its cuisine. Experienced by Dhani Jones, this eye-opening, high-energy adventure reveals the world as you’ve never seen it before!

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to season 2 December 18, 2009
By MOrn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great show. I really enjoy the production values, but most importantly you can really see that Dhani Jones absolutely loves what he is doing. Whether he is training in the local sport, eating the local cuisine, getting beat up, gasping for air cause he sucks at a sport, or visiting a landmark of cultural significance, he shows a sense of humor along with a but of competitive edge. I also like how he gets drunk in a couple of episodes. Plus as a man, I can take a few fashion cues from Dhani. This guy is pretty stylish. More so than Bourdain and Zimmeran. If Dhani needed to improve on something it would be his voice overs. They need to sound more natural and less scripted. But thats a nitpick. And at $19 for a whole season, you can't beat it. I wish Travel would put out blu rays as I know this show rocks in hidef!!! There's more countries and sports to tackle so I am definitely lookin forward to season 2. If you watch this I'm sure you'll agree.

5.0 out of 5 stars From one San Diegan to another: GREAT SHOW! December 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dhani Jones really makes this program. Great personality, sense of humor and a natural in front of the camera. Locations are interesting with a novel approach to learning about other locations from a sports angle. Dhani completely throws himself into each cultural experience. I especially got a kick out of the extra challenges he faced, good-naturedly, in the Cambodia episode. This man has a whole other career waiting for him once he leaves football. I predict we'll be seeing a lot more of him in the future.

Interesting locales, challenges, beautiful photography and a host who feels like a best friend--how can you go wrong? Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concept....Dhani rules! April 17, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series has a compelling blend of sport and culture, with the sweat and smiles to match. Dhani does a yeoman's job in both exploring the places he visits, as well as competing at the local pastimes which can all be quite dangerous in themselves. Well done and highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dhani Tackles the Globe February 5, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw these episodes when they premiered on the Travel Channel last Spring and it is such a smart, funny, energetic and educational show. Dhani is the perfect host to take you on these journeys as he gives you a revealing glimpse into each culture while he trains to compete in that particular countries native sport. He really inspires you to get out and travel and discover something new in each episode of the show and he is really funny and seems truly humbled by his experiences and the people he encounters at each turn.

Each episode has a different feel and mood and that is in large part due to the varied cultures and beliefs held by each country and how they regard their sport at the highest level and Dhani has an amazing respect and thirst for knowledge for each sport he tackles. I picked up on little things that I missed the first time I saw each episode after watching the DVDs and there are additional scenes as well. Great buy and highly recommend "Dhani Tackles the Globe" I am equally excited for the new season to air April 19th!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring January 24, 2014
By Y. Rose
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I didn't know about this show while it was on the air, so I purchased the DVD to see how Dhani handled trying many different sports. It's a great example that you don't have to pigeonhole yourself doing only one thing in life. Be willing to branch out, take chances and have a good time doing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good entertainment August 16, 2013
By Matt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This dvd set is good...but like most things, the book is better. This review could very well be a plug for the book (its that good). The dvd journey is inspiring though. I love to travel to places I've never been, so to see the places Dhani traveled is really cool. Overall the series is good...but the book is better.
