Editorial Reviews

Review

“Donald’s contribution to the history of the Packers has been extraordinary, exceeded only by his personal story.”  -Bart Starr, Green Bay Packers quarterback, 1956-1971, and head coach, 1975-1983

"A great teammate…That he could go from a seventh-round draft choice to the Packers' all-time leading receiver is a real tribute to him." - Brett Favre, Packers quarterback, 1992-2007

 “ Where he made that mark was in between the numbers; his toughness, his ability to run after the catch and his willingness to always put the team first. When I looked and saw him wearing the No. 80, it made me proud” -James Lofton, Packers Wide Receiver, 1978-1986
 
 “Donald is so humble, so supportive, so caring and that's right in line with the way I feel we all should be.” -Gladys Knight, 7 Time Grammy Award Winner
 
 “Donald is truly 1 in a million. The Packers better retire that #80 jersey!” -Peta Murgatroyd, Dancing with the Stars Champion

Format: Hardcover
Driven: From Homeless to Hero, My Journeys On and Off Lambeau Field, the story of the legendary NFL receiver for the Green Bay Packers, Donald Driver, is the stuff dreams are made of. It is a truly inspiring story of a great sportsperson who decides to do his bit to serve humanity through charitable works.

But life didn't start so well for him. Rather, he was brought up under the most difficult of situations. It was only his grit and determination that forced him to overcome one obstacle after another. This memoir of a great champion of the game he loved so much, and the less privileged he has dedicated his life to serve will inspire everyone who reads Driven, and learn valuable life-lessons which he wishes to pass on to others.

The book serves as reminder to everyone that we may not have the perfect start in life, but it is up to us to make a perfect ending. It is a great reminder of the age-old truth: Where there is a will, there is a way! If your heart beats for the game of football, the Green Bay Packers or the homeless mothers and underprivileged children, this book is a must read.

The way he described particular games, it was like watching them all over again. What an inspiration, and what a down to earth guy.
Makes me sad to realize the "business" of football, but the way he handled it for the love of his family and his fans speaks volumes. It amazes me that while we as fans demand loyalty, its amazes me even more when it's given.
*Bravo Donald...BRAVO!
