Review

Game Plan for Life is a great guide to successful living. Joe Gibbs has always been driven, and unwilling to settle for second best. Whatever challenge he’s undertaken, he has always delivered championship results. Once again, he’s done it at a Super Bowl level. (Tony Dungy) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

How do you define success?
Not many people rise to the top of two elite, highly competitive professions in their lifetime, but that is exactly what 3-time Super Bowl champion and 3-time NASCAR champion Joe Gibbs has done.
Now, for the first time, Coach Gibbs shares the principles that have guided him to success in every area of his life and explains how you can make those same principles work for you.
Join Joe and his team of experts as they walk you through the greatest playbook for modern-day success ever written—the Bible—and address the eleven issues a national survey identified as the most important ones facing men today:
  • Finances: How do I master my money? RON BLUE
  • Health: How do I achieve peak physical and emotional health? DR. WALT LARIMORE
  • Relationships: What does God say about marriage and sex? DON MEREDITH
  • Vocation: How do I build a successful life and career? DR. OS GUINNESS
  • The Bible: Can I believe it? JOSH MCDOWELL
  • God: Who is He? DR. KEN BOA
  • Creation: How did life begin? DR. JOHN LENNOX
  • Sin and Addiction: How do I deal with sin? RAVI ZACHARIAS
  • Salvation: How do I get on the winning team? CHUCK COLSON
  • Purpose: How do I get the most out of life? DR. TONY EVANS
  • Heaven: Where will I spend eternity? RANDY ALCORN
Discover the playbook for true success in your life. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Joe Gibbs has had an incredible professional career in sports - three-time Super Bowl winning head coach of the Washington Redskins and owner of a three-time NASCAR championship team that has nearly 500 employees - but it was never a clear trail to the winner's circle.

He has stumbled off the path and needed to double-back a few times due to feeling that he had all the questions and answers to life. Yes, this successful head coach sometimes thought he could outsmart the Head Coach.

"Life to me is a game, and you and I are the players. God is our Head Coach, and no one wants to lose the biggest game of all," writes Gibbs. "In the game of life, our Head Coach loved us enough to send His Son to die for our sins."

Christian faith is the cornerstone to gaining a true understanding to the meaning of life - through the Head Coach (God) and Playbook (the Bible) - and Gibbs utilizes personal accounts that are candid and conversational in tone to set the foundation for tackling a number of issues within the 14 chapters of Game Plan for Life: Your Personal Playbook for Success (2009 hardcover; Tyndale House Publishers).

Gibbs personally commissioned a respected national public opinion research firm to survey men and find out what they are most concerned about and where they'd like to have success in their lives. It revealed 11 areas of prime concern - including health, finances, relationships and overcoming sin - which then allowed him to develop a team of experts to address each topic.

"See, the bottom line is that I have found something special, something that works, something that has given me a sense of peace and purpose and fulfillment.

Format: Hardcover
Joe Gibbs - the man behind Joe Gibbs Racing (NASCAR) and two stints as head coach of the Washington Redskins - has released a book with his new "team" of experts.

Game Plan for Life is written for men. But I don't understand why women couldn't have been involved as experts. Maybe it's just his way. (But don't be offended, it's still a great book)

Each chapter is devoted to an area of life men are concerned about. Gibbs asks 11 different people to address each topic after he shares a few pages from his own life.

The topics include:
Finances by Ron Blue
Health by Dr Walt Larimore
Relationships by Don Meredith
Vocation by Dr Os Guinness
The Bible by Josh McDowell
God by Dr Ken Boa
Creation by Dr John Lennox
Sin and Addiction by Ravi Zacharias
Salvation by Chuck Colson
Purpose by Dr Tony Evans
Heaven by Randy Alcorn

As a fan of football and those who profess to be followers of Christ in the national media, I greatly enjoyed reading about the struggles and success of Coach Gibbs and how he became a devoted man of God.

I have been reading Joe Gibbs book "game plan for life" and wanted to share my thoughts so others will also read this book. I was expecting a book like Tony Dungy's. I really enjoyed his book and was hoping for another good one. As I started reading Gibbs book, I realized that his book is much deeper than Dungy's. Game plan for life goes deeper into topics of Christianity and lets ones know the truth about various topics.

This book is broken up by various authors who share their thoughts on various topics. Gibbs selected various ones who are educated in certain areas to share their thoughts.

Football is mentioned in this book, but it is not the main topic in this book. Gibbs does a good job of introducing different religious topics.

I would recognmend checking this book out at your local bookstore.

I bought and read this based on the reviews and my high opinion of Joe Gibbs. The book however was handed off to too many different people whose stories and opinions I was not looking for, and I didn't find Gibb's stories very insightful.

This is an inspiring book.Joe Gibbs is a great man, and tells us all how God led him to overcome obstacles and become the incredibly successful and happy man he is today. An easy read, and his co-authors are wonderful. All three, Joe Gibbs, God, and this book are winners.

My husband and I are reading this along with the members of our Sunday school class. We cover a chapter each week, so we're only about 1/3 of the way through it so far, but we and everyone in the class (men and women) are enjoying it a great deal! Coach Gibbs has gathered some great people to help him address topics everything from addiction to salvation and MORE! This is an easy and inspiring read!
