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.Read more ›
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.
I would highly recommend for anyone, not just sports fans!!
