From the Back Cover
That’s when sixth-year veteran Nick Foles came off the bench and led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history―defeating the heavily favored New England Patriots 41–33, winning MVP honors, silencing the critics, and shocking the world.
The story of how Nick, who was on the verge of retirement just two seasons earlier, found the strength to rally those around him and achieve what was heralded as impossible is one of the most inspirational underdog stories in all of sports.
In Believe It, Nick shares the full, unvarnished story behind his unlikely path to Super Bowl glory―the challenges that threatened to hold him back, the struggles that brought him to the verge of retirement, the transformation that made him come back, and the faith that both grounded and guided him every step of the way.
From the flap
People have been trying to define me throughout my entire career.
I’m the guy. I’m not the guy.
I’m mechanically sound. I’m too slow.
I’m able to light up a scoreboard. I’m a game manager.
I’m a building block. I’m a stopgap.
I’m a franchise quarterback. I’m an insurance policy.
I’m a Pro Bowl MVP. I’m a career second-stringer.
I’m dependable. I’m a fluke.
I’m a Super Bowl MVP. I’m trade bait.
I’ve been overlooked, praised, questioned, lauded, labeled, celebrated, and derided―sometimes all in the span of a single week.
That’s life in the NFL.
It took me years to separate Nick Foles the person from Nick Foles the football player. It was a long and, at times, painful process―in fact, I still struggle with it. But making that distinction has completely transformed my heart, my career, my perspective, and my life.
The journey hasn’t always been easy, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes and missteps along the way. But looking back, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t change a thing. Because at the end of the day, the lessons I’ve learned from my failures, struggles, and weaknesses have made me who I am today.

This story was not all football - it is also a touching love story and one that shed quite a lot of light on Tori's struggle with POTS, an illness that affects so many people but is poorly diagnosed. POTS certainly deserves much greater awareness given how misunderstood it is and this book gives it a very real boost. The fact that their relationship blossomed in spite of an incredibly rough period during Tori's illness and while Nick's journey to becoming an amazing quarterback was in full force - not to mention being geographically far apart most of the time - is beyond extraordinary. Pretty amazing story by itself.
The fact that this story unfolded in the city that brought us Rocky Balboa is just icing on the cake!

Foles does a wonderful job of detailing his strengths and weaknesses over time. Emphasis on how his weaknesses and failures enabled him to grow spiritually, as a person and a football player. Amongst the many excellent lessons he learned through these life challenges, he also describes on the field moments in a way that you can visualize the plays as they develop!
If you're someone looking for motivation, facing challenges in your life, wanting to discover how faith can make anything possible...or you're just an Eagles fan wanting to sit back in that moment from Feb 4, 2018, then I would recommend this book.
