Customers who bought this item also bought
The inspirational story of Marc Trestman comes to life in the pages of Perseverance, a poignant yet heart-warming motivational-biography that will challenge you to achieve heights you never dreamed possible. For more than three decades now, Marc has been on a football odyssey of sorts in which he has coached with eight NFL franchises, two NCAA Division I programs, and another in the Canadian Football League, where he won a Grey Cup championship in 2009 as the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes. Along the way, Marc has seen the best and worst of times as it relates to winning and losing at the highest levels of the game. Through his associations and friendships with countless coaches and players, he has amassed a travelogue of life lessons that will not only capture your imagination, they will change your perspective and outlook on life. Mixed in between Marc's unique ideologies and philosophies on team-building, trust and leadership, are anecdotes, quotes, funny stories, and nuggets of wisdom which provide a unique insight into the secrets of his success. Marc's passion for helping others to be the best that they can be is a message that resonates in the locker room as well as in the board room. With it, he shows that through hard work, commitment and a positive attitude, you can overcome any obstacle or adversity in life and truly... persevere.

I'm sure that it was largely the football fan that had me turning the pages so fast, also watching his early years with my Cleveland Browns that had me intrigued in the first place. Walking away from the book I know that I'm a better man and a better leader if I take the simple principals he writes of and apply them to my business and my employees. Getting people to see the best they have to offer and showing them how to "win the day", while never being bigger than the team, is the ultimate accomplishment in any setting. No matter your sports allegiance or where you are in life, this book is an inspiration to anyone that wants to persevere and rise to their greatest ability... and do it the right way.
Congratulations for all the good things that happen in your life Marc, you've earned them...
I'd recommend it to all who are looking for an interesting/unique autobiography that will not only make for a good read, but also open your mind to how coaches can successfully communicate with others with the utmost amount of respect.
A huge fan....
