Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time he amassed an unparalleled resume—winning two BCS national championships, becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy, and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

Now, in Through My Eyes, Tebow brings readers everywhere an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it, revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tebow has a unique story to tell—from the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took place in between.

At every step, Tebow's life has defied convention and expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-documented, the stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all really happened.

Reading this with my daughter has been a gift I'll treasure forever. I hadn't expected a young man to have much wisdom to share just being so young (and he addresses that nicely), but I have found more than just the story enjoyable - the book has been a great conversation piece for me with my 10 year old daughter. I am grateful Tebow created this story for family and friends to share together. What a gift!

Example - the chapter about Tim's mom's pregnancy impressed me with the delicacy and dignity he (with Nathan Whitaker) uses to offer the story. Here, I had expected a more evangelical Tebow (which I would have been fine with), but it never got "preachy" - just inspiring and touching the heart deeply.

Generally, to me, Tebow seems to present his faith as HIS and absolutely the only right answer FOR HIM. He doesn't express his faith as the only truth for everyone, but rather uses his platform to explain how valuable it has been to him personally. I didn't get the feeling that he was holding himself up as the gold standard whatsoever (again, I might have been just fine with that, because he does seem to be a fine modern example of a young man dealing with fame and faith beautifully, and, besides, I couldn't be offended because I happen to agree with him in this respect).

I am thrilled his story has been genuine, heartfelt and inspiring. And he hasn't really even lived but a small portion of his lifetime yet - so I can't wait for the sequel! :)
I hope that one leads to the greatest heights of his hopefully legendary career. More importantly, a legendary LIFE :)

UPDATE: BOOK SIGNING, TATTERED COVER, DENVER 06-04-11 > What a class act this man is! Took my daughter and my neice to have their books signed.

I'm not an avid football fan, I know the game but I don't follow it every season and was oblivious to Tim Tebow and his career until about a month ago when he started to make headlines for his consecutive 4th Quarter comebacks. When his success brought national attention to his Faith it opened up discussions amongst my family about the negativity displayed toward his praying, particularly by Bill Maher. My sister gifted me "Through My Eyes" for my Kindle on Christmas and I was surprised to learn that one of my peers had already published an autobiography.
I do not have a problem with the age in which he published this memoir, although based on reading other reviews, it seems there are critics. I found it refreshing to hear from someone from my generation who not only has a good head on his shoulders but an impeccable work ethic. In the fashion of a good inspirational sports story, I found myself more motivated to work harder and longer in my training for an upcoming marathon after reading Tim's mantras and about his successes.
I also found myself more motivated to pray. Although I am Christian, I am embarrassingly lackadaisical when it comes to praying and I wouldn't say Tebow's excessive praying guilted me into wanting to be more devout, but he did make me realize where God's presence was missing in my life due to my own neglect.
So based on Tebow's goal of writing an inspirational autobiography, I believe he has succeeded in getting out his message and affecting at least one life. As for the story, his story, I enjoyed reading about his upbringing and collegiate career. There were times when I felt he could have elaborated more on events in his life which he briefly mentions but could have lead to some great stories (i.e.

This is a wonderful story of Tim Tebow's journey to the NFL. It is a very personal and heartwarming book, and gives you his take on all of the media-scrutinized events of his life. I really enjoyed this, and can't wait to read this with my nine year old son.

As a huge LSU fan from Baton Rouge I hated when we played Tebow and Florida but I always respected the man's determination. This book lets you in on his thought process and shows how vital an iron will is to success. This book is like the movie Rudy on steroids as it is not only a motivational read but a look at the dissapointments in life and how you can't let it beat you. I could not be happier with this book and Tebow makes fearing God look cool.

What a fantastic role model is this young man. My husband and I have watched him play football for years and knew that he was going to become one of the greatest to ever play the game, but now we see that his life-view is also remarkable. This is such an inspirational book! I would recommend it to anyone; especially, to young people.

This book has reached the top of my favorite books list:

I realize there are millions of books out there, and I have read lots of them, but for Tim's book to be on the top of my list is pretty good!

Reasons Why I like the book sooo much:
1. I am a christian, like Tebow, so I can relate to him as a fellow brother in Christ
2. Before I read this book, I was missing assignments, doing horribly with schoolwork, and literally being a little aggravating, obnoxious little kid. After I read Tim's book, I was deeply moved and inspired. I started cleaning my act up, and now, I just finished with a 93% on my latin, and got a very nice grade in Literature..
3. Also, I am a homeschooler, so I can also relate to his growing up years just a bit.
4. There are sections (lots of 'em) in his book that have deep wisdom and are very inspiring. One of my all-time favorite quotes is "if there's someone who agrees that Christians don't have to be weak, either in mind, body, or soul, then undertaking this project was the right thing to do, regardless of what the world thinks is the "right time" to write a memoir."
5. This book has totally changed my life....Thanks Tim!

I have become what you might call a Tebow-fanatic...So this review is a BIT biased!!!! lol I hope you know that
Overall, I give this book 5 stars, a 9.8 out of 10, or a 98% epic reading... Just buy it. It will change your life.

UPDATE:
I got the chance to see Tebow speak at conference last March. He is the real deal, people. He is on fire and impassioned for Christ. He's not a fake, and he's not this pious jerk as the media regularly enjoys portraying him.
