My Thoughts:

Tony Dungy takes you through his life starting as a football player and his move onto football coaching eventually leading to his team - the Indianapolis Colts' victory in the Superbowl held in 2007. Throughout the book he emphasizes about the morals and principles instilled in him by his parents and also about his christian calling and how they helped in shaping the person that he was/is today.

Overall - a very inspiring and feel-good book. And you don't have to know football to read the book - he explains pretty clearly about the various plays, people and games as and when he refers to them in the book, however I would say knowledge of the game would surely help you appreciate the book better because most of the people and incidents referred to in the book are involved with football.

The one thing I really liked about this book is that it is NOT preachy!!!

My take on this book: This is a good, inspiring book and recommended particularly for people who have even the slightest interest in American football.
