Book Review: Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices, & Priorities of a Winning Life by Tony Dungy, Nathan Whitaker, and Denzel Washington

A fantastic first hand look into the life of Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy. According to Dungy, there is much more to life than coaching professional sports and winning the Super Bowl. In fact, faith through Jesus Christ provides the direction for all his decisions, both on and off the field.

When other coaches, players, and media members said his "soft" approach to the game simply wouldn't work, Dungy stuck to his plan, and silenced the critics by winning the Super Bowl in 2006. However, even on that grand stage, he took time to remember the important aspects of life: faith, family, and relationships.

His incredible journey through life forces the reader to reflect on what really matters. Is it my job? Am I living the life I really want to live? Am I living the life God wants me to live? Dive into the novel to find out!

A must read for the sports and entertainment fan!
