“If you’re struggling with your place in the world, if things have become difficult and you feel like giving up, this little book will encourage you, lift you up when you’re wrestling with life, push you forward, and motivate you to be a better person– and a more vital part of whatever team you serve.” ~ Jim Tressel, head football coach, Ohio State
Within the 200 pages of Jim Tressel‘s book, Life Promises Success, encouragement and motivation are the theme. Though he uses a few illustrations from the college gridiron, this book is not about football. Instead, Tressel uses his platform as a Christian head coach of one of most successful college football programs in the United States to write an easy to read book that encourages us all in the game of life.
Coach Tressel’s book, Life Promises Success, is written in a way to be easy to read… with notable quotes, applicable Bible verses and inspiring readings. This book can be read in one sitting or used as a daily motivational tool. Anyone seeking success in life, whether at home, work or school, will be motivated by Coach Tressel’s words.
Though we are not Buckeye fans in this house, I am glad that I had the opportunity to review Jim Tressel’s book. I love the fact that each little life lesson was written with at least 3 Bible verses that coincide with Coach’s motivating words. I expected this book to be about football and Coach Jim Tressel, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book is much more about God and His Word.
Life Promises Success by Jim Tressel will be released by Tyndale Publishers in March of 2011.
