Review: Coach on Success

Success Bookso this time around, I’ve been reading a devotional book from Tyndale called “Life Promises for Success” by Jim Tressel.  Tressel is the acclaimed head coach of Ohio State University’s football team, and the winner of a couple of national championships, so I guess its okay for him to write about success.

i’ve purposely taken a few extra days weeks to go through this book because: A) i take a bit of a different approach with devotionals since they’re meant to be read daily in chunks rather than in a one or few short spurts as a whole, and B) i’m always skeptical of a book promising secrets to success – Christian or not.

i like this devotional.  i’m going to keep going through it.  it has great insights, and at times, i find it turns the definitions that i have of success on their ears and offers a newer perspective that seems – different, and – more right.  the book itself doesn’t shy away from success either, it actually encourages the enjoyment (but not the getting caught up in) of success, no matter what level it happens on.

Tyndale gave me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review of it, meaning i get to say what i want about it.  and i like it.  i’m giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
