Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tony Dungy Shottler book review For my Book review project I read Tony Dungy's book, Quiet Strength. I dont read that often, so when assigned a project that involved reading a book, I was not very enthused to say the least, but I felt like there was something diffrent about this book, with each page I wanted to read another, with each detail I seemed to be forced to want another. This book chronilogicly took me through Dungy's life in order, starting with his childhood and home life. The book vividly describes a vast amont of important moments in his life, including his time in Tampa Bay, with the buccaneers. Ironicly the book took me throug his High School years were he played both Basketball and Football, even though his passion was solly on basketball, and then continues through his college years where he was a Big Ten quarterback at the University of Minnesota, and his three year career and switch to a defensive player in the NFL, not basketball. I felt a very despondent section of the book was when his son commited suicide, right here in Tampa Bay, wich made Dungy, an already huge family first type of guy, even closer to his family. After reading the book it seems to make you think about your own life in diffrent ways, and what you feel is most important. Fame and money,or family and friends? Even after puting the book down I could not help but ponder my own life, and the situatuions I have been in. Through the high's and low's of the book, you almost seem to be there with Dungy, living his life Constantly I compared and contrasted our two lifes. Dungy's words made me realize that even a famous football coach like himself, He still had a fairly normal upbringing, just like me, you and the next guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet Strength Quiet Strength was made by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker. The book talks about how Tony is successful in life and how he handles being a coach, and as a person. Tony was on the Pittsburg Steelers and 49ers before he retired. After Tony retired, a few years later he became the defensive corrdinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After defeating the Oakland Raiders, Tony took the Head Coaching job for the Indianapolis Colts. He enjoyed it very much. But what happened to Jason, he was upset about. He kept coaching and helped the Colts win 12 games. But they lost to the Steelers. In the book, Tony teaches you that you have to have confidence in yourself. Winning is not everything, but its nice to win! I would say Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy along with Nathan Whitaker did a great job on this book because he and Nathan did a far-fetched job on writing this book, and definitely should feel good that they wrote a novel that doesn't only talk about football. But how to live a better life in general. I would recommend this book to anyone to see who Tony Dungy really is. Also his career in football!

He has show you don't have to be forces full but kind and gentle. Even know he went through so many obstacles he managed to be one of the best coaches ever.
