The Goal and the Glory Jun 28, 2008
Never has there been a need greater than now for roll models, mentors, people just like you and me, who can show us how to overcome all of our adversities and become victorious in our goals. These are real people with moral character who show, by their everyday lives, that we can be champions also. I loved this book. Reading it made me a better person, wife, friend, and athlete. It challenged and inspired me. After reading it I accomplished the goal of a triathlon and I am 56 years old. Thank you Josh Davis for believing in yourself and allowing others to do the same. You and all of the athletes in your book are my hero's.
Awesome Source of Inspiration Jun 11, 2008
A great read for athletes and non-athletes alike. Short stories that are very applicable. A great resource for pastors and youth pastors for short illustrations as well. This book would be a great gift for encouragement and inspiration. Its exciting to read these stories and be able to watch some of these athletes complete at the Olympics this summer!
