Book Review Jan 9, 2010
I received the book quick delivery and in good condition. The book itself was a gift and they enjoyed the reading. Jim Tressel has other books on this site to order and read!!!
More "self help" than I thought Nov 27, 2009
This was more of a self help book than I expected or needed but it is a good read with a lot of great quotes. I got it because I am fan of coach Tressel and O.S.U. Go Bucks!
Fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals Oct 27, 2009
This is a book about the fundamentals it takes to succeed at any endeavor you wish to pursue. Tressel hits the nail on the head and I'm glad to see he steps up to the plate and shares his Christian faith. There are quotes and stories throughout the book you'll want to highlight and re-read. You don't need to be a football fan to appreciate the lessons found in the book. However, if you are a college football fan I highly recommend this. I'm a USC Trojan fan but after reading this book I'll be hoping Ohio State wins on Saturdays too (except when they play USC).
Gratitude, Humility and Hard Work Sep 9, 2009
Gratitude, humility and hard work are the cornerstones of Jim Tressel's THE WINNERS MANUEL. Given to each of his OSU players at the start of new season, the manuel lays out Tressel's philosophy of life and coaching. Familiar, but not corny; straight forward, but not boring, Tressel always brings the discussion around to the importance of gratitude, humility and hard work, three virtues that he has built his career around and wants his OSU players to copy. The major weakness of the book is when he attempts to theologize and yet not offend in regard to Jesus. Still, its very hard to be overly critical of such a likeable public figure.
Great Read Jul 1, 2009
Great read for fans, but even better read for coaches and leaders. No wonder they have been so successful
