This is a 256 page book is a biography of Jon Gruden's life as a football coach. He tells about his hardships and his accomplishments. You can really fallow along and understand where he's coming from. Reading this book not only gives you an insite on his football belief, but also helps you learn more about how the NFl works. This book is unique because it's Gruden's beliefs. It's completely his side. This book is a really good book if your looking into a career as a coach. I'd say the only bad...more

This book is a must for all football fans. An insiders journey from little boy to the head coach of a Super Bowl winning team-Gruden takes us along with wonderful stories and memories from an incredible life in football. I have a new appreciation and a new respect for the man after reading this book. I enjoy his antics in the MNF booth but would much prefer to see him on the sidelines coaching an NFL team. Heres hoping he comes back to the fold one day soon.
This book was written just after the Super Bowl win by the Bucs in 2003 and I was interested in learning more about Gruden. It did not disappoint into giving me more insight into him since he is a former quarterback who never played in the NFL and now it helps to understand his love of quarterbacks. I did appreciate him talking about the Bucs defense he inherited and it was pretty interesting to see how small the coaching world is in the NFL and NCAA.
Anyone who loves 'Chuckie' would enjoy this book. Gruden explains how is strong obsession for football was created and how it translates to his everyday life. Recommend for football junkies (he takes you through his earliest years coaching and inside the meeting and locker rooms on some memorable games & times in NFL history.)

Not quite as substantive as Tony Dungy's books, but I would still give this a shot.

Nice little biopic about Gruden who I love as a head coach. You get inside his head a bit and see what makes him tick. You quickly realize he is just such a student of the game that he coached the right way and was a players coach. Everything I expected from it - a little history, a little insight, a little cheese factor. Not bad at all.
This book was recommended to me after I read The Blind Side by Michael Lewis. It was interesting, informative, and a passionate recount of Gruden's success. However, Gruden is not a writer, so at times it felt like I was reading a young adult sports book.
AMAZING sports read from the most passionate and intense NFL head coach!
