Great book, message and man.
I wanted to give it 4 stars just because its Bobby Bowden
It's an "ok" book. I wanted to give it 4 stars just because I have a lot of respect for Coach Bowden but the book was just "ok". It kind of skimmed over a lot of things and just seemed to be short of content. Such as the forced retirement or his feeling about Terry's experience at Auburn. Still a decent read.
