Dungy really wants to guide men in our society through this book. He has some wonderful advice. A couple of my favorite thoughts: "One of the most important things I have learned along the way is having the courage to stand by my convictions--those things that I know are right, those guiding principles that I know to stick with. Sometimes that means standing out from the crowd or not being popular, but sometimes that's the only responsible place to be" (29 - 30) "True respect starts with the way you treat others, and it is learned over a lifetime of acting with kindness, honor, and dignity" (178) Dungy also quotes Mark Twain: "Explore, Dream, Discover" (29). A book with good messages, but if you are not religious or are not open to religion, then you may not like this book. ( )

Book description
FROM THE PUBLISHER: Super Bowl-winning coach and #1 New York Times best selling author Tony Dungy has had an unusual opportunity to reflect on what it takes to achieve significance. He is looked to by many as the epitome of the success and significance that is highly valued in our culture. He also works every day with young men who are trying to achieve significance through football and all that goes with a professional athletic career-such as money, power, and celebrity. Coach Dungy has had all that, but he passionately believes that there is a different path to significance, a path characterized by attitudes, ambitions, and allegiances that are all too rare but uncommonly rewarding. Uncommon reveals lessons on achieving significance that the coach has learned from his remarkable parents, his athletic and coaching career, his mentors, and his journey with God. A particular focus of the book: what it means to be a man of significance in a culture that is offering young men few positive role models.
