    Great book about an American legend

    I'm not a big football fan, but Bobby Bowden's book is one of the most inspirational stories I've ever read. He really followed God's path for his life and never wavered in his belief in faith through many trials and tribulations. "Called To Coach" is much, much more than a book about a football book. It is a book about the story of a great man, leader and mentor to thousands of young men over the last half-century. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about raising our children and teaching them to do things the right way.

    A must buy

    If you are a Florida State fan or just a college football fan, you need to purchase this book. Bobby Bowden is a great man and im glad to have read his story.

    he's a great coach. a bit of a dick, off the field. I've met him, paterno, and a few other coaches. outside of the last couple years i think him and paterno are similar.

    A Great Story of a Christian in Action

    I loved the story of how Coach Bowden took his Christian Faith into the locker room and onto the field, and all phases of his life. His story of coaching college football was exciting to read, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next.

    A must read about a great coach for any college football fan....

    Called to coach is a great book about the legend Bobby Bowden. He recalls his legendary career in honest straightforward style.He is a man of true faith who always tried to guide his players in the right life path.He recounts personal tragedys in the same honest style as he does his success in life.In regard to his leaving FSU he relates his position and feelings with candor and honesty.If you expect him to rip the school the athletic department or the administration,you will be disappointed.This in my opinion is as it should be.If you want a tell all book dont look here. If you want an honest story of a lengendary man of faith and class,i have never read a better one.
