    Good for Football Fans

    Robert Griffin III exploded on the NFL scene with style & flair that was anything but typical. With a Heisman Trophy under his belt, Robert otherwise known as RG3, entered the NFL under a spotlight that would make others buckle under pressure. Then the questions began. Could he play as well professionally as he did in College? Could he take his team to the Superbowl?

    Follow Ted Kluck as he shows RG3's determination & skill. How his father helped shape who he is & how he has faith through it all.


    I like RG3 but I just could not get into this book. To me it was more stats than about his life & it was too many numbers for me... I just can't take that much information in. This book would be good for someone like my brother who thrives on stats. I also think it would be great for any football fan.



    *I receive this book for free through the Booksneeze blog program.*

    Robert Lee Griffin III (nicknamed RG3) is an American football q

    Robert Lee Griffin III (nicknamed RG3) is an American football quarterback for the Washington Redskins in the NFL. Griffin played college football for Baylor University, where he won the 2011 Heisman Trophy. He was selected by the Redskins with the second pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.  In 2012 Griffin won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. 




    Personally I know next to nothing about Football, let alone Griffin. But picking up the book as a Christian, I at least expected it to be somewhat about Griffin and how his faith affects his role as a quarterback - or as the title suggests, something perhaps about leadership. But I didn't really get that from this book.




    The book was written by Ted Kluck and for what it's worth, even the author admits that maybe Griffin's "rookie year" isn't the best time to be offering a book about this great player - and after reading it, I think I'd agree. It felt like the author was looking for content to fill a page requirement for the publisher. There is plenty in the book that isn't even about Griffin, but rather about the "role" the quarterback plays on the team.




    I think the book lost it for me in how it was marketed. I think this book could have been about "Kingdom Living" and how no matter what we do - we can be missional in our field of work or play. I think the book could have used football and even Griffin's career as a backdrop illustration and that way the reader would not have been confused into thinking it was a biography. And in a way - that's what this book is! And if you take it like that - it's a really neat book.




    Would I recommend it as a book about leadership? Football or even as a biography about Griffin's life? No, but I would recommend it as a book about how each of us plays a roll in the Kingdom of God.




    Thank you to Thomas Nelson for a free review copy of this book
