Overview

All In: What It Takes to Be the Best by Gene Chizik, David Thomas, Mack Brown

Gene Chizik was the coach that nobody wanted . . . until he accomplished more than anyone ever dreamed.

All In chronicles the remarkable journey of Gene Chizik, who in two short years went from being the much-maligned 5–19 coach of the Iowa State Cyclones to the undefeated AP SEC Coach of the Year of the 2010 national champion Auburn Tigers.

Coach Chizik shares never-before-told stories about his controversial head coaching career—from his highly contentious departure from Iowa State and his heavily criticized appointment at Auburn to his historic 2010 championship run and all the unexpected twists, turns, tragedies, and triumphs along the way. As he recounts his journey, he opens up about the pivotal role his faith has played in his life and career, and he shares his time-tested secrets to success, both on and off the field.

All In is an inspirational must-read for football fans everywhere.

All In provides insight into the exciting 2010 Auburn football season which culminated in a National Championship and so much more. The book is an indepth review of the professional life of Coach Gene Chizik who has won numerous coaching awards as well as football conference championships and 2 national championships. At this time, he has coached / participated in 10 bowl games and won 10 bowl games. Even more important than the information about football and Coach Chizik's professional career, is the insight into his personal life, the challenges he has met and the significant role faith plays in every aspect of his life. It is a fascinating book which is well written and explores many facets of Coach Chizik's life and career.

If you are down in Faith in God, you need to read this. Even if it is about football, it gives off a great message. It is a great faith and trust booster for all Christians, and football fans. It also tells the story of a coach, and how he made it to where he is today, through all the struggles. ALL IN! WAR EAGLE!
