Coming back Stronger
Unleashing the hidden power of Adversity
By Drew Brees with Chris Fabry
Forward by Mark Brunell
First off, let me say, I'm not a big football fan, and I don't watch too many professional sports. I've never been enamored with the glamour and hype that seems to draw a lot of people to read or make heros out of athletes. So you probably ask why I signed up to read and review this book. I didn't intend to, and passed it by a couple of times, but I kept coming back, and it was still available. I think it was meant to be, that I read it.
Drew Brees really pretty much tells how it was, from high school and college sports, to being drafted into professional football. It can be, and many times is, a hard life, no matter what the pay. How injuries and bad seasons can effect even the most dedicated player. How he had to work to recover from a bad shoulder seperation, and what it was like, the year after Katrina hit New Orleans, for the people there, the team with a new coach, and never having won a championship. And then you fast forward to the 2009-10 season, when they managed to pull out a Super Bowl Victory, losing his mother just before that season started.
So you say you aren't a sports fan? Read this book, you may not be a sports fan when you finish it, but you will have a lot of respect for a Quarterback named Drew Brees
