The Making of a Man

While I am not familiar with the work of Tim Brown, the men in my family know him and admire his athletic accomplishments.  What I read in this book is more than just feats of strength in his football career but the truths that he lives by.

Unlike most kids, Tim Brown did not dream of becoming an NFL legend.  He played a sport that got him a scholarship, and he worked hard at it.  That hard work paid off as he became an Oakland Raiders.  Yet football was not his life.  His life included faith, family, and football.

I admire a man who admits his struggles and mistakes because he learned from them.  He shares 20 things he learned that he wants to pass onto other men.  Even as a woman, I learned from him and hope many others can take his message and apply it to their lives.

Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.
