I enjoyed reading Coach Tressel's earlier New York Times Best-seller. However I was dismayed to discover that his follow-up, Life Promises for Success was going to be a gift book-sized outing.
Like other gift books, this is a small hardcover book filled with Bible verses on specific topics followed by the author's quick thoughts. Sometimes they include a quote from some famous person as well.
I don't understand the purpose of these books. Is it so those who don't know what to get someone can have an easy gift?
Does anyone actually read these books all the way through?
You get almost 200 pages of Bible verses, famous quotes and the quick thoughts of Ohio State Buckeyes football coach Jim Tressel.
Breaking it down into 3 parts, you'll read about:
The Essence of Success, The Elements of Success (such as Discipline, Belief, Integrity, all the big ones) and The Epitome of Success.
My only advice is that you get this book if you are a die-hard Tressel fan or if you need to get a friend something and don't have a clue.
