Publisher's Summary

NFL All-Pro, sports analyst, and businessman Tim Brown teaches men and boys principles and priorities for life. Every young boy dreams about growing up to be his vision of a man, but what does that look like? What is manhood, really, and how do guys get there?

For some boys their dreams are to be an astronaut, a fireman, or a professional athlete. When legendary coach Lou Holtz told Tim Brown he might be the best football player he'd ever seen it started Tim on a fast track to the Heisman Trophy and playing sixteen seasons for the Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders. While Tim quickly achieved athletic success, he had to work harder off the field to live a life of honor and integrity - two essential cornerstones of manhood. Much more than a sports biography, The Making of a Man reveals Tim's struggles with life and God, his ultimate triumph, and the foundation of faith and family that even today helps him to be one of the most respected men in the world of sports. He shares the importance of a life well-lived and a lasting legacy with stories and lessons on: Practicing thankfulness; Offering forgiveness; Living with humility; Taking responsibility; Facing temptation. These strong principles, woven into the fabric of Tim's remarkable career, not only provide a compelling narrative but challenge all men to measure their life by a higher standard.

Inspiring and empowering book!

Inspiring and empowering book from a man who has made plenty of mistakes yet strives to be a servant of God. Legacy isn't just about football records or accomplishments. It's about how you influence others, lead your family and follow Jesus. Great book!

Great book for Faith fill and football fans

I about the audio version and finshed it in 1 day. I have a 12 and a 8 year old son's. I will let be letting my 12 year old son listen to most of this book and when he is age appropriate the rest. Tim is my favorite football player of all time. I knew he was different than other players and knew he was a Jesus follower but had no idea about his personal struggles. I appreciated how Tim brought God into his life and did not compromise. Thank you Tim Brown for being a great role model to young men and men. God bless you and your family.
