Game Plan for Life: Your Personal Playbook for Success by Joe GibbsA key to winning in any sport is having a great coach, so when I saw this title written by three-time Super Bowl coach and NASCAR championship owner Joe Gibbs, I had to have it.  In Game Plane for Life, Joe Gibbs builds a foundation for living a successful life in areas like spirituality, finances, relationships, and career.

Each chapter begins with Joe Gibb’s life lessons in that area, and then finished by a specialist he trusts to teach the nuts and bolts of the topic.  At first I was a little turned off by it, like having a friend over for dinner only to find out he invited another guest, but in the end the guest writers are brilliant. As with any team, the way to get the most out of your players is to have coaches that focus on one position (quarterback coach, running back coach, linebacker coach, etc.), and so it is in Game Plan for Life.

I’m in my mid-thirties, married with kids, and I wish I had a book like this years ago.  It is very insightful and I will have my boys read it when they are of age.
