About this title


The Winners Manual: For the Game of Life shares Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel's ?Big Ten? fundamentals for success: Attitude, Discipline, Faith, Handling Adversity & Success, Excellence, Love, Toughness, Responsibility, Team, and Hope. Peppered with personal stories from Coach Tressel?s storied coaching career, this book shares the fundamental lessons that he has been imparting to his players and coaching staffs for the past 20 years. A perfect blend of football stories, spiritual insights, motivational reading, and practical application, The Winners Manual provides an inside look at the core philosophy that has positively impacted the lives of thousands of student athletes and served as the foundation for two of the most successful college football programs of all time. Includes 8 pages of color photos and a foreword from NYT best-selling author John Maxwell. All of the proceeds from the book are being donated directly to the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library Renovation Campaign.
Other features:

  • Each chapter closes with a practical application section, where readers will be ?coached? on how they can apply the lessons imparted throughout the book to their own lives, via the establishment of measurable goals.
  • Provides a rare inside glimpse into the mind of one of the most respected coaches in college football history and into the huddle of one of the most successful football programs of all time.
  • Filled with hundreds of inspirational stories, quotes and anecdotes.

From the Back Cover:

What does it reallymean to be a winner? Are there certain qualities that winners inherently possess that make them natural difference makers? How can you measure such a thing? The book you're holding is my attempt not only to answer these questions but also to distill the heart of a nearly four-hundred-page handbook I have been handing out to my players on the first day of spring practice for more than twenty years. We call it The Winners Manual-a personal playbook for success, filled with insights on what it takes to be a winner in the game of life from some of the greatest coaches, athletes, writers, thinkers, and leaders in the world. We developed it to help our athletes become the best players and people they can possibly be. The principles in this book have been passed down to me from my father; from coaches I have had the privilege of knowing, working with, and competing against; and from hundreds of former players, who have taught me a great deal about success, adversity, winning and losing, hope, love-basically, the stuff of life. I think you'll find the information in this book is not so much about football as it is about life and what it really takes to succeed-physically, emotionally, spiritually, and professionally. These principles have been absolutely invaluable to me over the years, and I hope they will be for you as well. A portion of the proceeds from this book will go to the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library campaign at The Ohio State University.
