From Publishers Weekly

Gruden traces his transformation from pigskin letdown as a player to gridiron triumph as a Super Bowl-winning coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He avoids charges of nepotism (his father was a successful coach and trainer in his own right) simply by chronicling his own determination. He devotes a good deal of space to the importance of assembling highlight reels for the team to study-and captures all the wacky vocabulary of offensive and defensive plays, "Waggle Right Double Out Waggle Right Drag Hook" being just one of many. Gruden gleans wisdom from the colorful likes of Bobby Knight, Bill Walsh and other legendary coaches with whom he has worked. Players, too, are sketched vividly and personally-from Steve Young and Joe Montana to Randall Cunningham and Ricky Watters. It's not often that one reads about what it's like for a gifted QB like Young to have to just cheer on while another gifted QB like Montana leads a team to glory. But it's Gruden's own portrait that emerges most sharply: he's the scrappy private who almost imperceptibly becomes field commander. An insomniac who has the face of "Chucky," he's also funny and self-deprecating, telling such stories as George Seifert balling him out for sharpening the famed 49ers coach's playwriting pencils. The point of it all is that football isn't about winning, but about learning how to win. B&w photos.

From Booklist

Just another book by a football coach about winning and hard work? Hardly. Gruden's story is different for two reasons: First, at 39, he was the youngest head coach to ever win a Super Bowl. Second, prior to that triumphant year, he was traded--yes, traded--from Oakland to Tampa Bay in an unprecedented move worth four draft picks and millions of dollars. So there he was, in front of the Buccaneers, who barely had a chance to say good-bye to their beloved ex-coach Tony Dungy. Talk about expectations! Gruden met the challenge by winning the 2003 Super Bowl (Tampa Bay's opponent? Oakland, of course). Gruden, aka Chucky for his scowl, which brings to mind the horror-movie doll, takes us with him on a romp through his past, starting with how his dad, also a coach, instilled in him the love of football and extending through his playing days and rapid rise as a coach. Gruden has lived life like he coaches: there's no sense being there if you don't give it your all. Mary Frances Wilkens

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein Buch für jeden Football-Fan!!! 26. Juni 2004
Von F. Wild
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dieses Buch von Jon Gruden, Head Coach der Tampa Bay Buccaneers, ist zwar vor allem für Fans der Bucs interessant, da es u.a. „Chuckys" Gedanken und Gefühle auf dem Weg zum Super Bowl-Gewinn darlegt. Das heißt aber keineswegs, das nicht auch andere Football-Fans an dem Buch Gefallen finden würden. Dafür spricht insbesondere die detailgetreue Darstellung seiner Laufbahn vom erfolglosen College-Backup-Quarterback, über Jobs als Football-Filmcutter bei der University of Tennessee, Helfer von Mike Holmgren bei den San Francisco 49ers, Offensive Coordinator bei den Philadelphia Eagles, u.v.m., bis hin zum Gewinn des Super Bowls XXXVII als Head Coach der Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hieran kann man erkennen, wie viel Arbeit und Schweiß erforderlich sind, um eines Tages den Super Bowl zu erringen. Es wird aber auch geklärt, wie Jon Gruden zu seinem Spitznamen „Chucky" kam oder warum sich so viele Katzen rund um das alte Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia aufgehalten haben.
Abschließend lässt sich also sagen, dass es durchaus eine Bereicherung im Buchregal eines jeden Football-Fans ist.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Great coach - dissapointing book 29. September 2003
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I loved Gruden when he was with the Raiders - a great coach, a terrific leader, and massively fun to watch. His book, however, is rather dissapointing. Not because he's a bad guy - quite the opposite. He is so reserved in his criticism that the whole book comes off like some sort of "Wonderful Life." For example, when talking about Ricky Watters (a player who was obviously a major pain in the a**), he says merely "For whatever reason, Ricky Watters never really seemed to warm up to me." And his dodging around Al Davis is even worse - his summary of why he left the Raiders is simply "My agent, Bob LaMonte, told me that negotiations for a contract extension were going nowhere." That's it???
Great guy, great coach, but a dissapointing read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen gruden is good 1. Dezember 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is an enjoyable read especially if you like football. The one thing that was a bit annoying was his constant use of football play names. It was a bit much. This book isn't like other book's I've read by coaches, it is more like a overview of his life. More of a biography than motivation book which is what I was looking for. If you want to learn more about Gruden in a fast read then buy the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen RELAX PEOPLE 28. September 2005
Von Robert P. Eidson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am not a huge Gruden fan ever since he left my Philadelphia Eagles, but I read this book and have to say that it is written like he thinks, 100 mph. I do not mind that he glossed over some things because he was trying to wrap up his entire life to date in under 200 pages. I think it did a great job showing how an NFL coach moves through the ranks, the importance of experience at the different coaching positions, as well as the time line of interest in the Post Bill Walsh era where everyone seems connected in the football family. I enjoyed his book and I went from making fun of the guy before hand, to respecting his success at such an early age. As for winning with Dungy's guys - yes, he did do that, but now that he has a running game in 2005, his team looks right back on top. Something people should realize about the NFL that is important. Coaches, for the most part, have all walked the same line and know all the same Xs and Os. In the end their success finges on their ability to work long hours and prepare, have good salary cap management by their GMs and have the players to win games. Gruden is a beast of a hard worker and knows his stuff, you may want to take some notes about his work ethic if you get anything out of this book. I have read just about every football book there is, no joke, so I know what I am talking about. If you want a pulitzer prize writer - try When Pride Still mattered, if you want a quick fun read that inspires a work ethic, this is a good book for you.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Gruden gets it done with intensity and passion! 25. Juni 2012
Von Geo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Jon Gruden climbed the ladder to the pinnacle of football success and he accomplished a lot in a short time. His bio, "Do You Love Football?!" offers a glimpse into his journey from an average DII college quarterback to guiding Tampa Bay to a Super Bowl victory. All this before the age of 40! Pretty good read about a man who definitely loves his pigskins . . .

Great guy, wonderful true story, told very well. It was very pleasant to read something that contained so much enthusiasm and that was so positive and upbeat.
A must read full of insights and facts of the game.
