Life Promises For Success Book Review

Book Review of Life Promises For Success by Jim Tressel
"Promises From God On Achieving Your Best"

     This turned out to be a great little bedside, briefcase, purse book.  I had no idea who Jim Tressel was until I set the book in our family reading area.  When my husband saw it I got an ear-full on Tressel and all the little details too.  Tressel, the author, is the Head Football Coach for Ohio State.  Needless to say, he is an accomplished coach and writer.  In his book he shares his keys for success.  The pages are set up as little daily devotionals.  Each time you pick up the book you get a morsel of something inspired and great.  The pocket-book is set up by different topics, like Attitude, Hope, Integrity, Setbacks, etc.  Each issue contains Bible verses, quotes from Tressel or other encouraging people.
     I consider this book to be a gem.  It's very easy to pick up and be uplifted by the words in only a few minutes of the precious time that we have.  I didn't read anything that did not spur me on to be a better person, work harder, and strive for greatness.  I think that men would especially enjoy this book for their office or home.  Each portion has verses that are promises from God for many of the facets of our lives. This pocket-book would be a great gift for a college student, entrepreneur or anyone that would benefit from motivation and insight.
