Book Review--Coming Back Stronger by Drew Brees

I think everyone has heard of Drew Brees by now and his Cinderella comeback from a near career-ending injury to lead the Katrina-destroyed New Orleans Saints to their first Super Bowl ever.  In his book Coming Back Stronger, Drew tells the story of hitting the NFL bottom due to injury, working his way back to health, and his gut feeling that led him to choose the Saints for his comeback.

They say that New Orleans needed a hero after Katrina and that hero showed up in a Saints uniform.  However, Drew tells the story of a man who desperately needed someone to believe in him--as a player, a leader, and as a man.  It was a win-win situation.

This book is so much more than football.  It’s about struggle, adversity, pain, faith, love, hope, dedication….  I could go on and on.  It’s an amazing story.

As a football fan, I enjoyed reading about the inner workings of football.  As a Christian, I enjoyed reading about how everything in Drew’s life worked out for the good of many.  You do not have to be either to enjoy Drew's story.
