Book Review - Tim Tebow: A Promise Kept

About the Book
Young sports fans who read football star Tim Tebow's story will be inspired by the challenges he has overcome on his path to athletic success. Author Mike Klis, sports columnist for the Denver Post, focuses on a pivotal challenge that confronted Tim Tebow in 2008. As Florida Gators quarterback, he galvanized his teammates and Gator fans everywhere with a rousing speech after the team's disappointing loss to Ole Miss.
"I just want to say one thing. To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, I'm sorry. . . . But I promise you one thing . . . . You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play for the rest of the season."

It was a promise Tim Tebow kept, as he went on to lead the Gators to ten successive victories. In language that will appeal especially to young readers, Klis tells Tebow's life story to date, from early school days, as young Tim overcomes his dyslexia . . . his high school football experiences . . . his college glory days with the Florida Gators . . . the Denver Broncos making Tebow their the first round draft choice . . . and in 2012, his dramatic move to the New York Jets! Here's an exciting page-turner for young readers and an inspiring story for sports fans of all ages.

My Take on the Book
This was a quick and easy read that, though unauthorized, was an interesting take on a rising football star. The book gives you some deep insight into Tim Tebow and the motivation behind what he does and who let spirituality guide him on his journey through life. I truly enjoyed the read and found out so much more about Tebow than I had in the past. From reading this book you can see that he is much more than just a football player and it makes me respect him even more. The book was inspirational and any young child would learn much from understanding and following Tebow's examples.
