Mike Singletary- One On One

Having read several of Jay Carty's books now I have to say he is an incredibly inspiring writer and person to say the least. I am so excited each month as I check for new "stuff" from Jay Carty as it is always refreshing and different yet always connected to God with a three stranded cord. If you haven't been a reader of his books for long there are many to choose from and this writer never stops searching for Gods will in his daily efforts to continue to provide hearty reading material for all groups and all stages from salvation, and growth to a mature level of one's spiritual walk. I highly recommend anything he puts his hands on because I know the hand of God is on him. Some of what I have read and or listened to on tape are:"Discovering your natural talents", "Counter Attack: taking back ground lost to sin", "Playing with fire", "Something's fishy Getting rid of the carp in your life","Coach Wooden One on One", "Coach Wooden's Piramid of success", Darrell Waltrip - One on One, "Mike Singletary- One on One" all keeping me captivated from cover to cover!

A Dance with Faith and Football

Whoever Jay Carty is - He's on to something special. This book is the second one I read. First John Wooden, now Mike Singletary. I loved UCLA basketball and I loved the '85 Bears. This book gives you tastes of both again, along with some nice balance to other things in life. Great read!

Highly recommended

As a life long Packer fan I must admit there were times when I didn't appreciate Mike Singletary's prowess on the gridiron. However, I have a new respect and admiration of him today. Having read other Jay Carty books, I knew I had to read this one and I was not disappointed. This is the sort of inspirational book that one can cycle through over and over and never cease to be inspired.

Destined to become a classic!

Author Jay Carty and linebacker Mike Singletary relate valuable lessons of life. A great read, especially in a section-a-day way, former L.A. Laker Carty and former Chicago Bear Singletary take turns relating stories, anecdotes and general tips on life to those who wish to learn from the best. Mike Singletary has been an inspiration to all as a man dedicated to working hard and never giving up, no matter the circumstances. Highly recommended!!

This book is for everyone!

OK - I'm female and I like football. But that doesn't mean I completely understand it. So why would I (you) want to read a book written about football by a football player? The question was answered within the first couple pages of "Mike Singletary One-On-One". It's not just about football...it's about life. Oh, sure there's enough football stories...the hits, the plays to keep the average football fan happy. (Why you can practically smell the turf when reading this book.) But you combine Mike Singletary - one of the greats of football - with Jay Carty's humor and insights and you have winning combination. Here's an example: In the chapter entitled "High and Lonely", Mike talks about having a work ethic that put him at a different level than many of his teammates were willing to go. And that can make you lonely. "It would have been nice if I had been one of the guys, but that was not my way. I didn't know how to play any other way. Maybe if I'd had more talent I could have relaxed a bit, but I didn't. I was the guy who came from the ghetto, who was too small and who was dedicated to my family...yes, sometimes it was lonely at the top." It is this kind of honest reflection with Jay's commentary and spiritual perspective that makes a professional football player "human"... even downright relatable. This is a great book to give to a football fan...it's even a better book to give to someone who has to deal with the "hits" and the "daily playbook of Life." (I know that I will also be watching Sunday football with just a little more insight into the game.)
