Lessons I’ve Learned About Life and Football from My NFL Coaching Career
Coach Slow is inspirational! I love this book! “Sixty Minutes to a Lifetime” by the NFL coach, Bob Slowik, is a really fun read. I wasn’t sure if I would like this book — to me X and O means hugs and kisses — but Coach Slow has written a book that makes it all so interesting. He has the right attitude — and this book is about so much more than football. He knows the meaning of finding joy in life. Patzi Gil, host of Joy on Paper
Highly recommended. I bought this book for my husband, but ended up reading it before he did. It is a great book to read when you only have a few minutes at a time to relax with a book. Coach Slow’s insights into not only the game of football but how it relates to tasks we all do everyday is worth much more than the time it takes to read. This is a must read for those wanting to be the best they can be, regardless of whether you like football or not. Peggy Reyn
I met Coach Slow at a business meeting a few years back. He actually held those in attendance spellbound as he shared stories of how he worked his way through the ranks as a college coach and in the NFL by the love and support of his wife and the exceptional work ethic he received from his parents. To meet him or to read his book is a lesson in how to make anything possible…if you believe enough and are passionate enough. I have since bought his book for several friends and family who dove right into reading it and had nothing but things like “I loved this book!” to say about it. Frances Napali
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A twenty-year career in the NFL, a member of a Super Bowl Championship team, and nine years as a defensive coordinator provided a unique perspective on leadership. A defensive coordinator reports to a head coach. The position therefore offers the vantage point of both a leader and a team member. This awareness lends the ability to impart lessons on how to lead with the understanding of what it’s like to be led – all under the bright lights of the big leagues. Over the course of his thirty-five-year football career, Bob spent time in the company of people at their best and at their worst. He saw how they responded to success and how they extended their humanity; on- and off-camera. His was that rarefied experience of life in the NFL. Bob and his wife Carol are the proud parents of four children: Ryan, Andrea, Bobby, and Steven.
