Rated 5 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This is a MUST BUY BOOK! Jon Gordon has delivered yet another very COMPELLING book in "Training Camp"!If you just read the words of this book, it is about a guy trying to make it in the NFL - for me the sports analogy itself is engaging. However, open your mind and your heart to really HEAR what this book is SAYING. This book resonated with me and my life in a way I can't hardly put into words but I must say that Jon Gordon has had that impact on me since I first saw him speak LIVE in January 2009. I have read all of his books and each one speaks to me in its own way but "Training Camp" is the book that has the impact to make you realize that it is all about BEING YOUR BEST IN EVERY DAY LIFE. I bought this book for my entire work team as well as several of my family and friends - I have shared so much of what Jon Gordon has taught me with his words in 2009 with work colleagues, my family, my friends as well as people I meet in every day life. Anyone will enjoy the message that Jon delivers in this book if you OPEN your HEART and MIND to hearing how being the BEST is truly what MATTERS MOST.Take a look at Jon Gordon's website for many motivational "tools" which he offers; also see when Jon is speaking in a town near you...trust me, he is worth the time & money!! I've been in sales my whole life and seen a ton of different motivational type speakers but Jon is HANDS DOWN the BEST MOTIVATIONAL type speaker I've ever heard. God definitely put Jon Gordon on this earth to share his messages with the world - so THANK YOU JON for continuing to give your gift to all of us!! www.jongordon.com 12/31/2009
