Product Description

When a potentially career-ending shoulder injury left quarterback Drew Brees without a team—and facing the daunting task of having to learn to throw a football all over again—coaches around the NFL wondered, Will he ever come back? After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, leaving more than 80 percent of the city underwater, many wondered, Will the city ever come back? And with their stadium transformed into a makeshift refugee camp, forcing the Saints to play their entire 2005 season on the road, people questioned, Will the Saints ever come back? It takes a special person to turn adversity into success and despair into hope—yet that is exactly what Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees has done—and with the weight of an entire city on his shoulders. Coming Back Stronger is the ultimate comeback story, not only of one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks, but also of a city and a team that many had all but given up on. Brees’s inspiring message of hope and encouragement proves that with enough faith, determination, and heart, you can overcome any obstacle life throws your way and not only come back, but come back stronger.

From the Inside Flap

What doesn't kill you makes you STRONGER.
After a potentially career-ending shoulder injury left quarterback Drew Brees without a team--and facing the daunting task of having to learn to throw a football all over again--coaches and commentators across the NFL wondered, "Will he ever come back?
"
When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005, leaving more than 80 percent of the city underwater and almost two-thirds of the population homeless and displaced, people the world over wondered, "Will the city ever come back?"
And with their stadium transformed into a makeshift refugee camp, forcing the Saints to play their entire 2005 season on the road, legions of sports fans wondered, "Will the Saints ever come back?"
Four years later, not only have Drew Brees, the Saints, and the city of New Orleans come back, they have returned stronger and better than ever before.
Set amid the backdrop of one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, "Coming Back Stronger" is the ultimate comeback story, not only of one of the NFL's top quarterbacks, but also of a city and a team that many had all but given up on.
Drew's inspiring message of hope and resilience proves that with enough faith, determination, and heart, you can overcome any obstacle life throws your way and not only bounce back but come back stronger than you ever imagined possible.

As an avid Drew Brees fan I was looking forward to reading this book. Since 2004 when I began watching NFL and recognizing him as an exceptional quarterback then, I was saddened the day he went out with that shoulder injury in 2005. The perseverence he shows in what transpires after that is nothing short of inspiring. He brings humour in every so often by bringing his own humble and somewhat comedic personality into the book, paticularily the events that transpired when he met his future wife while at Purdue. I couldn't be Happier for Drew as he has now cemented himself as the Top tier of elite Quarterbacks. He a gamechanger, a defensive nightmare, but first and foremost, a leader in the highest of all regards. He truly exlempifies what it mean to be a Franchise Quarterback. He tells you how he managed it all in this book.

Don't get me wrong, the book is great and it's a biography so i'm not judging is faith or anything, i just tought it would be less axed on that direction, espaccially the end and birth chapter of his life, anyways...

The book was in perfect condition, shipping was as promised, this store i could recommend to anyone! This book, it depends :P

5.0 out of 5 stars A Champion's Inspiring Book March 19 2015
By Douglas Winslow Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An exceptionally well written memoir, COMING BACK STRONGER kept my attention throughout and made me admire this decent, driven athlete and family man. It has enough football for a fan like me, but not too much for the non-fan, and enough religion for the mildly religious like me, without too much. Hats off to Super Bowl Champ and MVP Drew Brees and his collaborator, Chris Fabry, for this fine contribution to inspirational nonfiction literature.

Drew and his wife, Brittany, agree: the blow that doesn't crush you makes you stronger.

Drew sums up this way: "Finish strong. It is not where you start in life, but rather how you finish. It's that last play that can make all the difference in the outcome."
4.0 out of 5 stars Anyone who has suffered adversity should give this great read a shot April 10 2015

This is a wonderful read and made me have a whole different perspective of Drew Brees in general. It really shed a lot of light on the trade out of San Diego and what goes through a person's head when they are in that kind of life changing situation. Above all, it really shows the amount of adversity most don't ever see (or care to think about). It was expressed in a very easy to read format and really brought a lot of things to the forefront for me in my own life. I was certainly impressed. I got this for a very discounted price and am a huge football fan, but I thought I'd get tired of this book rather quickly and not finish it. Took me less than two days to finish it :)
3.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging Read Oct. 14 2015
By My Two Cents - Published on Amazon.com

First off,

I'm not a fan of the Saints but I had heard enough about Drew Brees and the struggles he faced in his career that when this book was on sale on amazon kindle...I bought it to read

I have to say, I enjoyed the book for the most part. A bit of it was repeated in various chapters and that got old rather quickly. Since I read the book in only a few settings I felt like the reiteration of stories that had been mentioned in previous chapters was just too much. It was almost like a page count had to be obtained because a LOT of these pages could have been edited out.

The story itself of his career is encouraging. I never knew he faced so many personal injuries in the beginning of his career. It was neat to read about this and how he overcame those.

What I liked the most about this book is how he doesn't shy away about talking about his faith in God and his Christianity. In the world we live in it seems that society frowns upon anyone being vocal about their faith. I do wish he had expounded on that aspect a bit more rather than a brieft mention here and there. Granted it is an underlying theme...through out the book... I just would have liked to have read more about that aspect of his and his family's life in depth

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for teens and sports fans July 7 2010
By J. Kennel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Just read this book today and wanted to quickly share a "two thumbs up." This is the inspiring true story of Drew Brees' life, including being injured and having a comeback in professional football. Not to reveal the whole story, it is inspiring and involves a lot of courage and stamina on Brees' part as he faces challenges throughout his life, including a lengthy physical rehabilitation. The book is current and tells of the ups and downs, laughter and tears, victories and defeats of his life. Very interesting read for sports fans, and terrific read for teens whether they follow him or not. I have a couple of teen boys in mind who will love receiving this for a gift. I know teens aren't always keen on reading about adversity, but it's a great reality check and good book for conversations over dinner or a campfire.

If you want to read about a positive example, role model, mentor, or hero for young men today, Drew Brees is a great one!

one quick correction: the audio version is read by Chris Fabry and would be terrific for a car trip/vacation)
5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoy reading biographies/memoirs June 18 2015
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoy reading biographies/memoirs. It usually gives me greater insight into a persons make up. This book caused me to look at Drew Brees in a whole new light. It deals with his on field exploits of course, but it deals more with the off the field details and what kind of person he is. Much time is spent detailing his religious faith and the role GOD plays in Drew's life. I found this book very fascinating. While I respected him before, I admire Drew Brees much more now. Even though I root for a different team, I will find myself pulling for Drew and the Saints when the balls start flying in the fall. I reccommend this book very highly. It is encouraging and uplifting as well as inspirational. The book is written in a style that just seems to flow. At night I would hate to put it down for fear of missing out on something. Two thumbs way up on this one. Read it my friends---you'll be blessed.
