Summary

NFL All-Pro, sports analyst, and businessman Tim Brown teaches men and boys principles and priorities for life. Every young boy dreams about growing up to be his vision of a man, but what does that look like? What is manhood, really, and how do guys get there?

For some boys their dreams are to be an astronaut, a fireman, or a professional athlete. When legendary coach Lou Holtz told Tim Brown he might be the best football player he'd ever seen it started Tim on a fast track to the Heisman Trophy and playing sixteen seasons for the Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders. While Tim quickly achieved athletic success, he had to work harder off the field to live a life of honor and integrity—two essential cornerstones of manhood. Much more than a sports biography, The Making of a Man reveals Tim's struggles with life and God, his ultimate triumph, and the foundation of faith and family that even today helps him to be one of the most respected men in the world of sports. He shares the importance of a life well-lived and a lasting legacy with stories and lessons on: Practicing thankfulness; Offering forgiveness; Living with humility; Taking responsibility; Facing temptation. These strong principles, woven into the fabric of Tim's remarkable career, not only provide a compelling narrative but challenge all men to measure their life by a higher standard.
