Summary

Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow has established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time, he amassed an unparalleled resume - winning two BCS national championships; becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy; and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

Now, in Through My Eyes, Tebow brings listeners everywhere an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it, revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tebow has a unique story to tell - from the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took place in between.

At every step, Tebow's life has defied convention and expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-documented, the stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all really happened.

Inspiring and encouraging

Loved all the details and the authenticity and was very easy to follow. Very clearly set out and well structured. I very much enjoyed listening to this book, and each time I listened I felt encouraged and strengthened by the scripture verses and the story. Five stars!

The ultimate role model for your son

Bought the audio book to share with my 14 year old son. Turns out we both loved it and are amazed what a guy can accomplish with the right mind set and vales. HIGHLY reccomend this book.

I love football but.....

I love football and Tim Tebow has been a compelling player to watch since entering the NFL. Many times in the last 2 seasons I have found myself rooting for him (even though I'm a diehard Colts fan) but it was not hard not to root for such an unconventional player achieving success against long odds. However, In My Eyes is nothing short of nauseating in it's self serving immodest style. Tim Tebow is a world class braggart and his book is the antithesis of a compelling sports biography like Open: An Autobiography, where Andre Agassi is human and shares his successes, failures, doubts and flaws. This is not a story about a person who just happens to be a world class athlete, it's a preening Tebow looking at himself in the mirror and liking what he sees. Putting aside his right wing Christian take on everything, Tim Tebow is an extremely shallow person that I'll never root for again.

Tebow fan

Being a Florida Gator and Jacksonville native, it was with anticipation that I read Tim Tebow's story. Our youngest is the same age as Tim and competed against him when he played at Trinity. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story and as Christians, appreciated that he kept true to his faith in telling his story. Our disappointment was in the performance. The individual reading the story mispronounced many of the Florida city names which was disappointing. If you're going to read a book, be sure to know the names in the story.

Thank you for including this in Audible.

Informative and encouraging!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this book to get a look into the life of a very interesting young man.

What did you like best about this story?

Although there were times when all the detail behind each play/game seemed boring, it provided a foundation for the story. I enjoyed learning about his family and the role they played in his life and how a 'homeschooled' young man has grown to be a light in the ever darkening wold of pro sports.

Any additional comments?

I read this book for one reason. To learn more about the young quarterback who seems to be in the news weekly and sometimes daily. I am not a sports 'nut' but I enjoy reading about a success story of a young man who is making a positive difference in the sporting (entertainment) industry. Too often stars in the sport world are horrible role models filled with self pride and are very arrogant. This young man is setting a good example and is destined to be a great role model for young aspiring athletes.

Lots of play by play

I enjoyed listening to this book. Tim is obviously a special guy and he has a great story, however this book had way too much "play by play" descriptions of foorball games. I was interested in Tim's story because of his religious convictions and wanted to hear his entire story. As I said, I enjoyed the listen but had hoped for more personal stuff and less "I moved to the right and hit the wide receiver at the 20".

Better than expected

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. In a day when few men want to make any sacrifices to be a role model, it is truly inspiring to hear the thoughts of a man who values his relationship with Christ over the temptations of the world. Although not a perfect man, Tebows character is one that I am sure will inspire many.

Any additional comments?

The narration was a bit slow at the start but later I got really into it and didn;t want to turn it off.

Great story, but issues with the telling

Tim Tebow has one of the greatest stories of any pro athlete. That story carries both the book and its narration, and makes this book well worth hearing/reading. However, the book needed a good deal more editing; much of it seems like someone recorded Tim telling his story, and just transcribed what he said. In addition, the narrator was a poor choice. While his cadence was similar to Tim's, he was obviously unfamiliar with many key football and theological terms, and butchered the pronunciations.

Great overall book.

Before I didn’t know much about Tim Tebow only from what I heard on TV. Going into this book with an open mind I came out very happy I listened to it. I have listened to it a couple times and find inspiration and motivation to work harder in my own life.
