Books That Inspire 2007

Scoring in the Red Zone
Spencer Tillman

In the summer of 2005, I had the fortunate opportunity to pick up Spencer Tillman from the Oklahoma City airport and deliver him to Norman for a speaking engagement. I knew of his football accomplishments, but it wasn't until that day, and those 20 minutes in the car, that I came to respect his personal passion and enthusiasm for life. His optimistic perspective was contagious. So contagious, that I spent one night, several weeks later, reading his newly released book cover to cover. Scoring in the Red Zone explores the success and maintenance of leadership during times of stress and anxiety. Through faith, commitment, integrity (and a few football analogies), Spencer shares his personal insight on leadership and life that serves as motivation to anyone who aspires to lead.
