"Training Camp by Jon Gordon is a touching story about one man who faces his fears on his path to greatness. Along the way, he learns a valuable lesson about who is really in control. Grow your faith. Read Training Camp."
Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Lead Like Jesus

"I loved reading this book. Jon and I agree that one should not only strive for excellence on the field but also make greatness a life mission. I believe every coach, player, individual, organization, and team that wants to be their best should read and benefit from this book."
Mike Smith, Head Coach, the Atlanta Falcons

"Having spent my life studying the best, I have found that great individuals need great coaches. Training Camp is not only about the student but the mentor. Jon has woven a compelling story of two individuals together, traveling life′s journey, striving for excellence, and leaving a legacy in the process. I found myself cheering the main characters on from the sidelines. Thank you, Jon, for leaving a legacy with the profound lessons found in this book."
Kimberly K. Rath, President, Talent Plus

"Training Camp is a great read for any leader, young or old whether a coach, teacher, pastor, or CEO. It will inspire you to inspire others and to strive for excellence every day."
Brad Lomenick, Vice President and Executive Director, Catalyst, a movement of next–generation leaders

"Jon Gordon has written a poignant and powerful story that helps us find the best within ourselves and bring out the best in others. He will change lives with this book."
