Game Changer by Kirk Cousins: A Review

When I saw that NFL quarterback Kirk Cousins' book Game Changer was available, I knew I had to read it.  Kirk attended the same high school as Hubby (and most of my in-laws), the same college as my parents (and other family members), and was drafted by the team most of our friends in WV root for.  I also have a son who is just a tiny bit obsessed with football.

In Game Changer, Kirk Cousins gives readers an inside glimpse at his life on the football field and off, and shows how he puts his faith into action.

I really liked this book, even though it wasn't quite what I expected.  I was expecting an autobiography, the story of Kirk Cousins in chronological order, but it's better than that.  Kirk sat down and thought about specific ways in which his faith has influenced his life for the better.  Then he wrote 13 inspirational chapters to encourage others to use and develop their faith, by using the Bible as a playbook, by making good decisions, by surrounding oneself with a great team, and 9 other ways.  Kirk's writing style is conversational, engaging, and easy to understand.
This book would be an excellent book club selection for tweens and teens, especially young football fans--I plan to read this book aloud with my boys.  Mr. Cousins is talented, hard working, and humble and I would be incredibly pleased if my sons wanted to be more like him.
I received this book from the publisher through BookLookBloggers for free in exchange for my honest review.
