Reviews about The Playbook for Dads: Parenting Your Kids In the Game of Life (7):
Kazijora
The book Playbook for Dads is a good book about Jim Kelly. I do not think the title was appropriate. It should of read Playbook for Christian/famous Dads. The book would be better for famous dads not your every day dad. The book had too much football information not related about being a dad. The story about his Hunter was touching and I feel makes me a more compassionate person. Good book not great.

Didn't know Jim wrote books. Easy read and entertaining.
Ballagar
If you're a Jim Kelley fan it can be somewhat inspiring when it comes to raising your young Pop Warner player.

Great book for future dads and bills fans.

As a lifelong resident of Buffalo New York, I have watched Jim Kelly mature from a wild young man with a reputation for excess to a Christian gentleman who is a great husband, father and member of the Western New York community. This is an inspirational book that uses the power of faith, experience and circumstance to teach fathers (new and old) some valuable life lessons. The personal notes to his son, Hunter, show a father's love and inspire me to hug my daughter a little tighter. A knowledge of football is helpful in understanding some of the stories but Mr Kelly does a good job of making it accessible to everyone. I'm proud he represents Buffalo to the world.

To begin with, I think the concept of writing on parenting within the game of life is a great idea. The metaphor of a game encapsulates much of what happens in parenting, the ups and downs of life including the struggles. Yet, as I finished this book it was more geared towards a look at the football days of Jim Kelly. No doubt, Jim Kelly was a great quarterback who took the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl three times and was handed three defeats. Yet, it seems like the book is more about the glory days of a great quarterback than a book on parenting.

Even in my criticism, I want to offer some good wisdom about parenting that was gleaned from the book. On the chapter on Respect, Kelly writes, "As a parent, it's much more of a challenge. You have to gain your kids' respect by being consistent...Your children need to know that you're trustworthy and capable of keeping your word. And most of all, by loving and caring for your wife. Kids have an innate sense of these things" (43). Consistency in parenting is so easy to forget when the business of life is crashing down upon you. Yet, consistency provides our children a sense of this is the way a home is run and demands a sense of respect. I really enjoyed that Kelly included the point of relating respect to loving one's wife. I can't tell you how much this means to children, especially in their early years. Why? Loving one's wife shows your children that you go to great sacrifices to love another person, to show her that in concrete ways and in turn reflects upon your love for your children.

The prayer sections to his late Son Hunter and to his two daughters were very touching. On page 72, Kelly writes, "Prayer also prepares me to face the many uncertainties of life. I think Hunter taught all of us how to pray. We always had to be prepared because we never knew what each day would hold for our little soldier." The tragedy and heartbreak of losing a son so early in life is a pain that is unbearable, yet the legacy of his strength shines through in Kelly's words about Hunter.

Much thanks to Faith Words for the review copy of this book.

I really liked this book. I grew up a Bills fan so I really appreciate hearing Jim's take on life and parenting. It's a pretty personal book compared to other ones of this type. That probably comes from the life experiences the Kelly's have gone through. My other favorite of these 'dad and sports' books is the one called Parent's Playbook or Coach's Playbook or something like that...it's the one that has Steve Young doing the forward. That one is a better book for just picking up and reading one of the short chapters and putting back down. It's not so deep that you reevaluate your life when you read it...just some nice thoughts to keep you grounded as a parent. Sometimes I just look at the cool pictures and read the quotes from the famous coaches. Like someone else here said, the sports/coaching metaphor really works when you get overwhelmed with parenting young kids. Either one of these books would be great for xmas present but the Playbook one with Steve Young's forward is probably more general in its audience (it doesn't mix in prayer for instance).
