About the Book

This is an iconic book of quotations and history that takes a reader on an inspirational stroll through the years when Mike Ditka and the Chicago Bears built a winning team. Travel from Ditka’s first press conference as the new head coach, through the struggles, challenges and victories leading to winning Super Bowl XX and beyond. Readers will recall (or newly discover) not only what coach Ditka had to say about life, football and winning, but how the world reacted to Ditka as a compelling leader and member of the Hall of Fame.

With the passage of time, many fans would agree that Ditka’s down-to-earth appeal and laser focus on what it takes to be a winner, is classic inspirational wisdom. Whether you are from the generation that lived many of the moments described in the book, or you are a new arrival to adulthood facing personal challenges of your own, you will appreciate the directness, authenticity and surprising wisdom and good humor of this remarkable man.

We are living through an era when it seems that every game broadcast is predictable while corporate advertising and political correctness seem to dominate the sport of football. Ditka reminds us that the hard work and passionate desire of a team consisting of everymen (or Grabowskis as Ditka put it) can overcome the odds and transform a game associated with the big bucks to one that can elevate the game of life for all of us.

As a major bonus, the book’s cover artwork by Dan Duffy of Art of Words, sets this book apart making it the perfect gift for fans of the Chicago Bears and Mike Ditka.
