I had my husband look over this book because I really wanted an honest review about how this book meets its target audience. He has really loved it. He’s a third of a way through and plans on continuing with it to the end of the 40 days. My husband does not like reading most things but is finding this book both to be engaging and useful. He says it makes him think about things in a different way.  I think if you are in the market for a spiritual tool on your walk, Living Life in the Zone would make a lovely gift to yourself or the man/men in your life.

Being the wife of a NFL fanatic, I jumped at the chance to review a men's sports devotional, and I give it a Touch Down!  With an easy to read straight forward man to man format, this sports themed devotional speaks to real issues real men face.

This is the book for men. Not just a book, but the book. Though I am not a man by any means, I was able to get through it and enjoy it immensely -- I honestly cannot say I've ever read a book quite like it. It captures forty days of a man's life -- your life -- connecting one to both God and sports. The 40-day game plan is very step-by-step and self-explanatory; it doesn't feel like reading an overwhelming self-help book...it feels like reading your own journal. It is not one of those books where you can read it and voilà, your life is perfect; it's one of those books you read over and over again to tweak and orient your life as you know it until you achieve that satisfying perfection. Keep this one close to your heart because the more you read it, the more improvement you'll see.

Even though this book is appropriate for single, engaged, or married men, women can benefit from some of the lessons. I was a bit apprehensive when I chose this book to read. I am not Christian and I do not follow any faiths, so I was not sure if this book would be one that preached. I was pleasantly surprised that this book was not at all preaching. Though it has scripture, it is written in such a way that all individuals can gain insight from the words. I enjoyed that each day was separated into sections. The sections are brief and to the point. I particular enjoyed the real life stories used to convey the message.

When I chose to review 'Living Life in the Zone' by Kyle Rote Jr. and Dr. Joe Pettigrew, I didn't realize it was a '40-Day Game Plan for MEN.' Yup, that's right, I chose a book to review strictly for men...and I'm a woman. Overall I found the book to be a good devotional.

I loved this book—and I’m a woman!  This book is written by and for men—in particular sports orientated men—but most importantly—married men!  However, women may find it interesting too!   Here’s a line I thought was interesting: 

“Often what you see in your wife as a weakness are really her strengths that have been taken to an extreme.” 

Oh, and this one gave me a chuckle: 

“It’s easy to find fault in your wives…and if the food tastes terrible, doesn’t she expect total honesty out of you? 

Your answer will reveal how long you have been married!”

I was intrigued by this book as a former athlete (yes I said former) and football coach's wife. Even though this is written by men for men, I still was intrigued. This devotional guide strikes a perfect balance between being too heady to process and too fluffy to want to read.

I like that Living Life In The Zone is geared toward men. I found a lot of helpful information that is helping me deal with the men in my life.

I SO much LOVE this book. 40 days of different things I need to do to help my spirituality grow. It gives you a thought for the day & then breaks down the different day...in a game plan format to what you need to do to help you develop a closer relationship with God. And HELLO I am a huge sports fan.....this

Really I think this book might easily be adapted to women if you changed a few was of wording things in the book. I honestly don’t know why I got this book to review since I am not a man, but I do have a husband, so I do have some insight.

For years I have been struggling to find the perfect time, place, etc. for my personal devotional time. I found this guide easy to use and the words of encouragement from the authors, combined with the daily lessons have been catalysts for making my relationship with God a daily priority.Now, back to the question I asked at the beginning:  With this guide can I begin living my life in the Zone after 40 days?  If you go through it as its indeed to be used–Yes.

Even though I am a female, I chose to review this book to see how a “male-oriented” approach would be presented.  I found the thought of the day and the scripture references to be relevant to anyone, male or female.  For the first several days, the book was interesting and did provide food for thought.

Here am I, a female, daring to review a book for the fellas. Not just any book either-a Bible study for small groups of men. I'll admit it, I have no frame of reference. HOWEVER, this IS a Bible study I would benefit from my hubby participating in. I can't say enough good things about this book and I wish every man I know (but especially one)would delve right into it. And Ladies? We could benefit by putting a lot of it into practice as well.
