    1. Through My Eyes is an old-fashioned, inspirational, sports story. It is about the larger than life University of Florida and NFL football player Tim Tebow. Like all celebrities, there are Tebow lovers and Tebow haters. Not too many people have ever seemed neutral about Tim Tebow, especially when he was playing in the NFL. Whether he intended to or not, Tim Tebow became a polarizing figure in the American sports world and gave many late night comedians and Rex Ryan lots of fodder for their comedy [...]


    2. Picking up this book from the library, I noticed that it seemed more slight than its page count would suggest -- it had the big font I had last seen in The Truth About Diamonds. I wondered if it could be a tacit acknowledgment that a 23-year-old might not be the best person to write an autobiography. However, given his defiant preface that "undertaking this project was the right thing to do, regardless of what the world thinks is the 'right time' to write a memoir," I gathered that Tebow really [...]


    3. This book is great. It is clearly written for Gators fans, by a Gators fan. One of the reasons I think the Gator Nation so embraced Tim is because he was as much a fan of the school as we are. He was passionate and we could relate to that, despite the fact that he has talent that most of us could only dream of.There are many facets that make this book work. As a fan, the chapters recounting the football seasons were the most fun. A rush of adrenaline ripped through me just as it had during the g [...]


    4. Well, it’s Sunday, and there’s no football. The Superbowl is over. Desperately clinging to another passion (NFL football) and hoping to excuse it as religious reading, I picked up Tim Tebow’s book. Tim, the latest God-fearing sports sensation.Don’t let me fool you: This is a football book, not a book about religion. More than anything else, you’ll be reading about Tebow’s football experiences, including his remarkable college career. Tebow’s success in football boils down to one th [...]


    5. I thought highly of Tim Tebow before reading his story. Now that I have finished his book I definitely believe that he is using his status as an NFL player to inspire and help others! What a great role model. Keep up the great work, Tim! I will continue to root for you on the sidelines.


    6. Others have complained that this was football-heavy. Well, yeah, okay was. It was like reading a wiki page or something with stats from EVERY. SINGLE. GAME. But this book was not just football-heavy. It was DETAIL-heavy, just generally. One particular instance he tells the reader not only that he went to Cracker Barrel, but the intersection where that Cracker Barrel could be found. Did anything life-shattering happen at that breakfast? Nope, just thought we should know, I guess. There were modif [...]


    7. What a great story of inspiration - of course, I knew to expect that, but it is refreshing to see a star live life as a somewhat grounded person. It really goes to show that faith in *something*, hard work and determination along with a background firmly rooted in a solid family life really *can* define a person's future. Of-course, some may argue that Tim Tebow was just that kind of person all along, but I choose to believe that how a person handles challenges and success directly correlates to [...]


    8. Anyone part of "Gator-nation" or those with ties to the University of Florida will likely rate this book 5 stars before reading it - and wish there were 6 stars following completion of the book. My decision to read this book did not stem from being a Florida fan, or a true follower of Tim Tebow. In fact, when he played for UF I couldn't stand to watch the Gators play football. I chose to read this book because I enjoy autobiographies, especially when they are faith-based and include athletes. I [...]


    9. Iam one who does not like to read non-fiction, or biographies or autobiographies. I just do not find them interesting, but I knew I had to read Tebow's book because he is my role model. Tebow is such a great person to look up to, you never hear him doing anything wrong, he is never seen with a bunch of women, never seen drinking, etc. In a time that athletes and celebrities are constantly partying and making fools of themselves, you have a young man who takes care of himself and leads by example [...]


    10. In Through My Eyes, Tim Tebow goes through his life story. Sounds boring, right? It’s the exact opposite. Even though it may be an autobiography, Tim Tebow describes and explains what has happened throughout his life in and out of football, including the meaning behind the signature “Tebow” pose and the John 3:16 eye blacks. I would, without a doubt, give this book 5 stars. One reason I would rate this book 5 stars is because of the plot of the story. The book starts out at Tebow’s secon [...]


    11. I love Tim Tebow. I hope I have a son like Tim Tebow. He appears to the be the rarest of humans - someone who practices what he preaches. I'm not religious, but I respect the man to the utmost for his impeccable character and his willingness to help those less fortunate. While other players spend their money on jewelry and cars, while carousing with women of questionable repute, Tebow funds hospitals in the Philippines and meets with terminally ill and disabled children after games. He is a natu [...]


    12. This is a difficult book for me to rate. I am not a die hard football fan so of course it had too much football in it! I wanted to read more about Tebow and his personal life. The book dealt with football, religion and then his personal life [which is mostly religion and football!] As far as the book reveals he has never had a date, drank a beer, or had a bad thought. The worst thing he revealed is a game he played on the sidewalks of NYC when he purposely walked in a direction toward couples ho [...]


    13. Tim Tebow is a pretty famous figure in the media right now, and I decided to read his book because he seemed to be such a good role model for kids everywhere, boys and girls alike.Some of the technical football terms went over my head - how many football secret play words are there? 'Oh look! It's another 'Thomas Edison Lightbulb Touchdown Pass!"' I don't know how he remembers all those names, but he does. It's actually extremely impressive when it comes to all the tortuous (yes, tortuous!) trai [...]


    14. Through My Eyes by Tim Tebow has changed my life. I'd like to start off with saying I have watched him since his senior year in high school. He was always an extraordinary athlete and football player. I'll never forget when he made the decision to go to my favorite school, The University of Florida he was right off the bat a big help to our team and won the Florida Gators two National Championships. The reason I read his book was so that I could learn more about him and his background. He is by [...]


    15. Folks, I am not a fan of autobiographies, mostly I like to read what others thought of the person. But my son got Tim Tebow’s book for me for Christmas. Who could refuse their son and not read a gifted book? If your son asked for a fish would you give him a snake? I love that my son was so thoughtful and got me this book. Tim Tebow has lived a very dear and special life, one that makes me think of all the fun and joy I had as a kid, playing football and baseball, playing with my brothers and j [...]


    16. The book Through My Eyes by Tim Tebow is a fairly new Autobiography that he has come out with. I am not quite finished with this book yet but it so far so good. It starts off by giving some background info like about how Tim almost died at birth. It then moves on to his childhood and how he grew up. Tim really stresses his faith in God in this book by not giving the credit of his success to himself. He always talks about how much his family has been blessed.I was able to relate to his childhood [...]


    17. LOVED. This book was so interesting and inspirational. I have loved Tim Tebow and his ability to stand up for what he believes in and continuing to spread God's word through every twist and turn of his football career. To me, he has changed the face of college football and now has the ability to do that in the NFL and this book explains why he has such a passion for Jesus and why he is so verbal and comfortable with talking about it every chance he gets. It is also inspirational on an atheltic l [...]


    18. Tim Tebow is a great guy--a leader, a competitor, a strong Christian. There's no doubt about that. Several of my fellow Christian friends told me I'd love his book. I do love football, after all. But it just wasn't that good. I read it off and on for a few months. It was easy to put down and walk away. Maybe it was because I already knew (for the most part) what the book was going to say because I've followed Tebow's career fairly closely. It wasn't a waste of time but it's not a "must read."


    19. Through My Eyes is an honest insight into Tebow's life. His competitive spirit and love for God shine throughout the telling of his lifestory. I am not a Gators fan, but Tebow impressed me with his presence both on and off the field so I was curious about his "take" on his rise to sports stardom. I was not disappointed! He is the "real deal!" An authentic and honest young man who focuses on making use of his God-given talent while giving the glory to God. He's an excellent role model and I look [...]


    20. I found the book uplifting and encouraging. I enjoyed reading about his upbringing and family life and, as a Christian myself, especially appreciated the references to his faith. To be honest, I even enjoyed reading about the football games. Of course, I am a big Tebow fan so the book had significance for me. In fact, my son and I stood in line for over four hours on Thursday, June 9th in Gainesville, Florida so he could sign my book.


    21. I thought that this book was a very interesting book about Tim Tebow's life. The book made me feel like I was seeing his life through his eyes. Reading this book made me realize how hard it is to make it into a professional sport. Tim Tebow never gave up and worked hard every day to build his muscles. Reading this book made me a better person by helping me realize that life is not always fun and games.


    22. Last December of 2016, I had gotten Tim's book SHAKEN as book mail one day and at a family gathering just a few days before Christmas, I decided or thought that I should get this one as well. I was hesitant at first but for some reason I ended up buying it. Well, a few weeks later, a guy and friend I thought was it (even though he didn't know it but I started to feel something different after praying so much of what to do and wanting to give up but feeling like God was saying not to every time) [...]


    23. When Mrs. Tebow was told by her doctor that having this baby may kill her, there were only two options: to abort, or to have the baby. Through all of the struggles, Mrs. Tebow knew that the God would protect her and her baby through all that was going on. Six months later, she gave birth to what would be one of the greatest quarterbacks in history of college football.Tim Tebow was born in Makati City, Philippines, where his mom and dad, a pastor, were on a mission trip for their church. Tebow wa [...]


    24. Personal Response: This is probably one of the most motivating books I have ever read. I liked how he mentioned all of his favorite things along with his family background. I gained a lot of respect for Tebow after I read this book, and I'd love to read more books by him. Plot: Tim was born in the Philippines, and later moved to the United States when he was three years old. He always had a passion for sports and would play every chance he could with his older siblings. Since he was the youngest [...]


    25. Through My Eyes Through My Eyes A life-story about Tim Tebow may sound boring, but Through My Eyes is anything but that. In Through My Eyes, the football star tells about growing up in Jacksonville, trying find a high school to play football at, and playing football at the University of Florida. Tim's father, siblings and coaches have helped him to become an outstanding athlete. His mother deserves credit for homeschooling him and helping him through tough times. Tebow shares family stories, suc [...]


    26. Personal Response: I thought the book was really good, because I like football and I am starting to like to read autobiographies. I also like this book, because I thought Tim Tebow was pretty good quarterback when he played for the Florida Gators. This book taught me just how hard it is to get into the NFL and how hard it is to get to start on a College Football team.Plot:Through My Eyesby Tim Tebow is about Tim Tebow’s journey to becoming a professional NFL quarterback. Tim was born on August [...]


    27. Personal ResponseThe book, Through My Eyes was an excellent book. It showed how strong you have to be both mentally and physically. I learned a lot about Tim Tebow when I read this book. It took me through his childhood and even told me how he was homeschooled. I was interested in how Tim started playing baseball first instead of football. Then, he switched to football because he wanted to be a quarterback and leader to his team. In the end football was his go to sport. PlotIn this book, Tim Teb [...]


    28. Tim Tebow grew up in a family a lot like my own. I wasn't born in the Philippines and my parents weren't missionaries--BUT, reading his book, I noticed the similarities of life with a really awesome family, and of being grade school age and learning about who Jesus is. And ultimately, wanting to be His too.Tebow writes that he knew from early on he wasn't going to have a normal life. I have felt that I wasn't made for 'normal' either. That God does big things, especially if we are willing. Its k [...]


    29. Who really is Tim Tebow? Is he just another quarterback who got the opportunity to wear blue and orange and live the party life at college or is he more than that? Well Tim Tebow‘s "Through My Eyes" is a great way to find out what kind of person Tim actually is. Going into this book I didn't think I would be a fan of Tim Tebow I thought he would be all about himself but as you will find out while reading his book is that he is very selfless and driven to win. In the book Tim says “You and I [...]


    30. I wasn't sure what to expect when reading this. I didn't know whether it would be more life story, football play-by-play or sermon. What the book is lies somewhere in a perfectly balanced middle.There is no shying away from his faith for Tim Tebow, and for that I truly admire him. As a football fan, I enjoyed watching his passionate style of play on the football field, but I was never a Gator fan so he was often just an afterthought. What he has used his fame to generate, however, is what I resp [...]
