Dungy’s memoir, Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices, and Priorities of a Winning Life, rocketed to the top spot on the New York Times Best Sellers List in August 2007, and more importantly, impacted countless lives. With more than 1,000,000 copies sold, Quiet Strength is one of the best-selling sports-related titles in history.

In addition to the success of Dungy’s Quiet Strength, Tyndale House Publishers recently had another football-related hit on its hands with Don’t Bet Against Me!, the memoir of Deanna Favre, wife of NFL great Brett Favre. Her book spent 10 consecutive weeks on either the New York Times hardcover nonfiction primary list (top 15) or expanded list (top 35). More than 200,000 copies of the book are now in print, and it is now in its eighth printing. Tyndale released The Winners Manual: For the Game of Life by Ohio State University football coach Jim Tressel last July, and the book spent eight consecutive weeks on the Times’s “Advice, How-To, and Miscellaneous” list (either primary or expanded), reaching as high as No. 3. Tyndale also released Atlanta Falcons placekicker Jason Elam’s Monday Night Jihad in 2007, followed by Blown Coverage, his second novel, which released this month.

Tyndale House Publishers was founded in 1962 by Dr. Kenneth N. Taylor as a means of publishing The Living Bible. It is now one of the premier publishing houses in the industry. Tyndale products include numerous New York Times best sellers, including the popular Left Behind series. Tyndale also publishes the Holy Bible, New Living Translation, and many other resources for church and family. Tyndale House Publishers is located in Carol Stream, Illinois, a western suburb of Chicago.

The Author is represented by the literary agency of Legacy, LLC, Winter Park, Florida.
