“It’s not what you face, but how you face what faces you that sets you apart in the original formation of which God made you,” says Vincent D. Noble in his book, ‘The Champions DNA’. The title of the book is The Champion’s DNA: Born Instinctively To Triumph In Any Circumstance. Having served in the military for more than thirty years, Vincent has written this book offering practical steps from his own life.

The book expounds on the fact that every human being has a purpose. This purpose can only be realized if one is willing to undergo the process that awaits. It is an eye-opener to the causes of numerous unrealized dreams and untapped potential. The author proposes that there are some necessary ‘tools’ that will lead to unlocking the winner every person was born to be. The factors that are discussed in depth are purpose, enthusiasm, tenacity, optimism, confidence, inspiration, integrity, discipline, compassion and accountability.

The main argument I picked from the book is that everyone is destined for greatness. The only problem is that people focus on them themselves hence see limitations. The author points us to focus on God who is the creator and who deposited limitless potential in us. The self-destructing habits that are developed in the course of one’s life are to be overcome. Anything that has been learned and is a limitation needs to be unlearned.

The book is professionally edited. It is written in the first person point of view. The language used is simple. There are a few grammatical errors that are not easily noticeable. Another error is where the author quoted a scripture that was wrong. Isaiah 43:2 was quoted instead of Philippians 4:13. The book is organized into sizeable chapters that deal with a specific factor each. This, I believe, is a good format as one can dedicate some time to go through a chapter at a go. I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. I recommend this to everyone who feels like giving up in life. It is indeed a great self-help book and more than this. Though the personal experiences of Vincent are not dwelt on largely, the few that are mentioned have major lessons for the readers. This book would be most suitable for those above ten years.

The thematic issues in the book include the need for integrity and the place of society in shaping lives of individual persons in it. I agree with the author that everyone is uniquely created and may not be able to fit into the expectations of the society. Everyone should accept this but bear in mind that diversity is the plan of God. Indeed, there is no truth other than that, ‘Everyone has a Champion’s DNA’. However, challenges that include societal perception and description that limit one’s potential have to be overcome.

Thank you for the comprehensive review. However, it does seem like I will have to give it a miss, since there seems to be a hint of proselytisation present. Still, it does seem like a great book, and I do agree with the author that one should not force oneself to fit into society's norms and expectations.
