    Tyler Trent was an incredible young man. I've learned more from him reading this book about a real relationship with Jesus through suffering than I ever expected. His legacy will be long remembered. He is a true Indiana hero. Tyler Trent was an incredible young man.

    Being a Purdue University graduate I am extremely biased in the review of this book. I won't lie that at times it was tough read and other parts were truly inspiring. I am not the most religious guy around but the way Trent talked about how he accepted God's plan was amazing I do believe we were all put on earth to do something and sooner or later you will find it. His was to galvanize the college football and college sports fanatics around the world to try and help find a cure for cancer.

It could be God, it could be your spouse, a best friend a parent. Just talk. Enjoy your time with your family. This probably wasn't the smartest time for me to read this book since this month is the 11 year anniversary of when I lost my sister to cancer. I still believe that she and our Mom are looking down on our family trying to help us stay positive. Find your anchor and use it. Make a difference in the world. Small words can make a big difference. Finally let bygones be bygones and make up with someone you miss. Nothing is worse than not having someone still in your life because of a stupid argument. Take care and good luck.

    Wow, what a book! I felt that when that innocent 14 year old boy was told he had cancer. When he wanted to give up on life because “what’s the point?” When he conquered his fears and determined to honour God and trust Him with his second cancer diagnosis. How can someone with such a awful illness be able to view it in the positive light of being able to help others in the same situation? Tyler amazed me in more than one way of his bravery and determination to make the most of osteosarcoma, but he Wow, what a book! I felt that when that innocent 14 year old boy was told he had cancer.

Tyler amazed me in more than one way of his bravery and determination to make the most of osteosarcoma, but he also amazed me in his writing ability. If he was still alive now and hadn’t gone through osteosarcoma,he would be making his mark on the world because that’s who Tyler was. He was an amazing person who touched every person in his life. His testimony inspired me and made me want to do everything I can in this world while I can. #TylerStrong 💛

    What a story, one that was admittedly tough to get through. I, like most of America, discovered Tyler part way through his battle and was rooting for him and felt inspired by him the moment I learned of him. His drive and spirit made me proud to be a Boilermaker. It was devastating to learn of his passing on New Year's Day and when this book came out I knew I had to read it right away to learn more of his story.

Reading his firsthand words (and those of his parents too) just connected him to me further. To learn what all he had been through, and what he continued to go through, low blow after low blow...and to hear his voice and read his words about how he just managed to keep going...it's going to be a long time before I feel as inspired by someone as much as Tyler did. Both during his journey and continuing now that he is gone. God bless Tyler Trent. What a powerful young man he was.

    A moving, raw story from multiple perspectives: Tyler explains that it’s not a hitch in your faith—but rather, a part of it—to question God and have uncertainties. Tony, Kelly, and Blake bravely recount their real, candid reactions and thoughts throughout Tyler’s journey. Plus, you get plenty of celebrity cameos and a pleasant taste of Tyler’s sharp wit throughout his writing. (Make sure to buy the book at TylerTrentBook.com for a portion of the proceeds to go to cancer research!)

    Reads like a giant faith essay written by a high schooler from the Midwest, which, of course, it is. Beyond the cliche phrases, which I feel like I've heard a million times (probably because I went to high school in the midwest), this is a powerful personal testimony that will resonate with anyone, but especially with those passionate about sports.

    Wow. Like many others, I heard about Tyler Trent "the super fan" with amazing faith, positivity, and cancer and cried when he lost his battle with the ugly disease. I was so excited to read his story in this book, but this book was so much more. I won't lie, it was hard to get through and I had to set it down a few...or more...times to have a good cry, but I'll probably read it again and again because it is so moving and inspirational. If you've ever had a loss of faith or any moments of doubt, Wow.

That being said, Boiler UP. Hammer down. Tyler strong.

    It is pretty hard for me to review this book objectively. Tyler Trent, the Trent family, and their story is inspirational. And this book gives a good insight into their lives and the effects of pediatric cancer. There were a lot of really impactful moments. However, I couldn't help feeling that a lot of the book was just bloated. I get it, given the circumstances. They weren't going to have a full books worth of Tyler's thoughts.

And this book gives a good insight into their lives and the effects of pediatric cancer. There were a lot of really impactful moments. However, I couldn't help feeling that a lot of the book was just bloated. I get it, given the circumstances. They weren't going to have a full books worth of Tyler's thoughts. Some of the added perspectives were very good, and they helped paint a picture of a young man who meant a whole lot to a whole lot of people. Unfortunately, some of it seemed a little less critical. At the end of the day, I'm glad I read it. Regardless of how I feel about the book itself, the overall story is inspiring. However, I feel the book falls short in some places and that is why I only am giving it 3 stars.

    You may have heard of Tyler Trent, the Purdue student some called “the superfan.” While gravely ill last fall, Tyler predicted on national television that unranked Purdue football team would beat the heavily favored, top 5 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. Which they did. The ESPN story about Tyler that aired that day exploded his platform over the months that followed. Having defeated osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, once before, Tyler lost the rematch on January 1, 2019.

Which they did. The ESPN story about Tyler that aired that day exploded his platform over the months that followed. Having defeated osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, once before, Tyler lost the rematch on January 1, 2019. The Upset was written, with the help of John Driver (including chapters from family members) during this whirlwind of fame, awards, and the severe downward spiral of Tyler’s health. That alone makes this an inspirational story. But there is far more to Tyler’s story that an illness and a crazy love of Purdue athletics. Read more...

    Though I never had the privilege of meeting Tyler in person, I have prayed for him and his family through his journey. Tyler went to our church and he and his family embody living for Christ and doing everything for his glory. This book is more than Tyler’s story. It is a window in how to live a faith filled life, no matter what storms come.

    Purdue "superfan" but so much more. Inspirational story of a young man who faced his battle against cancer head-on and didn't allow it to stop him from living his life to the fullest. He used his platform to spread his faith and the hope of eternity with those he encountered. Well done, good and faithful Tyler. Purdue "superfan" but so much more.

    Thank you Trent family for sharing Tyler’s story with us. What an amazing young man who honored the Lord until the end. Hearing the added perspectives added much to the narrative. What a great, encouraging, and challenging read.

    “Whether I live or die, either way I win!” Wow! Makes me think how I shouldn’t get down on my faith for the comparatively trivial trials that I face.

    Just finished this amazing book! While I am a huge Purdue fan I am also a Christian. I was brought to tears by Tyler’s awesomeness. His Christian faith and ability to share it so easily really hit me. We should all be like Tyler. #boilerup!
