The inspirational real-life story of the man behind the beloved movie Rudy, and his continued determination to make his dreams come true, and showing you how to dream big too.
How does a lower middle-class kid, who suffered through school with undiagnosed dyslexia, get into Notre Dame and become the inspiration for millions in a Hollywood film that has become one of the most influential sports movies ever made? He never gave up.
For the first time, read Daniel Rudy Ruettiger’s real life story and learn the behind-the-scenes details of the ten years it took to make the movie and how that tossed him into a new career of public speaking that continues today.
Divided into four sections that describe his growing up in Joliet, Illinois, becoming the first player in Notre Dame history to be carried off the football field, struggling to get a movie made about his life, and losing sight of his own dreams, nearly derailing him. Rudy details the failures and hard lessons he’s learned and shows how hitting the reset button was the best thing that happened to him.
Rudy doesn’t just represent some far-fetched Hollywood story that most people can never attain – its message is that he’s an “Average Joe” and that anyone with a dream can make that dream a reality by being willing to put in the hard work, and heart, it takes to get there.
