Good health.

Joy.

Peak performance.

Bob Ryan, a longtime-but-now-retired columnist for the Boston Globe, is more skeptical.

He’s fine with the on-field success. And promoting good nutrition and fitness is fine, as is having spiritual beliefs. But spare him the idea of Brady as a spiritual figure.

“He’s trying to sell us a bill of goods,” Ryan said. “It’s cultlike. The book, to me, is creepy. And it looks like that’s going to be his life after football.”
