Abstract:

One of the NFL's most talented players, Strahan is also one of its most vocal personalities. His first book is a no-holds-barred account of life in the league, recounting exhilarating victories in vivid detail, but not without the hair-raising details of the ruthless grit required for every win. He reveals the names of the dirtiest players, what it feels and sounds like to crush another player, which potent painkillers players take in order to return to the battlefield, the wild parties, the pressure to live up to a multimillion-dollar salary, the intense and sometimes volatile relationship between player and coach, and the violent blowups that occur when that pressure gets too intense.--From publisher description.
