It was interesting
Best sports book out
By Microsoft man
I am in no way a book reader but I am a avid sports follower. Huge Ravens fan and aspiring NFL football player. So when I heard ray made a book I had to read it. This book changed my life and outlook. Would recommend to anyone just mature audiences. It does have some vulgar parts but overall great book.
Spiritual, Instirational and a heck of a story.
By DD GOTT
Ray Lewis, legendary Baltimore Ravens linebacker and one of the greatest defensive players of his generation, holds nothing back on the state of football as well as his troubled childhood, his rise to athletic greatness, the storm that threatened to ruin his NFL career, and the devastating injury that nearly cost him a final moment of glory.
A lot of folks, they know my game, but they don’t know my deal. This book right here, it tells the story of my seventeen-year NFL career. It tells of my two Super Bowls, the mark I was blessed to be able to make on the game, on the city of Baltimore. But it also tells the story of how I grew up—abandoned by my no-account father, raised with my siblings by our God-fearing, hardworking single mother. It tells how I sometimes struggled off the field. It tells of the anguish and controversy that found me away from the game. Mostly, it tells how heartbreak can sometimes lift you to greatness and glory—if you find a way to put your focus in faith, and faith in your focus.
When I left the game, confetti raining down on me and my teammates after winning the Super Bowl, I made a promise to myself to show how the game is really played at the highest level. That’s what you’ll find in these pages—a raw, honest look at the business of football and a look behind the scenes at some of the most torturous aspects of the game. The grind of the NFL—that’s what shines through.
My deal? That grind is a given. Every player who wears an NFL uniform has to slog through the same battles just to get to the league. But it’s how you prepare for those battles that defines you—and here I hope to show how an unwavering trust in God and an unbreakable sense of purpose can lift you from tragedy to triumph. From strength to strength, man—that’s the deal.
I received this as a gift from my grandson. This is his favorite NFL player and he told me that I would really enjoy it which I did!
What did I like? I’m not sure where to start???? This was a really great inspirational book that you could tell was written from the heart. I personally do not know that much about football and just by reading this and talking it over with my grandson I did learn a lot more than I had ever thought that I would like to know. Just the work that a player has to do to stay in shape wore me out. Ray Lewis took that to the next step. If ever a parent wanted to show their children how easy they have it or what it takes to succeed this is the book to give them. I was very shocked in learning what this man had to go through and what it took him to make it to the last day of his NFL career, it amazed me.
What will you like? This book really spells out the life of Ray and the hard work that he put into his career. It is well written and very easy to read and will certainly capture your attention right from the beginning. I know that for me after I got into it and you have to realize, I am not a sports fan… not against it just not personally a favorite, it will be really hard to put down. The amazing thing is that even though he had a really tough life, he took it in stride and put all the bad things that happen to him from being beaten as a child to being accused wrongfully of murder; coming out on the other end as a man that took those horrific things and putting them to good use. Showing others another way to live and being a father to his children, son to be proud of to his mother, extended and otherwise family, a man that anyone would be proud to call a friend plus taking a city he loved and making it his own home. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to read about a very unusual man and the great way he looks at life.
I read the sample which was 45 pages
By Tiffany Necole
After reading only the 45 pages im going to go buy it because it's so inspiring. An I've learned alot that I didn't know about him before.
Inspiring and amazing
If you want to know what a leader, a hard worker, and motivational man lives like than the book is perfect. Teaches the life lessons we all need to be reminded. Truly Awesome!
Ray Lewis delivers one of the most candid and inspiring autobiographical stories that I have read thus far. You would do yourself a disservice by not purchasing this book and gleaning the numerous life lessons provided by his story. I am a high school football coach in Florida after a retiring from military service and I for one am better prepared to mold my players.
