Athlete + Book = More Boring Sport Cliches
Remember the boring biography of that popular athlete you read before? Here it is again. In the latest incarnation of the superstar athlete biographies, here is the one about Jerry Rice. This book is more propaganda than anything else. After halfway through it, I decided my time was better left for watching paint dry than finish this collection of sports book cliches. I'm glad I had my receipt to return it. This paints him as Mr. Funloving, which is true when the camera is on. You see the real Jerry if you ask him for an autograph with nobody else around. I guess he is still upset that fans did not choose him to win Dancing With the Stars. What a jerk he turned out to be. For a lifelong fan, I'm glad I saw his true colors. No more #80 stuff in my house. For a guy who makes a living on fans, it was remarkable to see a guy who obviously forgot that. It's too bad I'll never get back the time I spent reading the first half of this book. I hope it does not happen to you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
