All Rise is the authorized biography of Alan Page, a remarkable man who became a pioneer for his race without setting out to be one. He grew up in Canton, Ohio, in the shadow of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, into which he would later be inducted after his stellar NFL career. After leading Notre Dame to a national championship in 1966 and earning All-America honors, he became a first-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 1967.

    Very Poorly done.

    Justice Page's story is amazing, inspirational and very worthy of a book. Too bad it is this one. Very poorly written. Where was the editor?! It is not written as a well thought out story of a great journey but a serial of banal quotes. I appreciate what they tried to do with the book but it was a failure.
