Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-- Although his athletic career is at least temporarily on hold, Bo Jackson's popularity remains high; hence, Devaney has updated his 1988 title of the same name (Walker). Since the publication of that edition, Jackson has, and continues, to fight through medical problems that are chronicled in two additional chapters. The book was written before Jackson's physical condition resulted in a hip replacement in the spring of 1991, thus leaving off with a more optimistic assessment of his chances of returning to professional sports than is the consensus now. Although the dust jacked ignores the accomplishments of Deon Sanders and a handful of others by stating that Jackson ``is the only man in recent history to play both baseball and football professionally,'' the book is tightly written and portrays both the on and off field in the subject's life. Jackson's deviant childhood activities are portrayed realistically and unsympathetically, making his later accomplishments, including obtaining his college degree, even more admirable. He comes across as the human he is, not as some sort of unblemished deity. Standard black-and-white photographs, the majority identical to the ones found in the earlier edition, support the text. --Tom S. Hurlburt, La Crosse Pub lic Library, WI

    Bo Jackson: Excellent Story

    Rating: ***** One-liner: ¿Can¿t put it down.¿ This story takes place during Bo Jackson¿s lifetime: 1963-, in Alabama. Bo lives in a rough neighborhood, where children are exposed to drugs and violence. Since Bo was bullied by his older brothers and sisters, he grew up an angry child. Vincent Jackson always liked sports growing up. He also tried out for track, football, and baseball teams. He received the name ¿Bo¿ when his older cousin said that he was as tough as a boar. He kept the name ¿Boar¿ through his childhood days, especially when he was bullying others. One day, Bo was being bullied by an older boy. Bo was ready to shoot the boy, and he almost did, until he realized that doing that would be throwing his life away. He then shortened ¿Boar¿ to ¿Bo¿. Bo played football, baseball, and track all through high school. He was later offered a scholarship to Auburn University. Bo promised his mother that he would be the first person in his family to go to college. After winning the Heisman Trophy in college, Bo went on to play for Major League Baseball¿s Kansas City Royals and the National Football League¿s Oakland Raiders. Bo was very successful in both of these sports. I really liked this book. The author was very descriptive in describing Bo¿s life story and the challeneges he faced along the way. I would definitely recommend this book to someone who wants to hear a good story told and good reading material.
