Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the improbable event that anyone does not know, Bo Jackson plays baseball for the Kansas City Royals and football for the Oakland Raiders, and appears in commercials for sneakers. Here, writing with Schaap ( Instant Replay ), he tells of his rise from grinding poverty as one of 10 children in a fatherless Alabama family; he was often hungry and given to extorting money from schoolmates. Athletics were Jackson's salvation: he starred in track and field in high school, then in football at Alabama's Auburn University, where he won the prestigious Heisman trophy. His story is heartwarming, a role model for young people. Photos not seen by PW. (Nov.)
School Library Journal
YA-- Bo Jackson plays professional baseball in the spring with the Kansas City Royals. He does it well. He plays professional football with the Los Angeles Raiders in the fall. He does that well. In his spare time, he does television commercials for Nike and other organizations. Now, this dynamic young man has written his autobiography, and has done it well. This is a fast-paced book with snappy dialogue, written in a frank, open, and honest style. Jackson minces no words about how he feels about people and events. He tells readers he was the bad Jackson kid who got himself turned around and made a success of his life. His love of family, his own and others, permeates the book. The language is street level; this is how Jackson talks. He is current news, and considering all the sports records he is breaking, his name will be news for a long time. Students reluctant to read will pick up this book. Not only does Bo know Bo--everyone knows Bo.--Pat Royal, Crossland High School, Camp Springs, MD
