This was really GREAT! So many people always looked at him as such a bad or good for nothing person. Who is a self-centered egotistical maniac who could care less about anyone or anything else. I always liked Terrell from the start no matter what the media said. I knew the media just wanted a story and I wouldn't give in to the TO is a jerk hype. This book is beyond inspriational. Through everything he went through, he just dug his cleats in deeper to the turf and wouldn't budge. Everyone wanted him to lose grip and fall. He just wasn't going to do it. I could really relate to him in this book. I was raised by my mother (mainly). She was always my best friend and like my gateskeeper. She taught me my values, right from wrong, believe in yourself, and to stand up for whats right. My life didn't stopout so easy as well, either. I got picked on a lot. I was the easy target. That's why I loved this book. That is exactly what he did, do what's right. I believe that everyone who follows NFL enough to know about TO or just know about his reputation needs to read this book. Anyone who is facing hardship or even just needs a little something to keep them going. Many were and are still so wrong about him and who they think. I must admit I truly admire him. What he has gone through to get where he is, A pro athlete, and no less a superstar! His problems didn't stop there either but he just wasn't going to give in. Not until the right thing was done. AWESOME BOOK!

In the book T.O. by Terrell Owens, Owens is telling his story about being with the Philadelphia Eagles. It starts from the point where everybody was excited to have him in Philly to where he got suspended for wearing tennis shoes. He starts it out as being a scrawny kid and growing up always getting picked on. He always had a dream though. That was to play on Sundays. He worked hard as possible to get to college and then get drafted to the NFL. This book is a very good read for readers who like autobiographies or even books about sports in general. He ended every chapter with a question or statement that made you want to read even more. I only wish he would have added more to the end of the book. Owens makes you anticipate what's going to happen next. He puts you in his shoes to see his perspective of the conflict with the Eagles. As the media around him was making Terrell look like a bad person, Owens makes you feel his emotion he had against the media.

I gave this book only one star because I couldn't choose no stars. This book sucks. T.O. is so full of himself and needs to grow up. If you read this book you will feel dumber because of it. I don't recommend this book to anyone. Please don't waste your money on this book!

I read this book in less than two days because I found it very interesting when actually hearing things from T.O.'s perspective. Although he tends to be unrealistic and exaggerative at certain points, he does make you think about the fairness of his contract and other aspects of the controversies surrounding him. I am not fully agreeing with what T.O. has to say in defense of himself in the book, but he has earned at least some of my respect. Despite all this, he is a Dallas Cowboy, and he would need to do a lot more to completely sway me to become a full-time T.O. advocate

The only people I constantly hear trash T.O. are (a) people who believe football is this highly moralistic and gentlemanly game that should never be sullied by the likes of outlandish celebrations and questionable post- game statements, and (b) disgruntled Philly fans. Just face it Philly fans, your team's gone from a Super Bowl contender to almost no threat faster than anyone could imagine possible, and it wasn't due to 'distractions', it was due to poor play and poor coaching. T.O. probably saw the ship sinking and decided 'Why the heck not say something that could really peeve the rest of the team? The worst they'll do is suspend me or let me go and the best it will do is not have me at all responsible for the toilet the team's about to go down...' When it gets to a point where the quarterback and receiver are so at odds that they can't even work together, someone's going to leave the team. Unfortunately, it was the actual point producer that was kicked off, and not the overhyped quarterback. Honestly, believing Donovan McNabb is a highly skilled and tough quarterback has given me the biggest laugh I've gotten since people in Texas believed Troy Aikman could actually take hits without getting concussions. It really is pathetic. As for the book, I'm looking forward to cracking it. I'll take most everything in it with a grain of salt, and I'll be curious how the Dallas fans will greet T.O. on opening day in Texas Stadium. That, and what he's going to do on the field to signify a public apology for stomping on the Star back when he was a 49er. I think he will be productive, at least for the first few years in Dallas. He respects Jerry because Jerry for some reason likes loudmouth braggarts like him, Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders, and he holds the purse strings, and he respects Parcells for the rings that are already in the man's possession. It could work out, but if it doesn't after a few seasons, that won't be a huge surprise either.

All the things we hear about T.O. are from people who dislike the guy. I never get to hear his side of the story.. Now I get too. Once he starts to score TD's everyone will like jump on the bandwaggon. Warning to the cowgirls..Treat TO with respect and he will respect you!! DO NOT DO ANYTHING THAT HE WILL FEEL LIKE BACKSTABBING because he will bring your team down. IE niners (mooch)and cowgirls (Mcnabb).. he does need a big brother to check his a$$ on the team though... I can't wait to read this book !!!!

Terrell Owens is the best Wide Reciever that th NFL has to offer today. This book tell's how the blame of a detriorating franchise was placed on the back of the most promising athlete the world has to offer

You may be a little biased because you live in Philadelphia. Worse off, you can't even write 3 sentences without a handful of errors! Leave the critiquing of books to those who have read the book and can write an informed and gramatically correct review. Don't let the fact that you are bitter that T.O. is an amusing character that people want to read about get in your way. I'm certainly going to read the book because I want to know what he has to say and THEN I will determine how much of it to believe. I suggest you do the same...

Without even opening this 'novel', one must know that the tell all story of T.O. is a waste of money. Only the simple-minded of America could care about this over-paid athelete's griping about not getting enough money. There's no I in team and there's not concept of team when T.O. is around. The only amusement offered from this book shall be his dellusional conception of what went down. The world doesn't hate T.O., it pities him.

I could never come to terms with forgiving this man for what he performed on my football body.
