In this New York Times bestselling memoir, Ray Lewis—legendary Baltimore Ravens linebacker and one of the greatest defensive players of his generation—holds nothing back on the state of football as well as his troubled childhood, his rise to athletic greatness, the storm that threatened to ruin his NFL career, and the devastating injury that nearly cost him a final moment of glory.
Ray Lewis is undeniably one of the biggest names in football—not only for his seventeen years in the NFL, but also for the dramatic events that nearly brought his career to a halt in 2000. In his memoir, Lewis shares honest accounts of his difficult childhood and delves into the anguish and controversy that he found away from the game. But these heartbreaks gave him the courage to trust in God and continue his dream to play for the NFL and win the Super Bowl.
From a rookie player to a football veteran, Lewis has experienced everything imaginable during his football career, and has become one of the best defensive players in the history of the NFL. I Feel Like Going On is the story of his incredible journey, and a sincere look at the most popular sport in America from one of football’s most revered players.

The Ravens’ all-time career leader in tackles and fumble recoveries, Lewis was selected for the Pro Bowl thirteen times (a record for linebackers) and named AFC Defensive Player of the Year three times.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book was a great read! I applaud Ray Lewis for allowing himself to be both vulnerable and transparent in sharing his triumphs as well as his trials in life and on the football field. He gave the world a very realistic view inside his life as a human being who also happened to be a NFL star. He shared his inner strengths and weaknesses as well as his most intimate feelings regrading his upbringing, his home life, and his determination to succeed despite the obstacles he faced. The book is very inspirational, motivational, and encouraging. It's a perfect gift to give to anyone but especially to any young man who needs encouragement and motivation to dream big, think positive, and to fight hard against all obstacles in order to succeed.
Great book about life and struggle to achieve greatness.
This is you right?
Great book, great person
Overall, I Feel Like Going On Life, Game, and Glory is a good read for the avid American football fan. For some football is a lifestyle and it is all they know. For a very select few it is a hobby or job. Ray Lewis tells what it is like growing up, and what his journey to the top of the NFL pyramid looked like. Lewis has had many rough patches along the way, but throughout this book, his whole journey is told through the eyes of Lewis himself and what he has been able to accomplish. If the reader is willing to take the journey with Ray, then the reader will not be disappointed, he does an excellent job at making the reader feel like they are right next to Ray going through his journey. The author does an excellent job at portraying his side of the story and does not leave any detail out. Lewis has had many awards throughout his storied career as a NFL linebacker, Lewis has been elected to 13 Pro-Bowls in his 17 year career, two-time Super Bowl Champion in 2001 and 2013, he was named Super Bowl XXXV MVP, NFL All-Decade team of the 2000’s, and was a finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2003, which is awarded to an athlete who excels on the field and off the field. His rise to the top may have been rocky, but it was a bittersweet goodbye to one of the greatest outside linebackers this game of football has ever seen.
Ray's story is honest and filled with truth. He is an inspiration and is hands down one of the greatest ever to play in the NFL. A compassionate man he is , a man of principle, a man of integrity, a devoted father, a devoted son. A fantastic read!
