This book is a tremendous book that teaches you leadership skills and how to overcome hardships. I love this book and would recommend it to anyone going through a tough time. Terrell Owens was one of the most controversial players in the NFL history. It thoroughly explains how Terrell Owens was targeted and made the villain on numerous occasions ,but still continued to thrive on and off the field.

this book is about NFL star Terrell Owens and his point of views of all the things that he has expericned in his football carrer and all the tension he has with alot of the population. the things that "T.O" talks manily is the problems he had with his former NFl team which were the eagels and how he thought that they didnt treat him good in one game where the quaterback on the eagles didnt throw him the ball for tghe game wining touchdown this made Owens quit the team and become a free agent. th ...more

Beneath the surface of this public figure lies the story of a young brother filled with scares from the life long wounds, and the healing love of a southern mother and grandmother who gave him the courage to fight back, in spite of a lifetime of rejection. This is a true story that could bring tears to a glass eye. Every young man could learn and benefit from the story of Terrell Owens

I learned that then media needs a villain and that it is often those who have been victimized most that are cast

T.O. has DEF changed my persepctive on Terrell Owens. Another reason why no one should ever judge a person by their apprearence on the gridiron. Because you don't know what they did to get there and accomplsh all that they has accomplished. If I didnt read this autobiography I wouldn't have known all the struggles he had to overcome to be where he is today. The great humanitarian he is. A person who never wanted to be a person who stood out but played the game right and won games (thats the reas ...more

Love TO! enjoyed reading his perspective on the events that transpired. would love it if he wrote another book chronicaling Dallas and beyond. I also learned a lot about the business side of the NFL (contracts, CBAs, etc) I am still kind of a new fan, just began following the league happenings seriously for a year or so. Been slowly learning since my husband and I got together. Huge Colts fan, but I love TO and have begun following his career as well. Hoping he comes to Indy:)

I really enjoyed this book. I learned a lot about the NFL and how contracts, free agencies and politics go. As usual - the media has done a pretty good job at having T.O. remain labeled as a conroversial person - the troublemaker, etc. I think the general public bought into what the media had to say and quite clearly - T.O. was treated unfairly by the Eagles and if the general public actually got the whole story instead of the media's edited version, they'd agree with me.

Really good book.

This book does not talk about football but the life of Terrell Owens. It gives us a background of his childhood and how he grew up without a father. Not knowing that his father live across the street from him the whole time. Also he was not always a popular kid that you thought he will be. He constantly got pick on by the older kids making his life harder. If you want to know the truth about T.O then this is book that you have to read.

I love T.O. and I am a huge Eagles fan so when he came to play for Philly, I was estatic. Well, it got ugly fast, and he left to go play for the Cowboys. Owens is a loud-mouth, but he is a very talented wide receiver, and his autobiography gives great insight into why he is the way he is. A quick, easy, and enjoyable read for people who like football and think that they know T.O.
this book was not very good. after reading it, my opinion about terrell owens stayed the same, as i was hoping it would not. he seems like an arrogant, selfless player, and it was reinforced by this book. it made me think he didnt really write it, as it says written with jason rosenhaus. its written like a fiction story, which bothers me a bit.

Was actually pretty good. Read it essentially around the time when Owens was a superstar diva in the NFL so it was perfect timing. Nothing special though if you're not into sports and football.
