In the violent world of professional football no one plays the game with more vigor...and violence...than Jack Tatum and the Oakland Raiders. He hits people with pile driver force.

Read this book as a kid and I have been a Raiders fan since....."Just Win, Baby!" Commitment to Excellence
I do Love the game of football and this book was a fascinating read of how Football use to be. I liked his personally values of school and the love of the game. The game today is nothing like the good old days. Mr. Tatum does explain his reasoning behind the hard hitting and his personal views on how to change the game to make it better.
This book was the foundation for how I viewed being a safety (or corner).

Read as a child, I thought picking it up now would be pedestrian...but nothing can be further from the truth. This book was just enjoyable now as it was when I read as a wee boy.

one of the funniest, realest books you'll ever read. highly recommended for everybody, even if you've never watched a second of football in your life. tatum's analytical approach to violence and effectiveness is astonishing

After Jack retired from the NFL he is being ranked as the sixth hardest-hitting defensive back in league history ... 1-5 must still be serving time? Go Bucks!

If you ever played football, in particular safety, pick this up. Brutal. You don't know whether to hate the guy or embrace his honesty....either way, great read

If you don't like Football don't read this. If you do but you aren't an Oakland Raider fan this may hurt your feelings. I loved it.
As a raiders fan, this is a must read.
