Product Description

One of the most talented and polarizing athletes of our generation, Michael Vick's rags-to-riches, ridicule-to-redemption story has captured news headlines across the nation. Finally Free chronicles his years growing up in a poverty-stricken neighborhood, his success on the field and his rise to stardom in the NFL. The book also details how a gifted athlete spiraled out of control under the glare of money and fame-and the brokenness that brought his redemption. In his own words, here are the behind-the scenes details of his wrong decisions, his fall from the spotlight, his search for forgiveness, and the unexpected, life-altering grace he received on the way to a celebrated season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010.

Publisher's Description

One of the most talented and polarizing athletes of our generation, Michael Vick’s stunning story has captured news headlines across the nation. From his poverty-stricken youth, to his success on the field in high school and college, to his rise to NFL stardom and his fall from grace, Finally Free shows how a gifted athlete's life spiraled out of control under the glare of money and fame, aided by his own poor choices. In his own words, Vick details his regrets, his search for forgiveness, the moments of unlikely grace—and the brokenness that brought his redemption on the way to a surprising, fairy-tale season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010.

    This is an unusual book in that one has the impression that Michael is speaking as he is. We come from opposite ends of the spectrum, but our life lessons are so similar. My hope and prayer for him is that he continues to put our gracious and loving LORD first in his life. I'll always be grateful to that agile,

    "out of the pocket " kid who introduced me to football fun.

    This is a great book and I would highly recommend it to any one and especially those who are football fans! Michael Vick is very open and truthful and after having read the book, see him in a totally different light.
