Well written. Michael Vick is candid re his childhood and relationship with God; his rise to fame; making mistakes and recognizing where he went wrong; paying for the crime; renewing himself to God ; facing his teammates...and the world; persevering. Kudos to Mr. Vick for NOT quitting and continuing to prove he has what it takes to live an honest life. Some may never forget...but many will. Prayers for continued strength in Jesus.
He never fails and with HIm, neither will you. All young people should read this.
Wow. This book is about knowing a God who gives second chances. Mr. Vick also shows the human side of life where he perseveres and had to prove himself again and again. There were varied cross sections of people who were standing up for and standing by this man. People's thoughts are split as to whether he got off too lightly or that his punishment should have been more severe. Those personal feelings of readers will always be up and down along the spectrum of life. He got to where he was "too big to get caught," he resorted to lying to all who inquired of his actions which added to the weighty feeling of "making a comeback." The finality of serving time hit hard. This is a good read as an autobiography which seems to present facts rather than build up a false sense of one's self-worth which tends to skew a writers' message. It is hard to make up for 2 years lost out of the prime of life, but read this book to find out how it was done.
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,
