Rice grew up in Crawford, Mississippi, the son of a brick mason. He developed his hands by catching the bricks that his brothers threw at him. From these humble beginnings, Rice blazed a path to greatness, becoming the leading wide receiver in the NFL.
In spite of Rice's legendary gridiron skills - or even his ability to transform himself into an instant ballroom-dance prodigy on ABC's hit TV series Dancing with the Stars - the surprising fact is that a guy like Jerry Rice is made, not born. In Go Long! Rice shares the inspirational lessons and empowering practices that have helped him attain success, both on and off the football field. Through the ups and downs of Rice's life and incomparable career, we discover how self-motivation, determination, and humility are the keys to achievement and true fulfillment.

My goal is to read 52 books in 1 year! I read 33 last year!
It was awesome to hear about the work ethic that made him into the top WR ever! I didn't realize that he was a man so focused on integrity and honesty.
I would reccomend that you read this book to another fan, but it has room for improvement.
It's worth the read.
Jerry of course?!
This is a good read, but like Jerry states, practise would help him write, a even better book.
