Publisher's Summary

Ex-NFL player, gentleman scholar, and Fox Sports personality Marcellus Wiley sucks you into a world of inner-city violence, Ivy League intrigue, and pro-football escapades that's one part touching, one part hilarious, and all parts impossible to put down.

Marcellus Wiley has never had a problem expressing his opinion, whether it was growing up in Compton with a football tucked under his arm, or going to college at Columbia University, where he learned to survive Advanced Calculus and self-important pseudo-intellectuals. Or making it to the NFL against all odds, where he put together a 10-year career of massive paydays, massive painkillers, and massive sacks of everyone from Steve Young to Peyton Manning.

Now, in Never Shut Up, Fox Sports' hottest rising persona doesn't hold back as he goes off on everything that's controversial with the game today, from concussions to political protests to inherent violence that's worse than the hood he grew up in. Not because he hates football, but because he wants to save it.

Marcellus has never held back, even when a lot of people wanted him to. Now, he's letting it all hang out - right there in this audiobook. Way more than just another book about the latest NFL scandals, this warm, moving, and genuinely funny story of awkward transitions, family loyalty, fame, fortune, and failure will make you fall in love with Marcellus - and football - all over again.

In Never Shut Up, Marcellus will take you on a truly unique journey from Crenshaw to Broadway to the Buffalo Bills and back again, sometimes making you laugh, sometimes making you cry, but always leaving you entertained.

Never Shut Up‼️The Audible is Bomb💫

Never Shut Up by Marcelles Wiley is a must read but the audible version is exceptionally entertaining‼️ Marcellus is Raw Real and Hilarious... my son and I listened to Never Shut Up on the way to school and basketball practice... we had a ball while sitting in traffic; sometimes sitting in the car to finish listening to the end of chapter once we were home‼️
As a former athlete and a single mom I found it to be insightful as well as an excellent bonding experience with my son as he’s growing into a young black man.
Wiley’s honesty and colorful narrative style are identifiable to all races & ages especially our younger generation that is interested in becoming professional athletes.
It is refreshing to hear a former NFL Player who has become just as successful in the media candidly talk about his experiences in life,college, and the NFL who focuses on the importance of Education and getting a college degree.
I strongly recommend Never Shut Up for all young athlete’s...the Audible is inspirational, funny and an extremely exciting listening experience ‼️

Marcellus shares his story from childhood to how he arrived at ESPN. Throughout the book there are details that allow you to envision what he is portraying. This is a must read for anyone in sports and sports fanatics in general.

Good story, but should have had a narrator

I really like Wiley. He's definitely a special athlete and man. But I found his narration choppy. Good voice, but the flow wasn't there.

WylStyles Life

It was great insight on Marcellus Wiley’s life and the focus and determination he had to make him and his family’s lives better. I like football and it was awesome hearing an ex-NFL football players perspective on playing in the NFL.

Life of a NFL Defensive End

An average story of an above average player. Marcellus tries to put himself on the pinnacle of NFL greatness but it comes off as elitist. He is very entertaining and helps telling average stories. It's not the most boring story but not the greatest biography I have listened to.
