This powerful memoir has the former NFL football player, now an actor, work through his issues with managing anger, misogyny, shame about his sexual appetites, and dishonesty. The culture of masculinity he absorbed from his dysfunctional family and the racism he endured are not pretty. But instead of sounding like he's moralizing, his performance is full of humility and appealing wonder. His audible resonance with the drama in his life makes him sound gentle but never weak or victimized. Though his experiences as a Black man are part of his story, the lessons offered here are broader than that. His impressive self-awareness and keen insights make this an essential audio for all men who want to grow and become more honorable human beings.
