Great book, this story is honest in the telling
I've been lucky enough to get to see Marques Ogden teach in a seminar. I bought this book immediately after finding out that he'd written it, and that it was on Audible. I finished it that same day. There is so much to take away from his story. I admire that he was able to be open and honest about his life. I also am appalled at those who tried (successfully or not) to take advantage of him due to his NFL status. As a fellow entrepreneur, I have learned a lot from both this book, and hearing him tell his stories in person. I recommend this book 100% to anyone who is curious about what it feels like to transition from professional sports, to regular life.

Moving and Heartfelt True Story
Would you listen to Sleepless Nights again? Why?
Absolutely! There are so many life lessons in there, I would recommend young people, especially to learn from other's experiences, instead of the hard way, by reading and sharing this book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Sleepless Nights?
I was so moved by the love and respect he had for his father, I cried during the part where he passed away.
Which character – as performed by Don Hoeksema – was your favorite?
I loved the way he portrayed his Father, right on!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Life is a fast highway, pull over and think, before you decide which road to take.
Any additional comments?
I was very moved by how Marques never let anything bad completely take over, and how he relied on his family and friends and faith to turn his life around.
