Publisher's Summary

Football legend Jerry Rice was selected for the Pro Bowl 13 times and won three Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers in his 20 NFL seasons. 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.
