I gave it 5 stars bc i haven't ever read a book like this
As wife and mother of Boston College grads, I enjoy BC sports and joined with cheering supporters and fans at football games in Alumni Stadium in 2009 and 2010 as Mark Herzlich ran onto the field & stayed at the sidelines cheering on his teammates when he couldn't play and then returned to play one year later. So, the BC/Boston setting, the author and the events are very familiar. I enjoyed hearing Mark speak his story and all he shared. Many times it brought tears to my eyes as he spoke with insight, reflection and humor about his love for and from his family, friends, and teammates; his ups and downs through his cancer diagnosis and treatment; his journey and hard work to return to football and to to be part of the NFL; his connections with other cancer patients. Very readable and well done. Always a good sign when I look for opportunities to keep listening to a book, around the house and while driving -- which I did with this one.
