Would you listen to Slow Getting Up again? Why?
Nate Jackson provides a very clear picture of what life is like for a professional football player, from the pain of a torn muscle to the availability of "jersey chasers" for a pro athlete. He peppers his story with more philosophical meanderings and extended metaphors than you might imagine, but it's largely an instructive, interesting, informative inside look inside the locker room.

Really enjoyed this book. Having seen my buddies go through this grinder after college, Jackson describes its eloquently and spot on.
