From the Back Cover: Now, in his own eloquent words, hear mega-football superstar Marcus Allen-Heisman trophy winner, Superbowl MVP, and record-breaking running back-tell his inspiring and unforgettable story. From his triumphant rise to athletic stardom, to his rocky 11-year relationship with Los Angeles Raiders coach Al Davis, to his controversial friendship with O.J. Simpson, and all the high and low points in between, here is an amazing story of a remarkable man.
MARCUS ON HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH RAIDERS COACH AL DAVIS:
"I could neither understand nor determine why Al Davis had declared war against me. It made no sense. But for all the motives suggested, none involved the possibility that the issue might be racial. Al Davis was many things that I didn't admire, but he was no bigot."
MARCUS ON HIS FRIENDSHIP WITH O.J. SIMPSON:
"I'd long since made up my mind that I would refuse to judge. And to this day there is but one certainty I can share: I am and forever will be tortured by the loss of two people who were my friends; one murdered, one now forced to live a lifetime being blamed for tragedy."
MARCUS ON FOOTBALL:
"I've always admired the sheer beauty of football. That may sound like a strange way to describe a sport that is built on the principle that the guy who knocks the other down the most is probably going to win. But the game is so much more if you just stop and look at it. It takes grace and style, as well as speed and strength. It teaches hard lessons about success and failure, joy and disappointment. And when played well, it has a poetry all its own."
