Review

Warren Sapp is one of the greatest characters and best storytellers I've ever come across in this business. Add in the fact he's one of the most football savvy champions of all time and you've got yourself a must-read book. (Rich Eisen)

Sapp, the most colorful, most discussed athlete in Tampa Bay history, is on another one of those brutal, relentless rushes again. One more time, he is loud, and he is profane, and he is stepping on a different set of toes every time you turn a page… Uncensored and unapologetic, from the bounties at Miami to the turnaround in Tampa Bay to the final days in Oakland. It is as raw, as boisterous, as loud as Sapp himself. (Tampa Bay Times)

With his outsized personality, Sapp, a former defensive star with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, assisted by David Fisher, pulls the covers off the professional gridiron league in this blunt memoir with gleeful tidbits about the greats of the game he loved… Chatty, revealing, and always candid, Sapp's memoir takes the reader inside himself and the roller-coaster smash-mouth ride of the NFL. (Publishers Weekly)

Some people might consider Warren Sapp a jerk, but I found his book to be an interesting and honest account of life as an elite football player. There is no denying his talent on the defensive line, but many object to his trash talking nature. Personally, I've always wondered what was being said on the field and some of it is hilarious.
Having recently read Illegal Procedure by Josh Luchs, I found Sapp's account of NCAA violations at Miami interesting as well. He makes a pretty good argument for paying college players. As for his NFL experience, I enjoyed Sapp's unedited opinions of other great players, some of whom are still playing today. Since I have a son who plays high school football on the defensive line, I also gleaned a few useful techniques from this book as well. The worst thing a book like this can be is boring, and this book wasn't.

i got a chance to read this book at the local barnes and noble and i have always dug and respected Warren Sapp. i thought it was bogus how he slipped a bit in the draft. he should have easily been a top 5 pick. however tampa bay got the best out of him. always dug his candor about the nfl and other players. dug the part in the book about Jerry Rice. Sapp always been cool folks and this book is on point.

Being a football fan I found Sapp Attack interesting and an easy read. I use my e-reader to help me get back to sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep, 15-20 minutes and I'm out again. I couldn't put this book down I was up 3 hours ever night until I finished. (I'm a slow reader) Warren you owe me some sleep time.

No matter how you feel about sometimes controversial Warren Sapp - this is a great story on how one man climbed from nothing to the top. Sapp's life was filled with adversity, but he never made excuses. He just went out and conquered.

It's a well written, fast paced book as though Warren himself is sitting down talking to you about his life story. Sapp is honest, and one comes away with a different view about him rather then the media snippets that does not define the man.

The content is heavy on football tactics and stories. Included are some items only an insider would know such as trash talking, codes, and technique. The specifics on playing defensive line at the highest level is alone worth the price of the book. His experiences playing for the Tampa Bay Bucs is noteworthy along with his surprising revelation of defensive guru Monte Kiffin. He gives great detail on the coaching styles of Tony Dungy, Jon Gruden and Lane Kiffin.

Warren is more then a great player. He is also a student of the game who respects those before him. Sapp's own philosophy on 'football gods' is entertaining, honest and perhaps accurate. Adult language is prevalent throughout the book.

This was a surprising excellent book. I highly recommend it.

Being from Tampa and following the Bucs since 1976 Warren Sapp is a very polarizing character. Once I picked this book up I couldn't put it down, Whether you like Sapp or not, this is a very entertaining read. This book brought me a different perspective on the life of Warren and I really have started to judge the man based on his on field accomplishment.

Though I still can't forgive him for going to the U..... If he went FSU the Noles would have had a few more national titles.

Since I moved to Clearwater in 1997 and discovered Warren, I immediately became a Sapp fan and of course a Bucs fan. His personality on the field were hilarious. I bought everything I could Sapp. II was most disappointed to see and hear how rude he was to his fans who loved him. It was nice to read his book and see his other side and where he came from. Also interesting was the story behind the scenes of the team. I couldn't put his book down. It's an easy read. I am really glad that he went into the Hall of Fame. I had tears in my eyes watching his speech. I could have read more.

This is a pretty funny book -- at least the first 3/4 of it. The negative reviewers seem to have some agenda against Sapp, for what reason, I have no idea.

The book sounds exactly like Sapp. If you've seen Sapp on the NFL network, this book will be like watching 8 hours of Sapp, but much funnier. You have to admire lots of things about Sapp, his love for his family, particularly his mother, his love of the game, and his brutal honesty. I would have loved to have met Sapp. He sounds incredibly fun to be around without being mental like Michael Irvin and guys who have actually done stuff that is wrong and gone to jail for it. (Incidentally, he goes a pretty convincing explanation of his arrest for domestic violence, a case that seems to be an open and shut case of nonsense and and exploitation of Sapp).

The only disappointing part of the book is that it doesn't explain his divorce, it doesn't touch on his money problems, and doesn't deal adequately with his life after football, although he does spend some time on it. If we had gotten that part of the story we would have gotten to know Sapp as a person, instead of just Sapp as the superstar, superfunny athlete. Perhaps that stuff is for a later book 10 years later, but I wanted to hear about the lows as well as the highs in Sapp's life. He does discuss some things, like when his brother died, his first few years as a Buc, but we don't see the full range of emotions of Sapp in this book
