Format: Paperback
This is an interesting story of a man who has been from top to bottom in his life and has survived to tell about it. You get to know Gene a little bit in this book but you have the feeling there is more to him than is said in the book. He gives a little insight into the early days of pro football as only someone who's been there can do. I found the book an easy and informative read.

An excellent book depicting the story of a wonderful man. Gene has had a colorful life and done so much to help others. He is a kind, considerate and loving human being and I am proud to be part of his family.

I remember Gene Mingo as a Bronco and remember hearing about his problems in the 80s. As someone who reads everything about the AFL, I was looking forward to reading this. Disappointing read.

Mingo has led a colorful life, on and off the field. He is one of the few pro players who not only had no college diploma (quite common) but no high school diploma either. Yet despite that, he made it to the AFL and was star in its early years. And he is one of the few black placekickers in the game to this day.

But Mingo led a charmed life in many ways. he describes growing up in Akron, a child with two loving parents that adored him and he adored. Yet he gets into trouble constantly, and the book goes into great detail. Mingo whines constantly that his intentions were good and he does not understand why he gets into these messes. Yet he continues to get into mess after mess, even way through his adult years.

Book starts off with his worst one, in a drug-crazed paranoia, he accidentally shoots his common-law wife. Yet Mingo somehow avoids getting into serious trouble, his wife declines to prosecute.

No reflections in this book at all, straight narrative. Mingo does not realize that he has led a very charmed life and neither questions or thanks others very much for it.
