Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very informative. It tells about Desmond growing up and lessons he has learned along the way. Parents that cared and made sure their son was raised properly, and fought the school system that wanted to label him impaired. Shows life as a football player at Michigan, the pro's, and his personal life past and present. Great read!

I bought this for my Dad who is a UM grad. He really liked it! I haven't read it, but it seemed like it had a good balance of stories/information and personal pictures.

I was fortunate to have spent a little bit of time with Desmond Howard at the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2012 and I found him to be a real gentleman. I purchased this book to learn more about his life and it provided this information.

I suspected that Desmond came from a family encouraged background and apparently he did.

I enjoyed it!
