The book follows Colin's life in chronological order starting with his childhood and working into his professional career. Because my boy is in high school and sports are a huge part of what he enjoys about school- we both enjoyed reading about Colin's beginnings in sports and how he got started playing in high school. A lot of the book follows his professional career, though delving into his college years at the University of Nevada and moving onto his NFL career. I'm not the biggest football fan, but this book was written in a really interesting way. It did include a lot of statistics, but at the same time didn't overwhelm you with numbers. There was a STORY behind the numbers, and that's what made it an entertaining read.
I especially liked the last chapter which focused on the legacy that Colin has created and what the future may hold in store for him. He's obviously a brilliant sports star and learning about his life up to fame was very interesting. My boy is now full of even more San Fransisco 49ers trivia. There were a lot of things he knew about Colin before reading this book, but he did feel like he walked away with a lot of new knowledge. There were a few things that he was surprised to learn and he really did enjoy the book.
The book was well-written and easy to follow. Unlike some NFL biographies we've read together that were poorly organized and full of statistics but lacking any kind of substance- this book did a great job of not only providing you with the facts, but also giving you an amazing story that was definitely worth reading. Definitely one of the best NFL biographies I've read- and it certainly got my boy inspired to read, which earns it a definite 5 stars from me.
