Review

Finally Free tells an amazing story. It's not all pretty, but it's real. This book will let you know why I'm so proud of Michael Vick and honored to call him a friend. --Tony Dungy

Awful. The story of a sadistic, dog killing thug who should still be behind bars. I think every penny of the sale of this book should go toward animal rescue.

"As the little red dog lay on the ground fighting for air, Quanis Phillips grabbed its front legs and Michael Vick grabbed its hind legs. They swung the dog over their head like a jump rope then slammed it to the ground. The first impact didn't kill it. So Phillips and Vick slammed it again. The two men kept at it, alternating back and forth, pounding the creature against the ground, until at last, the little red dog was dead."

That is the work of a sociopath, not a human. This book was so poorly written I couldn't get through it. Tried to give him the benefit of the doubt to see if he had anything new to add but no, he spends his time trying to divert your attention. He doesn't regret what he did, he regrets getting caught. He didn't go to jail for animal abuse, he went for running a fighting operation. If you want the real story of the dogs and a glimpse of the monster that inhabits the body of Vick then read Jim Gorant's "Lost Dogs".

And why is he even writing this? He isn't old enough to do an autobiography, what is he "finally free" of? Probation? Fines paid? Did BADRAP or Best Friends ever get fully paid for taking and rehabbing his former dogs? And "what portion" goes to what rescue groups? He hired a PR team to help rehab his image but the only way they could do that was manipulate him like a puppet. He's on some sort of 10 year plan to "make things right" which included tripe like this. The only problem is you can't rehab someone with no soul. He sold his long ago and is trying to get us to believe he got it back. Doesn't work that way. Let's hope when Karma finds him she's a total bitch.

I don't care that it's free. I wouldn't download this trash if Amazon paid me. If I want to read about a violent criminal with an antisocial personality disorder, I'll find one that centers around the truth and not just a greedy crook trying to make himself marketable.

Dross.
What kind of soulless hacks would 'collaborate' on this book with this sociopathic dog torturer?

If you bought this book you are supporting an animal abuser. I don't care if you paid a buck for it. Amazon you should be ashamed to even list this book. This man electrocuted dogs in his pool with his car battery. Seasoned animal control people said they will never never get over seeing the claw marks etched into the CEMENT walls of the pool. He skinned dogs alive hanging them from trees to use as bait.

I've read a lot of autobiographies lately and this one is by far the worst. At no point does he go into any real details, skips over facts and just gives generalizations of what he was doing. There is no mention of drug use thru the first few chapters, but then he is mad he cant get into the drug program in prison? How about explaining WHY you should be in the program and what you were doing. Come clean with what you did. The chapter on dog fighting spends more time saying what he did was wrong and says nothing about what he did. Just writing "i made mistakes" doesnt explain anything. My 4 year old explains things better.

Bottomline is dont bother with this book. It is boring, has no emotion and feels like a publicity stunt more than anything. If you want to read a GREAT book about downfall and redemption checkout Duff McKagan's book.

Finally Free ... I'll bet the dogs he electrocuted, hanged, strangled, slammed repeatedly to the ground, drowned, and tortured with his bare hands wish they could say the same. But they can't. Because HE KILLED THEM. He's not sorry for what he did. He's only sorry he got caught. He's said himself that he'd still be fighting dogs if he hadn't been caught doing so. What he did wasn't a mistake. It was a conscious effort to torture, abuse, and kill dogs. He is a sociopath, and if you think what he did was of no consequence, or that he "did his time," then so are you.

And for what it's worth, he's not even a good football player anymore. Guy can't go a single game without getting injured.

Take the money he's asking for this waste of a perfectly good tree and donate it to your local animal rescue instead.
