This is a book of choices and consequences, of chances taken and battles that are won and lost. At the end of the day for me it is about accepting that everything that happens to you is a lesson and stepping stone if we are willing to accept it. The road ahead is not always easy, but as Russell shows it is one that can lead to amazing rewards if you don't give up.
Of football, he writes in the poem "The Price to Play": "Maybe I thought brain damage was a poetic way to go." And in "My History, My Future," the legacy of "40 acres and a mule" becomes "100 yards and a pigskin."
Invoking the stories of Adam & Eve, Sodom & Gomorrah, Excalibur, Wonderland, and Neverland, he grapples for balance, learning (in the poem "Last Russell Standing") to "become more gracious with myself"—as we must all learn to do in our own ways for our own reasons.
I got it and finished it the same day; this book is extremely raw and honest. When you put it down you feel like you really know R. K. Russel, as well as relating on deep levels.
I highly recommend Prison or Passion.
