“Warren Sapp is one of the greatest characters and best storytellers I've ever come across in this business. Add in the fact he's one of the most football savvy champions of all time and you've got yourself a must-read book.” ―Rich Eisen
“Sapp, the most colorful, most discussed athlete in Tampa Bay history, is on another one of those brutal, relentless rushes again. One more time, he is loud, and he is profane, and he is stepping on a different set of toes every time you turn a page… Uncensored and unapologetic, from the bounties at Miami to the turnaround in Tampa Bay to the final days in Oakland. It is as raw, as boisterous, as loud as Sapp himself.” ―Tampa Bay Times
“With his outsized personality, Sapp, a former defensive star with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, assisted by David Fisher, pulls the covers off the professional gridiron league in this blunt memoir with gleeful tidbits about the greats of the game he loved… Chatty, revealing, and always candid, Sapp's memoir takes the reader inside himself and the roller-coaster smash-mouth ride of the NFL.” ―Publishers Weekly

Having recently read Illegal Procedure by Josh Luchs, I found Sapp's account of NCAA violations at Miami interesting as well. He makes a pretty good argument for paying college players. As for his NFL experience, I enjoyed Sapp's unedited opinions of other great players, some of whom are still playing today. Since I have a son who plays high school football on the defensive line, I also gleaned a few useful techniques from this book as well. The worst thing a book like this can be is boring, and this book wasn't.
It's a well written, fast paced book as though Warren himself is sitting down talking to you about his life story. Sapp is honest, and one comes away with a different view about him rather then the media snippets that does not define the man.
The content is heavy on football tactics and stories. Included are some items only an insider would know such as trash talking, codes, and technique. The specifics on playing defensive line at the highest level is alone worth the price of the book. His experiences playing for the Tampa Bay Bucs is noteworthy along with his surprising revelation of defensive guru Monte Kiffin. He gives great detail on the coaching styles of Tony Dungy, Jon Gruden and Lane Kiffin.
Warren is more then a great player. He is also a student of the game who respects those before him. Sapp's own philosophy on 'football gods' is entertaining, honest and perhaps accurate. Adult language is prevalent throughout the book.
This was a surprising excellent book. I highly recommend it.
The book sounds exactly like Sapp. If you've seen Sapp on the NFL network, this book will be like watching 8 hours of Sapp, but much funnier. You have to admire lots of things about Sapp, his love for his family, particularly his mother, his love of the game, and his brutal honesty. I would have loved to have met Sapp. He sounds incredibly fun to be around without being mental like Michael Irvin and guys who have actually done stuff that is wrong and gone to jail for it. (Incidentally, he goes a pretty convincing explanation of his arrest for domestic violence, a case that seems to be an open and shut case of nonsense and and exploitation of Sapp).
The only disappointing part of the book is that it doesn't explain his divorce, it doesn't touch on his money problems, and doesn't deal adequately with his life after football, although he does spend some time on it. If we had gotten that part of the story we would have gotten to know Sapp as a person, instead of just Sapp as the superstar, superfunny athlete. Perhaps that stuff is for a later book 10 years later, but I wanted to hear about the lows as well as the highs in Sapp's life. He does discuss some things, like when his brother died, his first few years as a Buc, but we don't see the full range of emotions of Sapp in this book
Though I still can't forgive him for going to the U..... If he went FSU the Noles would have had a few more national titles.
