Amazing autobiography that goes into depth of the great Lawrence Taylor's drug and marriage difficulties. The book was not wriiten as your ordinary novel however. LT expresses himself in a diary type fashion. He tells stories about all of his difficulties off the field as well as his success on it. He speaks of his devastating addiction with cocaine and the troubles he got into due to it. He was also not very loyal to his wife which caused their divorce and his not so close relationship with his kids. He tells of his near death stories involving his attempts to get cocaine. This was the most brutally honest book I've ever read. Readers who want the truths about the demons that plagued a gifted athlete will find even more than they bargained for in this frank confessional.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061031496, Mass Market Paperback)

On the football field, Lawrence Taylor was an unstoppable force of nature -- arguably the best defensive player in the game and, quite possibly, ever. But off the field, the life of a player who enjoyed a record ten Pro Bowl appearances and led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl victories was an all-out blitz, fueled by drugs, sex, and booze, and charging at breakneck speed toward total self-destruction. This is the shocking true story of a giant's fall ... and his remarkable journey back to the world.
