Publisher Description

One of the most talented and polarizing athletes of our generation, Michael Vick’s stunning story has captured news headlines across the nation. From his poverty-stricken youth, to his success on the field in high school and college, to his rise to NFL stardom and his fall from grace, Finally Free shows how a gifted athlete’s life spiraled out of control under the glare of money and fame, aided by his own poor choices. In his own words, Vick details his regrets, his search for forgiveness, the moments of unlikely grace — and the brokenness that brought his redemption on the way to his celebrated return to the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Quotes

  • “Vick has apologized and acknowledged the suffering he caused. He has expressed his remorse and his desire to help more animals than he harmed by being an advocate for the humane treatment of animals. We realize the potential Vick has to reach at-risk youth and pull them out of the quicksand…”—The Humane Society of the United States

  • “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, Former NFL head coach for the Indianapolis Colts

    -
  • “I want to be remembered as a guy who never gave up, whether with my family, out on the football field, in a prison cell, or playing one-on-one basketball with somebody in the neighborhood. Standing firm in God always, pushing through, even in my darkest moments.”—Michael Vick

    -
  • “While Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vick tells the classic story of redemption and resilience in this reflective memoir, it stops just short of being a tell-all. Overall, the book portrays Vick as a reformed Icarus flying at the proper altitude after too many trips near the sun.”

    " Quick read. A glorified "mea culpa" that just screams of reasons why young athletes of all major sports should have guidance on lifestyle choices, finances, and the company they keep. 2 1/2 stars. "

    " As a huge football fan and an Eagle's fan at that, I really enjoyed this book. I didn't really follow Mike Vick till he came to Philadelphia. I knew just a little bit of his story and am very impressed with how he has turned his life around. I'm all about second chances. Great inspirational story! "

    " I enjoyed reading this book, and I am glad that Michael Vick has been given a second chance. What he did was horrible, and he admits that. But people make mistakes, and he seems to have learned a lot during his time in prison. "
