Football hero Jerry Rice grew up in Crawford, Mississippi, the son of a brick mason. He developed his hands by catching the bricks that his brothers threw at him. From these humble beginnings, Rice blazed a path to greatness, becoming the greatest wide receiver in the NFL and winning three super bowl rings for the San Francisco 49ers.
In spite of Rice's legendary gridiron skills, or even his ability to transform himself into an instant ballroom-dance prodigy on ABC's hit TV series Dancing with the Stars, the surprising fact is that a man like Jerry Rice is made, not born. In Go Long! Rice shares the inspirational lessons and empowering practices that have helped him attain success both on and off the field. Through the ups and downs of Rice's life and career, we discover how self-motivation, determination, and humility are the keys to achievement and true fulfillment.

“Rice was nobody’s fool as a player. He kept his tongue in check for most of his twenty-one-year career, understanding performance, not oratory, was his occupation. Now retired, Rice has taken the muzzle off [and] it is that persona which emerges from the book.”
