Getting Up to Get Down (Book Review)
Slow Getting Up: A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile - Nate Jackson B
Published: Sept 2013
Once I stopped trying to compare Slow Getting Up to 2008's A Few Seconds of Panic by Stefan Fatsis, I settled in and enjoyed this book. Jackson's account of life in the NFL is entertaining, insightful and light-hearted despite the brutal injuries and subsequent procedures he had to endure during his playing career. Jackson's stint in the NFL my have been cut short, but his writing career looks to be long and winning.
