"There isn't a man more qualified to prove that vulnerability is
strength than Terry Crews. In this raw, revealing memoir, he
chronicles his journey through abuse, anger, insecurity, and
misogyny-and shows how he found a better path. If his words don't
move you to tears, you might be a robot."
-Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife
"From the fields of Flint, Michigan, to the packed arenas of the NFL and Hollywood, Terry Crews's life is a testament to the power of physical and mental toughness. But there's a deeper journey at work here that goes beyond one man's story of overcoming painful challenges and long odds. The roots of Terry's resiliency run deep and connect him to a history he carries inside."
-Henry Louis Gates Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, Harvard University
"Terry is an extraordinary storyteller. This memoir is powerful, profoundly human, and a behind-the-scenes look at an incredible life."
-Amanda Nguyen, civil rights activist and Time Woman of the Year 2022

-Bear Grylls, global adventurer, TV presenter, and bestselling author of Never Give Up
"I haven't stopped thinking about his book since I read it. I think it was so brave of [Terry] to share his story. It can't have been easy to be so honest about some of his hardest moments, but I think it will help a lot of people-especially men."
-Gayle King in Oprah Daily
