Summary
The complex story of a living legend: Jim Brown was an astonishing physical specimen with tremendous skills and intelligence. An athlete who played a number of sports at Syracuse University, he discovered that it was the violence of football that appealed to him most. The idea of physically dominating other men, surviving ferocious battles on the field, fueled a record-making NFL career that led to the Hall of Fame. He battled his opponents, sometimes his teammates, and often the Cleveland Browns' legendary head coach Paul Brown. Never shy about expressing his opinions, Brown would become the subject of FBI investigations and surveillance. Then there were the women--the patient wife who endured public humiliation; the girlfriends and the scandalous accusations of violence. But Jim Brown had ambitions greater than football: he launched a movie career as Hollywood's first black action hero, and he became a civil rights activist as well.--From publisher description
