Описание: Widely regarded as one of the best football players to ever tie on a pair of cleats, Walter Payton led a fascinating and ultimately tragic life. Told in the voices of those who knew him best, this biography of the Chicago Bears legendary running back tells the inspiring account of the reward of hard work and is an uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit. It is a story of inspiration, redemption, and the deep passion two brothers felt for the sport of football. More than a decade after the untimely death of Walter Payton, his older brother recalls the moments they shared and the continuing sting of the loss of a legend. This glimpse into Payton's life doesn't sugarcoat the issues or glorify the late superstar, but rather it addresses the subjects of suicide, drug abuse, and infidelity head-on with intimate knowledge of the facts. In this candid take, Walter's older brother discloses the true life of man simply known as "Sweetness."
Описание: The definitive biography of Chicago Bears superstar Walter Payton. In the twelve years since his death from cancer, Walter Payton's legend has only grown in magnitude. The Hall of Fame running back, who broke Jim Brown's all-time NFL rushing mark, appeared in nine Pro Bowls, won a Super Bowl ring with the 1985 Chicago Bears, and is still revered throughout the sporting landscape. Payton has become the lasting image of what's great about football. Yet in mindlessly canonizing the man simply known as "Sweetness," we have missed the opportunity to understand--and appreciate--one of the most uniquely complex and enigmatic superstars in the history of American sports. No longer. Based on meticulous research and interviews with nearly seven hundred family members, friends, teammates, and various associates, "Sweetness" delivers an unforgettable portrait of a man who lived his life just like he played the game: at full speed. From his childhood in segregated Mississippi, to Chicago, where Payton emerged from athlete to icon as he broke the NFL's all-time rushing record and led the Bears to Super Bowl glory; to his darker moments battling depression and adjusting to life after football, "Sweetness" is an eloquently written, revelatory saga of a complex, guarded superstar who died far too young.
