Alex Karras: My Life in Football, Television & Movies, by Alex Karras ISBN 0385125291
Three out of five stars
While he originally rose to fame as a football player, Alex Karras was a multi-talented man. After his career as an athlete was over, he became a successful actor in television and movies and a talented speaker. In many ways, he is a role model for how pro athletes can have careers and gainful employment when their days on the field are numbered. Unfortunately, this book is a significantly abridged version of his life, at only 81 pages with many illustrations, all descriptions are superficial.
Acceptable as a simple autobiography written for teens, this book will disappoint readers interested in some depth regarding the very interesting story of the life of Alex Karras.
