It was announced today that Michael Vick’s autobiography, “Finally Free” will be released nationwide on September 4, 2012.
The book chronicles Vick’s early years, rise to football prominence, and eventual a 21-month prison sentence for federal dog fighting charges. Vick reportedly began composing his autobiography while incarcerated.
According to the book’s official website, there will be a foreword provided by NFL coach Tony Dungy.
“Finally Free” tells an amazing story. It’s not all pretty, but it’s real. If you’re like me – if you’ve ever done something in your life you wish you could take back — it will encourage you to learn that we serve a God of second chances and live in a country of second chances.
The story is not complete, by any means, but this book will let you know why I’m so proud of Michael Vick and honored to call him a friend – because he has made the later chapters of his life better than the earlier ones. And isn’t that what life is all about? -Tony Dungy
