Super Bowl champion and former Boston College football star Mark Herzlich has written (withIsaac Eger)What It Takes: Fighting For My Life and My Love of the Game (NAL/Penguin, 2014), a new book that tells his story from his childhood to his cancer fight to his dream come true of playing professional football. His dream was put into serious jeopardy when he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare bone cancer, while playing for the BC Eagles. Doctors put his odds of survival as low as fifteen percent—and no one thought he would be able to run, much less play, again. But, Herzlich returned to the game of football. Told with candor and raw emotion, Herzlich’s story is for anyone who has ever fought to beat the odds, for anyone who has ever been told that what they are about to attempt is next to impossible. Giants Head CoachTom Coughlin provides the foreword for the book. Read an excerpt published in the NY Post.
