It would be no exaggeration to say that Jim Brown was the greatest football player to ever live, but his phenomenal nine-year career with the Cleveland Browns is only part of his remarkable story. In this biography, Dave Zirin traces how Brown parlayed his athletic fame into stardom in Hollywood, became a Black Power icon in the 1960s, formed Black Economic Unions to challenge racism in the business world, and worked as a truce negotiator with street gangs. Taking note of Brown's turbulent personal life and cantankerous public persona, Zirin also documents the dynamic Hall of Famer's lifelong legal issues.
