Let's begin with me looking up the definition of relentless: "oppressively constant; incessant( "continuing without pause or interruption")." Appropriate title is appropriate. Just when you think you know football you read a Memoir by a player you know little to nothing about and are left feeling like you also know little to nothing about football. Whereas he lives and breathes the sport you are a casual fan. Discovering his work ethic and never give up attitude and basically an eff the haters approach to everything, Julian did what it took to not only make it to the NFL, but make it under the wings of Bill Belichik and Tom Brady. Reading a book about a Patriot, as a Giants fan was interesting. I put my allegiance aside and just took in all that Julian had to say. I even squee'd at the what might have been finding out he did indeed talk to the Giants seriously when his contract with the Pats was up; but he knew in his heart he was born and bred to be a Patriot and that Boston was his city even if he came from California like his bff; Tom Brady. Not only did I get a good perspective of Julian in this book I got impressions of his Father, Brother, Sister, and fellow players like Tom Brady, and Rob Gronkowski. Even a small hindsight of the human disaster that was Aaron Hernandez- little did I know he could play football. Julian makes him sound like a likable person, but having the hand up on history and real life- such an unfortunate ending for him. And I will also admit, Julian is one hell of a storyteller. I was gripped on his every word. I even took a pen to the book (I can hear people cringing to this fact) and underlined quotes and things I wished to go back through and look at again. I know you need to be a special kind of person to read a book like this, but if a diehard Giants fan like me can read this, and like and appreciate the guy- anyone can. The moral of his entire story I pretty much pictured the Little Engine that Could. He thought he could and he did, no matter what his size and the obstacles and naysayers in his way.
