Art Donovan played 12 seasons in the NFL between 1950 and 1961 and was defensive tackle for the Baltimore Colts when they won back-to-back league titles in 1958 and 59. He was known for his sense of humour and this autobiography, published in the mid-1980s, has a reputation for being one of the funniest football books ever written.
