There will not, in all likelihood, be another professional athlete like Bo Jackson.

The larger-than-life figure is a tremendous subject for a biography.  Bestselling author Jeff Pearlman agreed.  He wrote “The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson”, recently published from Mariner Books.

Pearlman joined The Bald Faced Truth with John Canzano on Friday, and shared his process writing the book, if Bo Jackson approved, and what parents today can learn from Bo’s accomplishments.
