NATE JACKSON at Books Inc. Santa Clara

NATE JACKSON at Books Inc. Santa Clara

New York Times-bestselling writer and former Denver Broncos NFL wide receiver and tight end Nate Jackson shares his latest work of nonfiction, Fantasy Man: A Former NFL Player's Descent Into the Brutality of Fantasy Football. Six years have passed since the former Denver Broncos tight end wore a helmet, and every day he drifts further from the NFL Guy, the sanctioned-violence guy, the psychopath who ran head first into other psychos for money. But Nate hasn't quite left the game. Bed-ridden by a recent surgery to remove bone fragments in his ankle, he's trying to defend his title in one of the millions of leagues captivating America through modern fantasy football, the interactive human poker game started by rotisserie leagues, boosted by ESPN and Yahoo!, and now elevated to that rarefied world of vaguely-legal Internet gambling by FanDuel and DraftKings.com.

And this time it isn't a 300-pound wall of flesh rushing to crunch his spine.

It's worse.

Exploring the fantasy and the reality of professional football after you ve left the field, Fantasy Man is as funny, self-deprecating, and shockingly honest as Slow Getting Up.
