The unvarnished true story of the tragic life and death of Aaron Hernandez, the college All-American and New England Patriots star convicted of murder, told by one of the few people who knew him best: his brother. Jonathan does not portray Aaron as a victim; he does not lay the blame for his crimes on his illness. He speaks openly about Aaron’s talent, his sexuality, his crimes and incarceration, and the CTE that ravaged him - scientists found that upon his death, Aaron had the brain of a 67-year-old suffering from the same condition.

Following the Boston Globe series on Aaron Hernandez, this book provides a very different insight into the childhood and life of this troubled sportstar. Offers some additional history to the now well known story.

It's written very much in a child-like perspective memory from his brother. I feels it over simplifies in parts but otherwise an entertaining read
