Educating Dexter
 
I just bought a copy of Dexter Manley's book "Educating Dexter" really cheap off of Ebay. Has anyone read this book?

It says it was published in 1992, I had never heard of it until i came across it on Ebay. I thought I'd give it a try. Heres another copy being auctioned off.

Yeah I heard the same things about Dexter, but I am not sure if it's true.

I read this book last year (I bought it off Ebay as well) - it was a pretty interesting book. Talked a lot about his trouble with drugs and fitting in with his teammates, it was a very good read for redskin fans.

Dex never learned to read until he was near the end with him time with the Skins. He went to the Lab School (in Northwest DC) and learned to read. I remember a lot being made of this in the DC media. He got through college on oral exams and take home tests he got his girlfriend to do for him.

I remember the constant ribbing I would take being a Redskin fan because of Manley's inability to read. I did not know he had a book, sounds like a good read, maybe some positivity and good thoughts.

Love Dexter.....was the first player I remember watching when I was little. I even dressed up as him for halloween when I was 6 w/ my uncle's jersey and authentic skins helmet. The book is pretty interesting, it's amazing how OK State treats or at least treated star athletes so they could see the field. I never finished the book but check out the copy of his report card- some interesting classes.
