Michael Vick releases autobiography Finally Free Sept 4th

Michael Vick Looks Toward Future And Recounts Dogfighting Past With Autobiography “Finally Free”

Michael Vick wants to “tell it his way” and he’s doing it with his autobiography, Finally Free, set to hit bookshelves on September 4th.

Michael Vick began writing his autobiography during his 21 month incarceration in Leavenworth, Kansas for his role in a dogfighting ring. Bored and looking to pass the time, he wrote 70 pages in one day reports USA Today. Vick says the main reason for writing Finally Free is to help others who have made serious mistakes while at the same time being able to “tell it my way.”

“People are always going to have their opinions and feel the way that they do. You can’t change it. The reason I’m writing this book is so people can have an understanding and not just go off of what they see on TV or what they heard, the picture that’s been created.”

Vick accepts the fact that dogfighting will always be a part of his legacy but that he’s trying to make up for it:

“I’ve made peace with it, because I have no control over it. It’s not like I could do it all over again. But at the same time, I think I made a lot of changes for the better and I think in my quest to be an advocate against dogfighting and working with the Humane Society, I’ve helped more animals than I’ve hurt, and I continue to do that.”
