"OUT OF CONTROL is a penetrating, cautionary tale of one player's life in the fast lane, of reaching for fame and the brass ring, only to fall with dizzying speed to the bottom, where he had to begin the painful task of piecing his life together again. It is the story of how Henderson lost his self-respect and how he won it back. It is one football book that pulls no punches." This book has 304 pages. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson. It is a very unique PRESENTATION. "To ., enjoy my story and learn from my mistakes. Hollywood Henderson".

Sinopsis: The former Dallas Cowboys star looks at the world of pro football and reveals how he became involved with drugs, lost his self-respect, and, eventually won it back
From Publishers Weekly:
Among Henderson's milder confessions: he came from a broken home, the son of an alcoholic father; he did not show much football prowess until he attended Langston, a black college in Oklahoma. Drafted by the Dallas Cowboys, he became one of their stalwarts as the team went to the Super Bowl with increasing frequency. But, in addition to the antipain medication he and most of the other players were given before each game, he turned from heavy marijuana smoking to heavy cocaine use. He quit the Cowboys and, subsequently, played for the 49ers, the Oilers and Dolphins, with whom he suffered a career-ending injury. Then to his cocaine habit, which consumed some $6,000 a week, he added alcohol abuse. He was imprisoned for having sexual relations with underage girls, but since his release has remained drug-free. A candid and revealing autobiography. Author tour.
