Bo Knows Bo

Vincent Bo Jackson, Author, Bo Jackson, Author, Dick Schaap, With Doubleday Books $18.95 (218p) ISBN 978-0-385-41620-7
In the improbable event that anyone does not know, Bo Jackson plays baseball for the Kansas City Royals and football for the Oakland Raiders, and appears in commercials for sneakers. Here, writing with Schaap ( Instant Replay ), he tells of his rise from grinding poverty as one of 10 children in a fatherless Alabama family; he was often hungry and given to extorting money from schoolmates. Athletics were Jackson's salvation: he starred in track and field in high school, then in football at Alabama's Auburn University, where he won the prestigious Heisman trophy. His story is heartwarming, a role model for young people. Photos not seen by PW. (Nov.)
