Sure, on one hand, it could be argued that you already know what happens in a book about your life. There's very little excitement in flipping through the pages of a semi-autobiographical piece detailing what you do at your job and in your well-publicized social life. One could even argue that Rob Gronkowski is so visible that there are few Americans interested in the guy who would also find It's Good To Be Gronk to be necessary. If you want to know about his personal life, just Google him and you'll get some wacky Gronk news literally everyday.
On the other hand...
THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE HOLY SHIT HOW LAZY DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO NOT READ THE ENTIRE THING AT LEAST ONCE?!?!
Speaking with Maria Menounous on Mad Dog Sirius/XM Radio Friday, Gronk honestly answered the question "have you read your own book?" with "about 80-percent of it."
Hey, we applaud the guy's honesty. Clearly he's too busy living to make sure the last 20-percent of the book isn't just color photographs of him doing cocaine off prostitutes with his phone number listed in the captions. (By the way, do not be surprised if this exact scenario becomes a major plotline in "Ballers" season two.)
Well, Rob, you'll be glad to know that your book -- in its entirety -- does not disappoint. Just check out some of the stellar reviews it's getting on Amazon...
See? All you had to do was make sure the book was published using fresh book-making materials at a reputable, clean publishing facility. That's all people really want -- a hard exterior that looks nice regardless of how dumb its contents are. Well played, sir.
