About the Author

Emmanuel Acho picked up a football and made it to the NFL. He picked up a pen and became a New York Times bestselling author for Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, followed by the #1 bestseller Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Boy. He picked up a microphone and won a Primetime Emmy for his groundbreaking online series, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, amassing more than 90 million views to date. All this by the age of thirty, because of his ability to think and act illogically.

Emmanuel, the son of Nigerian immigrant parents, grew up in Dallas with his three siblings. He is a 2021 Sports Emmy winner, Fox Sports analyst (cohost of FS1's Speak), and television personality. He is a former NFL linebacker and has a master's degree in sports psychology from the University of Texas.

The review goes on to praise that "his upbeat tone adds spunk and confidence" and adds that the book " brims with infectious positivity." -Publishers Weekly

"Former NFL linebacker, Emmy-winning broadcaster, and bestselling author Acho provides a step-by-step guide advising readers on how to stop letting society's metrics or allegedly logical expectations determine their value, success, or greatness." -Booklist
