After years of pushing defensive linemen around as an All Pro with the Vikings and Ravens, Matt Birk has now transitioned into a published author.
His first book is entitled "All-Pro Wisdom: The 7 Choices that Lead to Greatness".
Written with his neighbor Rich Chapman, the book's description promises to "take you on a very personal journey that will help you discover the Seven Choices that will put your life and your business on a trajectory for greatness."
