~ This is what they are saying about Marty's book ~
Congressman Peter King (New York) "Just finished reading Marty Lyons’ new book “If These Walls Could Talk” a behind the scenes account of his four decades of experiences as a star player and announcer with the New York Jets".
"An All-American at Alabama where he played under the legendary Paul Bryant and a key member of the Jets famed “Sack Exchange” before moving to the announcers booth, Marty takes us to the locker room, the sidelines, the playing field and the press box. Marty shares insights as to what football is all about-the wins and losses, the friendships and the rivalries. It’s all there. And Marty tells us about much more than sports".
"Marty founded the Marty Lyons Foundation which has fulfilled the wishes of 8,000 kids diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. By providing happiness to these afflicted children & their families, Marty definitely does God’s work here on earth! His accounts of helping these children are heartbreaking & inspiring".
"Marty Lyons will always be remembered as an All-Time great football player. More importantly Marty Lyons will be remembered as a great human being! Read “If These Walls Could Talk” to find out why".
"You won’t be disappointed!"
Joe Klecko, NY Jets Teammate "Hey Pal, the book was very insightful! Well documented and clear about Marty Lyons the player and the man. You should be proud of it. And your kids will definitely see you in a different light. Great job, Marty! Not many people are aware of your excessive time given to help other people in need.
"PROUD TO KNOW YOU".
Iannick Di Sanza, FieldTurf “A captivating read! I’ve known Marty for years but his book has helped me learn so much about his playing career, life and experiences. The learnings truly help you refocus on what’s actually important in life.”
John Nitti, NY Jets Teammate & MLF Board Member “History has always admired the kindhearted warrior. As a player, Marty led with his chin; as a person, he feels from the heart. Marty is “a good and decent man who saw wrong and tried to right it. Saw suffering and tried to heal it. These words once described one of the country’s notable leaders, Robert F. Kennedy, but they are even more appropriate in reference to Marty Lyons. Read the book, which captures all of this so well. You will be inspired and I’m sure you will agree with my assessment.
One of Marty’s life lessons states: “Remember to define who you are by the way you live your life. The joy of life is seeing how others benefit from the way you live your life. We can all benefit from seeing the way Marty has lived his life in such an incredible way for others”.
