What's Next? is a self-help book aimed primarily at college and professional athletes who have left their sport, or are preparing to leave, and seek guidance as to what they need to do next. Author Derrick Furlow, Jr., a former college and professional football player, has been in those shoes. Some things he has learned the hard way, parlaying challenging, even dire, circumstances into sources of innovative solutions; other points of action he has sought out and implemented on his own. Furlow now offers sound advice and encouragement to athletes/people in transition.
