In his memoir, the beloved U.S. and Everton goalkeeper finally allows himself to do something that he would never do on the field: he drops his guard. Howard opens up for the first time about how a hyperactive kid from New Jersey with Tourette Syndrome defied the odds to become one of the greatest American keepers in history. He recalls his childhood, being raised by a single mother who instilled in him a love of all sports and his struggle to cope with Tourette Syndrome and OCD. The Keeper is also a chronicle of the personal sacrifices he’s made for his career, including the ultimate dissolution of Howard’s marriage—a casualty of what he calls his “addiction to winning”—and its most painful consequence: his separation from his two children.
