about

In Playing Hurt, a leading figure in the sports world-the quintessential "man's man," who seems to have it all-confesses his constant battle with depression. John Saunders welcomes readers into the heart of his desperate struggle through insights into the root causes of depression and explanations of modern medical and homeopathic treatments. His story unfolds as so many of our lives do-among family, friends, and colleagues-but it also peers into places we don't often discuss openly-psych wards and hospitals.

Playing Hurt ultimately offers an inspiring and empowering call to action when it comes to mental illness.
