Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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. Here is the honest story of a public figure facing his own mental illness head-on and emerging far better off for his effort. Playing Hurt ultimately offers an inspiring and empowering call to action when it comes to mental illness.

a difficult subject very well told. Thanks you

This was a book I almost stopped listening to a couple of time due to the story. Having watched John Saunders since he came to ESPN, I appreciated his skill and professionalism, but hearing the stories made me feel terrible. I have also been a long time fan of John U Bacon and his works. If you know or are suffering from depression I highly recommend this book. Amazing work
