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.

From the heart

This book was well worth the time and I recommend it. It will provide deep insight into the type of turmoil that people with depression have to deal with and how difficult it is to remain productive. Saunders really opens up his life for the reader to view and I was glad to see that he was able to remain grateful for all of the good things that happened to him.
