This book should be read by anyone with children, or young adults considering participating in contact sports that may result in concussive impacts to the head, neck and spinal column. As for collegiate and pro organizations continuing to disavow their responsibilities for the protection and care of their athletes, demonstrates a serious disregard for their fellow man, or woman. They must be personally and legally held accountable for the consequences of both their choices, and their actions. This book must be required reading by all parents and those responsible for the welfare of children and young adults, prior to their allowing, endorsement and placement of them in any of these sports. And, this coming from me, a former Olympic-class athlete. Fortunately, I was a swimmer. Then, a Paramedic for 27 years in Oakland, CA. I should know. Highly recommend this stark and compelling account of all-too-common tragedies passed off as mere entertainment, all for greed. A lesson for us all. God Bless Cyndy Feasel, her children and extended family. What a brave witness she is. Thank you Cyndy, Anthony Patch
To further cause mixed feelings I'm glad I didn't go further in the sport, or rather that I wasn't good enough to be tempted.
So I find myself wondering now when I care about the players on my team, wondering if maybe they shouldn't give up the sport. Then I turn on a game and enjoy that.
How will these thoughts and feelings work themselves out, in society but also in my own mind? Stay tuned.

All the above being said you probably wondering why I purchased the book - I am as well, but so glad I did! It's well write , the story flows and Cyndy has been brave enough to stand up and tell her story - no easy thing once you've read it.
All that aside I believe what is in this book is extremely important and translates to hard contact sports all over the world - in Australia the AFL please read it - someone you know or love could be effected and this story might just changes things for you.
To Cyndy stand up and be proud - you are an amazing mother and were a wonderful wife - congratulations on publishing such an amazing book, I read it in 1 day x
