Play Hard, Die Young: Football Dementia, Depression, and Death
Why do so many retired NFL players lose their hard-earned millions and end up destitute? Why are football players three to five times more likely to develop major depression than their fans? The answer is gridiron dementia, permanent brain damage caused by blows to the head during games or practice. In this book the author launches a national effort to alert players, parents, coaches, trainers, and school administrators to the dangers of repeated concussions.
