    My initial thoughts of Kirwan s Depression campaign were favourable although I must confess an aspect of me took it for granted that such a project was a symptom of famous people syndrome where popular well known folks get shoulder tapped to engage in such good works only to increase their popularity and so forth.This couldn t be further from the truth Kirwan did the project out of good will and genuine desire to help It was also a struggle to decide to engage in the project, even as world renowned sportsperson Kirwan s family were concerned about the negative perception of others.So anyway, the actual book was a surprise for me Far from an autobiographical or self help seminar the book really just contains a a straight forward and down to earth description of what Kirwan went through and a few pieces of advice especially for other manly men The book doesn t try to cover everything re depression nor does is dramatize or over celebrate Kirwan s life and career It really is a simple, succinct, summary of Kirwan s experience with depression and panic attacks, what helped, what didn t help and few pointers of advice.In short an excellent read for anyone.

    As someone just going through early stages of anxiety and depression, this book gave me real hope and helped me understand what I was going through It s very hard to explain to someone when you cannot understand the problem yourself, but reading this in the language and style it s written has helped me immensely Should be readily available in the UK.

    This book does an amazing job of fighting the stereotypes of depression and mental illness In All Blacks Don t Cry, John Kirwan remembers the the walk he went through battling severe depression and also gives tips of getting through He proves you don t have to be a soft person, as many think, to suffer from depression It was great he addressed the stereotype of Kiwi guys needing to be tough and invincible , as it simply isn t possible for people to never have times they find hard.A great memoir, I think this would a book of great support to people suffering.

    This is an excellent book not in the sit down and escape kind of way but in the I can do something for myself or loved one Here in New Zealand this guy is a famous sports hero and to publish such a book is outstanding It is very revealing but incredibly useful for somebody who is dealing with depression either themselves or as a support person The language is appropriate but the type set big with nice pictures so a non reader will not be put off.As a health professional there was nothing new or surprising for me however he demystifies the realities of mental health beautifully and deals with much of the stereotypical perceptions well So much so I have recommended it to several patients within a day of completing it A well constructed thought provoking self help book I hope he is the next coach of the All Blacks it would do much to empower the best in men.

    I was IN AWE when a Legendary All Black Rugby Player John Kirwan, came forward and spoke of major anxiety issues and depression at the height of his career some years ago issues he delicately called freaking out I enjoyed this book, specifically for men dealing with anxiety and or depression Rugby in New Zealand IS New Zealand and unfortunately that makes these mere rugby players gods To have such a talented player and man stand up publicly and tell his story when no one else would even utter the embarrassing words Mental Illness has helped changed SO MANY lives since his story was told.

    If you know someone who is suffering from depression and just don t understand, this book will help you can t expect to understand something you ve never experienced, but you can understand and empathise once you get that this isn t about you, it s about them.

    What JK has done for mental health especially men s mental health in New Zealand is nothing short of well words kinda fail me Heroic, life saving, life changing, he is just brilliant.

  8. says:

    For people outside of New Zealand, I can t emphasise enough how big a deal it was for John Kirwan to write this and discuss mental health issues in the open If it can happen to the most successful individuals in the ultimate man up silent and strong community that is rugby, it can happen anywhere I think it has helped innumerable people to gain awareness of mental health in themselves and their loved ones and also to give them hope.

  9. says:

    It feels like JK is talking to you personally talking to you So humble, so practical and real An easy read for anybody in depression, recovering or learning about it.

  10. says:

    Brilliant A great book, honest, brave and full of slivers of light that give hope and energy to fight depression Given Kirwan s standing as an all black this is a powerful wake up call for all men.
