Updated: Feb 14, 2019
An insightful and invaluable book about a Kiwi bloke fighting back against depression
‘I know the pain at the gym is nowhere near as bad as the pain of depression . . . so I suck up the workout pain and push myself that bit harder.’
Continuing ill-health and countless surgeries sent Auckland businessman Dave Burt spiralling down into the depths of despair and hopelessness. Something had to change. With a mate he enrolled for a 10-week ‘ultimate body transformation’ regime at the local gym.
This thoughtful, insightful book is the remarkable story of how with a wonderful woman at his side – and the right support a Kiwi bloke fought back. This ten-week diary will make you laugh and cry, but above all it will provide rare insight to those struggling with depression.
NZ Booklovers has a copy to giveaway.
