Never Give Up: My Stroke, My Recovery & My Return to the NFL by Tedy Bruschi

The inspiring true story of NFL superstar Tedy Bruschi s amazing comeback from a stroke and return to the game New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi is one of the most popular players in Pats history, playing in four Super Bowls and helping win three. Not long after the third one, in February 2005, Bruschi suffered a stroke. In Never Give Up, Bruschi reveals how he and his family faced the physical and emotional challenges of this life-threatening event and how he managed to rejoin the team just eight months later- earning himself a share of the Comeback Player of the Year Award and full ownership of the prestigious Ed Block Courage Award. From the morning of the stroke and his initial plans to retire through his rehabilitation and ultimate decision to return to the NFL, Bruschi shares his incredible personal journey of recovery, including powerful insights he gained from his experiences as well as the support and encouragement he s given to other stroke victims. Like Lance Armstrong s bestselling It s Not About the Bike and Dennis Byrd s Rise and Walk, this book will cross over from sports fans to a huge mainstream audience drawn to Bruschi s uplifting, deeply human story of courage and triumph over adversity. Tedy Bruschi (North Attleboro, MA) has been on the New England Patriots for 11 years, playing in four Super Bowls and winning three. He has also been named to the Pro Bowl. He is an official spokesman for the American Stroke Association. He lives in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, with his wife, Heidi, and their three sons. Michael Holley (Boston, MA) is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Patriot Reign: BillBelichick, the Coaches, and the Players Who Built a Champion (0-06-075795-7). A former sports columnist who has worked at the Boston Globe and the Chicago Tribune, he currently co-hosts the Dale & Holley show on Boston s WEEI, the #1-rated sports radio station in America.
