Product description


'Cricket forms the bedrock of Barry's life journey, weaving through this evocative memoir. A powerful and engrossing witnessing, of personal and family mental health experiences. Thank you, Barry, for writing so candidly about taboo themes; with meaning, connection, understanding and love. And for continuing another innings.' --Dr. Mark R. Cross, Consultant Psychiatrist Author of Anxiety: Expert advice from a neurotic shrink who's lived with it all his life

'Mental ill-health casts a shadow over almost every Australian family. We have that in common but every story in unique. Barry Nicholls weaves his life story in and out of cricketing history and reveals his own struggles and those of his family, in particular his brother Steve. The title contains the vital message of hope - and I would add that life is not merely a single match. There is always next week and even next season. And it is always possible to find a good coach and learn some new skills.' --Patrick McGorry AO, Professor of Youth Mental Health, University of Melbourne
