Synopsis

According to a recent Harris Poll concussion rates for children under age 19 who play tackle football have doubled over the last decade, most occurring during practices. Anthony Davis had the equivalent brain of an eighty-five-year-old man. And yet he was only 55 years old when he met Dr Amen. How do you suppose a former professional football and superstar college player might acquire such extreme damage to his brain? Head injuries, concussions, traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE are all part of the answer. Through his diligent efforts, Anthony Davis has rehabbed his brain working one on one with Dr. Amen and his team. His pioneering, selfless efforts with the issues of brain trauma, and in particular, the effects of concussions in his professional football career, has moved the subject of Football Concussions out of the dark corners of afflicted athletes and their fearful, angry and confused families into the very center of American debate. Davis' most memorable performance was also one of the most impressive single-game football performances ever recorded, scoring six touchdowns (four rushing, two on kick returns) in a single game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in 1972. This book will shock you, educate you and share a little about the sport industry as a whole. Most of all it will inspire you to spread the word and talk more about this important problem in our sporting events.
