Cricket Suisides 20 Mar 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A well researced book giving good insights into the subject matter.Some of the cases seem to be a little loosely connected with the game but that does not take away the fact that an inordinate number of people connected with game do take their own lives. A very good read!

Silence of the heart 31 Jan 2014
By Peter M. Olsen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A sad look at the pressures and the beguiling way cricket can prey on those depressive, negative thoughts and pressures that sportsmen suffer from. And the loneliness. Seems cricket attracts suicides and depression more than most sports do. Going way back to the 19th and early 20th Centuries was for me a bit repetitive but there again the book is a history on suicides so I mustn't complain.
