This review is from: A Life Too Short: The Tragedy of Robert Enke (Hardcover)
FELT COMPELLED TO WRITE MY FIRST EVER REVIEW ON AMAZON . THIS IS WITHOUT DOUBT THE FINEST SPORTS BOOK I`VE EVER READ. MY IGNORANCE OF THE SUBJECT MATTER INITIALLY MADE ME VERY SCEPTICAL OF EVEN STARTING THE BOOK. PAGE BY PAGE IT SEEMED I BECAME A LITTLE BIT MORE AWARE OF AN ILLNESS THAT FOR FAR TOO LONG HAS CARRIED SUCH AN AWFUL STIGMA. IT`S A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU REALISE THAT DEPRESSION HAS NO RESPECT FOR STATUS. THIS YOUNG MAN SEEMINGLY HAD EVERYTHING BEFORE HIS DEPRESSION FIRST CAME ON (A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WIFE, A FANTASTIC CAREER AHEAD OF HIM IN FOOTBALL, RECOGNISED BY HIS PEERS AS ONE OF HIS COUNTRY`S FINEST). THE BRAVERY OF HIS WIFE THROUGHOUT SHINES LIKE A BEACON. MANY LESSER PEOPLE WOULD HAVE FOLDED UNDER THE CONSTANT STRAIN THE ILLNESS THRUST UPON HER. ROBERT ENKE HIMSELF SHOWED TREMENDOUS COURAGE IN TRYING TO COMBAT THE ILLNESS WHICH ULTIMATELY PROVED TOO MUCH. I`VE ALWAYS BELIEVED SUICIDE TO BE A COWARDS WAY OUT BUT THE DARKNESS THAT MUST HAVE ENGULFED HIS MIND LEFT LITTLE ROOM FOR REASON. ANY BOOK THAT CAN CHANGE MY OUTLOOK(STUBBORN AS IT IS) ON A SUBJECT HAS GOT TO BE WORTH A LOOK . I CAN ONLY THANK THE AUTHOR WHO WROTE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL , SENSITIVE AND THOUGHT PROVOKING MASTERPIECE . IMMENSE

As interesting as your review is, I would have appreciated it far more had you turned the caps lock off.

I'd second the "unlocking the caps button" but a nice concise first review...
