5.0 out of 5 stars And we think they have it all..., 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Life Too Short: The Tragedy of Robert Enke (Kindle Edition)
This award winning book explains what drove a top sportsman to kill himself at the age of 32.
Robert Enke was Germany's number 1 and had kept goal for leading European clubs like Benfica and Barcelona.
His friend, Ronald Reng, charts Robert's highs and his disastrous lows. An obsessive perfectionist Enke would beat himself up for days if he thought his mistakes had contributed to a defeat.
Reng movingly describes how Enke battled against depression - his story held particular resonance for me as a fellow sufferer - and how through it all his wife was there to give her loving support.
Ultimately,the light of death grew stronger than the light of life for Robert,clearly a charming, personable and hugely talented character, and he ended it all by stepping in front of a train. Sport made him a household name and a hero to tens of thousands but in the end his dedication to that sport killed him.
Inspiring, illuminating and heartbreakingly sad A Life Too Short is a must for anyone interested in understanding the demands that professional sport makes on the men and women who we think have it all.
