Deep Thinking A new installment from Dirk Hayhurst is promised to bring humor and heart, but I wasn't expecting so much humility and honesty too. He bares all in Bigger than the Game, by addressing the issues of injury, depression, and prescription abuse. By dealing with the dark subject matter of mental health and relay funny stories that depict the absurdity of his situations is what makes this book so enjoyable, and quite possibly, the best of the three. I love memoirs like his for their power to lift others out of hard-times with the notion that they are no alone. And by being so open to a national audience, there are simply endless connections for the reader to make with him. By being so transparent, he is proving more and more a role model for us all.

Ever wondered what professional athletes think about... especially when faced with an injury that might end a lifelong dream? Then you'll LOVE "Bigger Than The Game." I'm astounded by Dirk's courage in talking about physical injury, depression, and his journey through both. Congratulations to the author on a emotionally moving and inspiring story!

Don't listen to "Anonymous". If you've read Dirk's others books, you know his story. And he's a great author. And an amazing storyteller
