Head Games is a revealing book about America’s concussion crisis in sports. Chris Nowinski tells his remarkable story - how a former Ivy League football player and WWE wrestler fought the NFL and turned his post-concussion syndrome into a successful crusade that has made concussions one of the most important public health issues of our time. For the first time, Nowinski tells the insider story as to how concussions went from a joke to the front page, and reveals how a small group of people outmaneuvered powerful entrenched interests to expose a problem that will never again be called a silent epidemic.
The book offers eye-opening insights and cutting-edge science on head trauma from the nation’s leading medical experts and features professional athletes who’ve suffered career ending concussions like NHL All-Star Keith Primeau and Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist Cindy Parlow Cone. Most importantly, the book provides parents, coaches, athletes and administrators with a game plan for protecting their athletes from the potentially devastating and long-term effects of concussions.
