Very well written. Author follows the life of his brother, a star high school and college quarterback and successful businessman into the depths of dementia.  A series of concussions leads to the gradual loss of his mind to the effects of chronic traumatic encephalopathy.   The author documents the people that helped destroy his brother, and the friends and family that did all they could to comfort and protect him from the terrible consequences of brain injury.  An emotional ride you will not soon forget.
