Pressestimmen"Frank Bruno has a special place in the hearts of the British public...This cannot have been an easy book to write, but the result is just right: always entertaining, uplifting and touching. It leaves the reader hoping that life has no more uppercuts to deliver to Big Frank." Daily Telegraph "Outstanding ... The story of Bruno's ongoing battle to rejoin those of us fortunate enough to have escaped mental health problems is sheerly inspirational" -- Ian Wooldridge Daily Mail "The old Frank is back, talking about his experience with humour and wry insight" -- Richard Madeley Daily Express "Nice one, Frank" Sunday Times "Frank Bruno's journey through mental breakdown to recovery has inspired many who before now have been afraid to face their mental illness and accept they need help. By writing about it so powerfully, Frank has shown that he is not only a courageous boxer but also a heroic fighter." -- Marjorie Wallace, Chief Executive For The Mental Health Charity Sane
