Graham Thorpe's achievements on the pitch have often contrasted wildly with his personal problems away from cricket, where drink and depression have often combined to send him spiralling off the rails. With painful candour and often unexpected humour, Thorpe dissects his career in cricket and the inner recesses of his private life—the impact of his bitter divorce, the suicidal depression that afflicted him in his darkest hours, the reasons why he needed to 'save himself' by withdrawing from past England tours, and his fresh outlook in life with a new partner after confronting his own failings and past troubles.
