One day in 2002 the 50-year old body of former Pittsburgh Steeler and hall of famer Mike Webster was laid on a cold table in front of pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu. Webster's body looked to Omalu like the body of a much older man, and the circumstances of his behavior prior to his death were clouded in mystery. But when Omalu cut into Webster's brain, it appeared to be normal. Something didn't add up.

The story of CTE is well presented in this book. As a physician I appreciate the depth he took to prove the connection to repeated head trauma. As a mother of twin 12 yo boys who love football, I am sad that they won’t be able to enjoy this sport any longer. Luckily they haven’t played much. I will encourage other sports to get the benefits of playing with a team.
Thank you for a wonderful book!
