‘I’ve been to hell and I’m back. If you’re in that same place, then I understand what you’re going through . . . Hang on to hope.’

All Blacks Don’t Cry is the remarkable story of hope and healing from well-known mental health campaigner and legendary All Black, Sir John Kirwan.

While ‘JK’ is now famous for sharing his experiences with depression, there was a time when he suffered alone.

One of the most devastating wingers New Zealand, and world, rugby had ever seen, he was a prominent and revered figure at the dawn of the professional age, who seemed to live a charmed life.

But nobody knew that, behind closed doors, JK was living a life of torment. Afflicted with depression for many years – including those as a high-profile sportsman – Kirwan was able to survive by reaching out, seeking help from those closest to him.

‘May be the most useful book ever written by a New Zealand rugby player.’
— Philip Matthews, Weekend Press
‘An inspirational read . . . I would recommend it for GP and patient alike.’
