Lengthening The Shadow
Continuing ill-health and countless surgeries sent Auckland business man Dave Burt spiralling down into the depths of despair and hopelessness. Something had to change. With a mate he enrolled for a ten week 'ultimate body transformation' regime at the local gym.
This thoughtful, insightful book is the remarkable story of how, with a wonderful woman at his side and the right support, a Kiwi bloke fought back. This ten-week diary will make you laugh and cry, but above all it will provide a rare insight to those struggling with depression.
"I know the pain at the gym is nowhere near as bad as the pain of depression...so I suck up the workout pain and push myself that bit harder."
