Sport’s Uncomfortable Truth

The definitive account of sport’s concussion crisis, how its ‘dirty secret’ was finally made public and what rugby union must now do to save itself.

‘Sam Peters has fought a truly magnificent campaign on concussion in rugby . . . sport will be safer because of it.’ STEPHEN JONES

By recounting the untold story of the most influential sports campaign in British newspaper history, which turned concussion in professional rugby from a niche issue into front and back page news, Concussed poses the questions all sports lovers need answering as evidence grows linking sports-related concussions to premature deaths and dementia.

Expanding his research from rugby to football, NFL and other contact sports, Sam Peters brings an unparalleled breadth of experience, depth of knowledge and journalistic rigour to a subject he has written about and campaigned over for a decade.

Now sport’s ‘dirty secret’ is out in the open, Peters asks: how can rugby and other sports save themselves from the vested interests which threaten their very existence
