When he was eight years old, David Schwarz saw his father killed in front of him in a domestic dispute gone wrong. Despite going on to become a star football player, playing 11 seasons with the Melbourne Football Club, the effect of this early shocking experience would shadow him throughout his successful sporting career. This is David Schwarz's honest and courageous story, told in full for the first time. Starting with the trauma of losing his father and riding the highs and lows of his football career, David tells the tale of his eventual undoing - a gambling addiction that saw him lose every dollar he'd ever earned and took him to the brink of personal and professional destruction. But it is also a tale of redemption, as David recounts the moment he turned his life around, and the path of recovery since. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Immortals: Football People and the Evolution of Australian Rules Football
Frost, Lionel,
ISBN: 9781740311045
john WJohn Wiley & Sons Australia Ltd, Brisbane, 2005. First Edition
 Softcover (with flaps) Softcover (with flaps). New Book/. First Edition. First impression. Size: Octavo 8vo (standard book size). 312 pages. Multiple copies available this title. Australian Rules Football fanatic and Melbourne academic Lionel Frost has written this fascinating history of the sport through the careers of some of the greats. He shows how AFL (Australian Football League) has developed from an amateur, local sport to the professional, national industry that it is today. It explores the ways in which the lives and careers of players, coaches and administrators were shaped by the times in which they lived, and how their responses to challenges and opportunities in turn shaped the development of the game. In a broader sense, it is a series of stories about Australians, and about life in Australia, that all Australians will be able to relate to. Based on new research, and covering all states in which Australian Rules is the major code, the book features the careers of people such as Norm and Len Smith, John Kennedy, Jack Oatey, through to modern ?gures such as Tim Watson and Jason Akermanis. All of the living subjects, and in many cases the families of those who are deceased, have co-operated fully in the research and provided unpublished source material such as letters and notebooks.
