The truth is that professional sport is a breeding ground for addictive behavior.

Luke Sutton is a business owner and successful agent to sporting stars such as James Taylor, Nile Wilson and Sam Quek, but his life didn't always look so positive.

Back from the Edge reveals the huge ups and major downs that a professional career in sport can bring – and the mental health difficulties that can plague a sportsperson along the way. Luke knows this more than most. Brutally, but refreshingly honest, this no-frills autobiography of the former professional cricketer describes in detail the moment he hit rock bottom, how he got there, his roller coaster journey through rehab, and the important lessons he’s learnt since.

Throughout the book, Luke remains candid and reveals how his addictions affected his personal life, from his friends to family to his children. Luke Sutton: Back from the Edge is heart-wrenching. It's also thoroughly genuine, funny and utterly inspirational, and has allowed the former cricketer to speak about his mental health and to raise awareness of addiction in sport. Now a sports agent, he is perfectly placed to spot the warning signs in young stars, and to support them before they spiral into the same type of experiences he faced.
