"One of the most remarkable sports books ever written... A Life Too Short: The Tragedy of Robert Enke... stands as the definite work on mental illness in football" -- Sam Wallace * Daily Telegraph *
"Incredible... It's a stunning, fascinating and ultimately heartbreaking piece of work that has done so much to further the understanding between mental illness and sport. It is also a reminder that, for all the status and all the luxury which come with being a professional footballer, those lucky enough to make a career from the game are still human beings, too" -- Tom Hopkinson * People *
"An intensely moving book that transcends football" -- Raphael Honigstein, Guardian
"A tragic book, but a brilliant one. Reng's is one of the best sports books to have been published in years" * Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung *
"This is a powerful book which transcends football." * Sport Magazine *
