Longest Day, The

Calman, Matt

  0 Reviews

The 'longest day' is the name of the 243 kilometre one day event of New Zealand's Coast-to-Coast Multisport World Championships, but also an apt description of how journalist Matt Calman was experiencing his life. No longer choosing to use alcohol as a crutch, he was battling anxiety and depression. The Coast-to-Coast race became his goal for recovery and in this easy-to-read memoir he details just how gruelling the training is and the challenges of the event itself.

Open and honest, this story of hitting rock bottom and then reaching for the top, step by step with the support of friends and whanau, is a constructive and hopeful addition to understanding men’s mental health issues. [Larger font]
