“Let me be Frank” picks up Franks life story from the end of the last book it’s been 12 years since Franks last book and a lot has happened.
Frank’s new book is the truthful and definitive account of the care he received after he was sectioned twice in the space of six weeks in 2012. Frank speaks openly about the treatment he received in Basildon Hospital and St Andrew’s and the failures that he believes he suffered at the hands of doctors.
But Frank came through his illness, has rebuilt his life and has and restored the relationship with his family after they made the decision to call in doctors against his wishes.
Frank tells of the new fight he has now embarked on to try and help people with conditions like the one he suffers from. He also tells of the heartbreak of recently losing his mum, who was a tower of strength in the darkest days. Frank’s book also sees him reflect on having to say goodbye to two of the people who had the biggest impact on his career: his idol and Muhammed Ali and beloved friend Harry Carpenter.
Let Me Be Frank is also an opportunity for Frank to reflect on his remarkable boxing career – 2017 is 35 years on from the day he first stepped in the ring. So the book revisits some of the highlights of Frank’s career.
Frank also speaks about his belief that boxing needs to do more to support fighters who develop mental health problems in the ring – and reveals how he is in the process of setting up a foundation to help use non-contact sport to rescue people from their illnesses.
