Let Me Be Frank (by Frank Bruno) visual synopsis by Dani Saveker
Frank Bruno’s book Let Me Frank is written with journalist Nick Owens and captures the real, honest and often harrowing journey that Frank experienced following his retirement from professional boxing. However, the book is incredibly positive and uplifting when you consider how, through courage and focus, Frank has been able to build an inspiring life despite mental health challenges. Whether the reader has or is struggling personally with mental health or has been impacted by those around them struggling, this book helps to understand the reality of it without judgement.
“I have experienced challenges with mental health personally as well as supporting people that have worked for me and within my family. I can’t praise this book enough for shining the light on what can be a dark and often misunderstood subject. Frank’s openness is inspirational as he shows how hope is such an important part of the process.
To deal with his own challenges PLUS being in the public eye must is something I find difficult to compute – so all I can say is ‘thank you Frank!’
One of my most humbling and joyous moments will forever be being able to personally present Frank with a framed copy of this visual synopsis – at a mental health conference run by Chimp Management. Not only is he a fantastic, strong, male role model but he is one of the most genuine humans I’ve ever met – and a true gentleman”
