'For more than a decade Daryn Cresswell gave his all for the Sydney Swans. Over a career spanning 244 games he was smart, strong, unflinchingly brave and unwaveringly loyal.
'But when the curtain fell, things changed fast.
'Embroiled in a world of fast earns, chronic gambling and entangled in a web of lies, Cresswell lost everything - his wife, his money, friendships and, in the end, almost his life.
'In a very real way it was only jail that could save him.
'In Crezza, Daryn tells his story, one of hard-earned highs and self-inflicted lows.
'It's the story of a driven man who risked everything and lost.
'It's also the story of a man who clawed his way back.' (Publisher's blurb)
