    I first knew of Joey Williams as a mercurial halfback for the South Sydney Rabbitohs Then after a couple of seasons he just disappeared.I next heard of him last year talking about his battle with mental illness, or as he terms it The Enemy Within He acknowledges his enemy within in this book, and even his Twitter handle is JoeWilliams_tew.But even if you had never heard of him, and detest sports of all types, this is a book worth reading an audio book worth listening to He tells of his ups and the inner demons that tore him down He doesn t blame other people, he knows that the fight is within.A very powerful book, and message.
