Never Give Up: My Stroke, My Recovery, and My Return to the NFL is a memoir by Tedy Bruschi. It was released in August 2007 in Hardcover.

In this book the NFL linebacker Tedy Bruschi’s details his comeback from a stroke and return to the NFL. With a sassy candor, Bruschi recalls the morning of the stroke, his initial plans to retire, his rehabilitation, and his tense moments at home when he tried to convince his wife that he was ready to return to the NFL (earning himself a share of the Comeback Player of the Year Award and full ownership of the prestigious Ed Block Courage Award). Drawing from his detailed journal, Bruschi speaks candidly of meetings with the New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft. He talks about the encouragement he received from many teammates, such as Tom Brady, and he speaks of a few who wondered if his attempt to come back was merely a ruse to collect a paycheck. He remembers the six-week period when one of his three young sons would say, "Daddy, pick me up?" and he would have to respond, "I can't." And he shares the support and encouragement he’s given to other stroke victims. Tom Brady says of the book, "You might be coming to this book as a fan of Tedy's football skills and, don't get me wrong, gaining the insights of one of the best defenders in Patriots history is worth the price of admission, but that's just part of the story. There are a lot of reasons to look up to him, and I promise you will finish this book with an admiration for him on a much deeper level."

The foreword is written by Tom Brady.
