"This book is not only very readable, but it is also filled with humorous and insightful comments about living with a severe handicap. Each chapter is only a couple of pages long so it is an easy book to pick up, read a bit for inspiration, and set aside to pick up later. I highly recommend this book for everyone who has wondered what it would be like to live with paralysis, for anyone who is a caregivers, and for anyone who is depressed because of a disability. The book has lots of useful info (i.e. how to pick out a van for the handicapped), lots of humor (itch is a four letter word), and lots of thoughts about living a full life despite physical disabilities. Read it and be inspired!"
