|Totally inspirational Jun 21, 2008|
|The next time you think that life has dealt you a bad hand, you should pick up this story about Kyle Maynard, the congential amputee athlete. I found the story very inspirational and motivating. While I was hopeing that Kyle would talk more about other aspects of his life, like career, it was impressive reading about how he trained for football and wrestling. There is also the amazing amount of faith and caring from Kyle's friends and family. |
Next time that you get self-conscious over a blemish or do not feel like exercising, take a few minutes to flip through this book about an amazing human being.

|It is a great book. It proves that the mind can overcome any physical disablilities. |
|Inspirational, well written, has helped me with my patients Feb 2, 2008|
|Very great story. It's one thing to tell a kid that they can do anything they put their mind to when they're born with a body that's not "normal".|
But it's another thing for a man like Kyle to SHOW people that it's possible. He's served as an inspiration to at least 2 of my patients and their families, because they can see the possibilities of life as an adult, defining and projecting who you are as a man, rather than letting society tell you who you are supposed to be.
Excellent read. Highly recommended.
