Quentin Kenihan is living proof that superheroes don't need capes, just the right attitude. FOREWORD BY RAY MARTIN

When he was a kid, Quentin Kenihan loved Superman. Ironic, really. Quentin didn't need kryptonite to reveal his weakness - born with a rare bone disorder, osteogenesis imperfecta, his bones broke all on their own.

Being 43, Quentin has been a part of the fabric of my life and a quintessential part of Australia for as long as I can remember.

The life that I thought Quentin had and the one portrayed in the media were and are very, very different and it was very interesting to read this book, which was written with wit and insight.

This book was good, easy to read and thought provoking... We all need to reach for the stars and I am so glad that is what Quentin is doing.

Thank you for writing this book Quentin.

I quite like Quentin. He seems like a good guy and he's kept smiling through some pretty horrific episodes in his life. The problem is that he's making some claims in this book that are simply not true. Knowing that, I have to wonder about some of the other things he talks about and how much he's stretching the truth there as well.

(Audiobook) I grew up with Quentin watching him on TV. He had such spunk as a kid with a disability. This memoir shows the other side of him, the side that experienced a lot of pain in his life. No just the physical pain but mental anguish as well.

Excellent read. Heartbreaking and yet funny. Quentin is a character and a half.

I was once told that if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. In that circumstance I am unable to say anything about this book. Suffice to say, it is not my 2016 favourite.

Not having grown up in Australia I didn't know much about Quentin. It was great to read the inspirational story of his life, his struggles, his successes and his ongoing fight to stay alive and keep on going. Thank you for sharing your life with us, Quentin.
