Triston D- I really liked this book! It's about a guy, that is a great athlete, and he gets shot, but even though he got shot, he still has a great positive attitude and still enjoyed life, even though he would be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Highly recommend!

This was a great book. It's about this star athlete right before his big game he got shot by his best friend. This completely changed his life and he tells all of these amazing events that happened throughout

This is a very inspiring book! Mike was shot at age 14. A .38 caliber bullet hit his chest, clipped his lung and lodged in his spine paralyzing him from the chest down. This is the story of how it affected him as a teenager and later. He was a positive thinker and a great athlete. He has 2 gold and 2 bronze medals. He accomplished much in his life, but just in a different way than he had planned. Any age person would love to read this book!

After our students went to state student council convention and mentioned Schlappi's story, it intrigued me as my father's cousin was recently paralyzed from a workplace shooting. I was definitely inspired by his story, and I will recommend the book to my dad's cousin and her family.

AWESOME book! One of the best I've read for the "self-motivation" category. I admit, this opinion may be skewed by the fact that I saw him in person at a conference where he was the keynote speaker. Still, I highly recommend it--and seeing him if possible.

Read this book aloud to my kids. We all enjoyed it. Very inspiring and motivational. I've had the pleasure of meeting this author in person and hearing him speak, and he is truly an amazing man.

I was lucky enough to meet Mike at a conference in Utah a couple years ago. Terrific guy! What a great outlook on life.
