really liked it

This was a truly touching and moving account of a horrible tragedy and an inspirational woman. I can be a little slow early on but once the book hits its stride, I didn't want to put it down. It provided eye-opening insight into the medical science of the injury, rehab and available treatment options. It also provided a very interesting inside look into NASA and the space shuttle program. And of course, it was a facinating look at the House of Representatives, the country's political landscape and the danger and pointlessness of political rhetoric, extreme views and politicians unable to reach across the aisle.

Above all, though, this is a story of courage and determination and more than once it brought tears to my eyes.
