Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Crawford is a member of the United States Professional Tennis Association who lacks hands, has only three fingers, is missing one leg, and had to have half the other leg amputated to accommodate walking and running prostheses. The story begins with his parents' shocked acceptance of their imperfect baby; continues with Roger's struggles to walk, to dress himself and accomplish various physical tasks, to gain social acceptance, to perfect his athletic talents; and culminates in his marriage and public speaking career. The book reads well and is hopeful, cheerful, and credible. An inspiring, courageous autobiography.
