Rise Aboveby Greg Little
Rise Above is a detailed description of one man's journey of conquering adversity.You will read how the writer survived a near-fatal motor vehicle accident, which resulted in three skull fractures, a bruised brain, an eight-day coma and having to relearn how to walk and talk - made all the more challenging by a lingering speech impediment acquired in childhood.
Stuttering is an awful burden for a person to carry throughout life. Children can be cruel. The writer's utmost fear, speaking in public, would one day be an ally and allow him to present programs extensively throughout the United States.
This book is not about surviving adversity. It's about thriving beyond adversity.

I purchased Rise Above upon the recommendation of a friend. I will be purchasing additional copies to share with friends. I was captivated by Dr. Little's account of personal challenges and how he choose to "rise above" and succeed both personally and professionally. I find myself reviewing this almost daily. It is that motivating!!!
Rise Above is one of the best gifts that I have ever received! I received Dr. Greg Little's book as a gift. A good friend gave me the book as a present. She purchased it because she wanted to support someone from her hometown and she knew that I was into motivational books. It couldn't have come at a better time! I have a different perspective on how I view my own adversities. This book will help you see things in a different light! I plan on purchasing many copies to give as gifts. We all need as much inspiration as we can get! Thanks for sharing!!
RISE ABOVE has changed my perspective on how I view my own adversities! It has taught me that BECAUSE of them, I can not just "survive" through them, but USE them as a gift from God! To qoute Dr. Little; "Our weaknesses ARE our strengths taken to the extreme!"
Rise Above is an account of one man's adversities and how he overcame them. It is very motivating and entertaining. I laughed and cried while reading it and most importantly felt better after reading it than I did before. Dr. Little has a great outlook on life and shows us that you can continue to live and enjoy life no matter the difficulties you may face by rising above them instead of staying beneath them. I plan to purchase a copy of the book as a gift to my nephew who suffers from traumatic brain injury due to a car wreck so that he may see how another person was able to rise above the same problem. Dr. Little has done an excellant job of telling his story and I believe it can be an inspiration to anyone to Rise Above and conquer their adversities.
This was a very motivational and inspirational read. The writer shares his personal tragedies he experienced throughout his life and relates to the reader how he got through them...often times having to start from scratch. His sense of humor throughout the book is second to none. I am VERY pleased with my purchase and recommend it highly.
Dr. Greg Little has written the most encouraging, motivating book encompassing speech impediments, brain injuries, and the loss of a child. Whatever you are going through, this book will help you see the light at the end of the long, dark tunnel. I plan to purchase additional copies to give as gifts.
Highly recommended. The author brought out some very interesting and good points about life. After you read this book, you will understand why he chose this title and how well it compliments his story.
