“…in these pages there are lessons for all of us.” This sentence in the forward of Scott Harris’ book says it all, really. No matter your life experience or exposure to people with acquired brain injuries, the story of Scott’s accident and his courageous, inspiring recovery will teach you things about yourself and this shared life we all live that you’ll be thankful to know. The biggest take-away for me is a new outlook on how I will face adversity next time it strikes in my life. If it’s anything like the way Scott does, I’ll be a better person for it. Not only is this a life-affirming, though-provoking and moving read, it’s also entertaining. Scott’s writing style is effortless and his personality shines through on every page. The book reads like a documentary, allowing us into his vivid world – from the hospital ward to the rest of the world. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn something about the power of determination.

Scott's story is an impressive one. It's not just the accident, his rehabilitation, and the goals he sets for himself afterwards; it's also how he tells the story. He has a very natural writing style that really brings it all to life - you really get a good idea what he experienced. Most of all, his resilience shines through in every page; and it makes you question how you would respond if you were in his shoes. For me, the seeds that he planted kept me thinking about my own challenges long after I finished reading the book. Motivational, yes. But not of the cheesy You-Can-Do-It! kind. Read it to find new sources of energy.

As it is written in the foreword; ''This is Scott's story and in these pages there are lessons for us all.'' Even if we do not suffer a brain injury, we can benefit reading his book. Scott gives us lessons of courage and determination, and he also tells us to live our dreams. It is easy to relate to and very captivating. From one chapter to the next we keep wanting more. In the book we are following him on the road of readaptation meanwhile he is on a road trip arround the world. He wanted to be an inspiration instead of giving a recipe and in that way I think he succeeded. He gives us the will to get more out of our lives. Of course if you do have a brain injury I hope you receive all the support you nead from your family, friends and the medical staff, but nevertheless this book should give you tools to adapt to your new situation. Scott shows us his rebirth and gives us ways to realize ours. Michel Labrie
