This a life story of not just overcoming obstacles and setbacks, but also of never being satisfied with what a life wrought. Relentless striving to achieve more, earn more, gain more respect, and more autonomy are the fires burning within Peter Talty. His path is unusual in that his risk taking sometimes results in disaster requiring arduous problem solving that is drawn from the many people he encounters along the way. Using the dual lenses of educator and occupational therapist he provides a model of how to succeed but also how to fail and then to rebound in surprising and spectacular ways.
