Christopher Reeve 'best known for his role as Clark Kent/Superman back in the 70's and 80's' created a masterpiece. He gave me strength through this wonderful book. He gave me hope, strengthening my faith in Christ Jesus. Like him, I've had to endure a lot of physical pain and surgical operations. He was very in depth, never leaving out a single detail. I smiled and I cried. It's just a beautiful story. He was a beautiful man, inside and out. Christopher Reeve will always be........ MY SUPERMAN!

Christopher Reeve was definitely an inspiration for those that are striving to overcome adversities and make a chandge in the world. His book, Nothing is Impossible, ought to be read by every person that believes that changes can be made though perseverance.

I bought this book and finsihed it in 2 days! I was hooked form the very beginning! This book is a great reminder to keep everything in life in perspective. It was very informative. I learned a lot about the stem cell research debate. Great for a rainy day!

This book is titled as if it's a kind of self-help guru read. Thankfully, it was no such fraud. Reeve is writing to tell the reader that; nothing is impossible, for me that is. He also reveals the fraud of scientology and the like. From someone in Hollywood it's not only mind boggling, but refreshing. The truth is that goodness and strength reside in you, you, and me. Keep faith to be sure. But don't let some tall, loud mouth fraud tell you to buy his tape for $19.99 to be inspired. Reeve certainly agrees with this assessment and it's good to know I'm not the only one. I liked Reeve after reading his only second book. His passion was himself. And that's what kept him alive ten years after that horrible accident in 1995. Hopefully the reader will also come to the conclusion.

In NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE, Christopher Reeve describes his life after becoming paralyzed from a fall off a horse. He awakened every morning, 'to emerge from the dreams in which I'm completely healthy and able to do anything and adjust to the reality of paralysis.' As Reeve learned to find humor in everyday life as a way to cope with his anger, his family, friends, and medical care-givers helped him maintain a regular program of physical exercise. Because he believed it was possible to recover his health and he never gave up a regular exercise program, he was able to shock his doctors one day by wiggling his fingers! While he has not yet freed himself from his wheelchair, the very fact that Reeve is regaining motor control below his neck provides hope to people everywhere. I was profoundly moved by NOTHING IS POSSIBLE, because Reeve so clearly conveys the importance of cultivating compassion; when we feel and respond to the needs of others, there is hope for us all. When Reeve writes, 'It is impossible to legislate compassion, yet that is what is needed most,' he explains how it is possible for people to rise above any challenge by helping one another. Reeve's message of hope and compassion is truly a restorative tonic for our times.

I thought this book was very good. It gives people like Mr. Reeve hope that what ever the doctor says doesn't always mean that your life is over. I also think the title fits very nicely becuase of what he is showing everyone. I gave it a four because the book kind of drifts away from the title with his religion and faith chapters, but all in all he did an excallent job on this book. I think I like it more than his 'Still me' book because this shows more of him.

I am so glad I picked up this book. Christopher Reeve talks about a little bit of everything. I especially enjoyed the section on parenting. I am going to put some of his words into practice in my own home. I was also amazed when he was discussing his therapy and recovery. I had no idea how much movement he had actually recovered after he was told he wouldn't be able to recover anything below the neck/shoulder area. This book also speaks about government funding for research, and the importance of that. I would suggest this book to anyone.

This book was not particularly well written. The positive aspect was the information provided about the broad amount of resources available to people who endure such a serious injury. The negative aspect was, I anticipated from the title that this book would be an inspiring read. I did not find that. Rather, I found some subject matters that I personally hold as very important in my life, were written about superficially. If you are looking for an inspiring read, look elsewhere.
