Detailed item info

Synopsis
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. If we can conquer outer space, we can conquer inner space, too. Christopher Reeve has mastered the art of turning the impossible into the inevitable. In Nothing Is Impossible, the author of the bestselling autobiography Still Me shows that we are all capable of overcoming seemingly insurmountable hardships. He interweaves anecdotes from his own life with excerpts from speeches and interviews he's given and with evocative photos taken by his son Matthew. Reeve teaches us that for able-bodied people, paralysis is a choicea choice to live with self-doubt and a fear of taking risksand that it is not an acceptable one. Reeve knows from experience that the work of conquering inner space is hard and that it requires some sufferingafter all, nothing worth having is easy to get. He asks challenging questions about why it seems so difficultif not impossiblefor us to work together as a society. He steers the reader gently, offering his reflections and guidance but not the pat answers that often characterize inspirational works. Published on the eve of both his fiftieth birthday and the seventh anniversary of his spinal cord injury, Christopher Reeve's Nothing Is Impossible reminds us that life is not to be taken for granted but to be lived fully with zeal, curiosity, and gratitude. That is a powerful message in itself, but it is the messenger who gives it its full resonance.

Reviews
Praise forStill Me "A remarkable book . . . Reeve's autobiography is distinguished not only by the dignified candor with which he describes his utterly changed world but also by his emotional directness. . . . [Reeve] communicates so well that it's easy to forget that every word of Still Me has been wrested from a body in revolt against a mind clarified by adversity." -Entertainment Weekly "A decent human being with a stunning lack of ego . . . Through his honesty, dignity and clarity of purpose, Reeve has created an involving book and a meaningful life." -The New York Times Book Review "[Still Me] redefines the idea of hero. . . . In this detailed and well-written autobiography, Reeve proves that, in many ways, he has transcended previous accomplishments through his courage and character." -The Boston Globe "A story of enormous depth: honest, intelligent and compelling. I have rarely read anything as moving and would offer one small piece of advice should you be temptedread it in a room on your own so you won't feel ashamed of weeping, and keep a box of tissues and a stiff drink within reach at all times." -Sunday Times (London) "A memoir that's outspoken, wise, and tremendously moving . . . No doubt, Reeve is 'still me'but readers of his beautifully composed book will see that he is now also morethat through nearly unimaginable suffering and effort, he has transformed a charmed life into one blessed to be a true profile in courage." -Publishers Weekly
