Someone Like Me: An Unlikely Story of Challenge and Triumph Over Cerebral Palsy
. By John W. Quinn. History Publishing, 2010.
This inspiring memoir is U.S. Naval Officer, John W. Quinn’s, account of living with and overcoming the perceived limitations of cerebral palsy. Quinn was motivated to tell his story after realizing that, although there are countless manuals describing the types and causes of CP, there were few, if any, relatable materials written by adults coping with this disability. As he recounts the many challenges he faced and overcame, Quinn provides his readers with valuable insight about how, with determination, any dream can be realized regardless of the notion of set boundaries that others may have. It is an excellent read not only for those living with a disability, but for anyone who has ever questioned if a goal was within reach.
A copy of this book can be checked out from the Paralysis Resource Center’s library. Please see the online catalog and borrowing instructions.
