Nothing is Impossible by Christopher Reeve
Book DescriptionIn "Nothing is Impossible: Reflections on a New Life", Christopher Reeve challenges readers not to accept limitations - those set by oneself or by others - but to harness our untapped resources. Christopher Reeve has mastered the art of turning the impossible into the inevitable. In "Nothing is Impossible" he shows that we are all capable of overcoming seemingly insurmountable hardships. He interweaves anecdotes from his own life with speeches and interviews he's given and with evocative photographs taken by his son, Matthew. Reeve teaches us that for able-bodied people, paralysis is a choice - a choice to live with self-doubt and a fear of taking risks - and that it is not an acceptable one. Christopher Reeve knows from experience that the work of conquering inner space is hard and that it inevitably requires some suffering - nothing worth having is easy to get, after all. He also asks challenging questions about why it seems so difficult - if not impossible - for us to work together as a society. But he never preaches; he steers the reader gently, reflecting and offering guidance, not the pat answers that often characterise works of inspiration. "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.

Waveney Valley, Paperback (June 2015)
The Waveney starts as a shallow stream between Lopham in Norfolk and Redgrave Fen in Suffolk. The counties are united by its waters which gather strength among marshland and meadows, medieval towns and villages, churches, manors and castles, finally surging into the Sea near Great Yarmouth. This book describes and illustrates this beautiful valley.
Still Me, Paperback (April 1999)» View all books by Christopher Reeve
Through his leading role in four "Superman" films, Christopher Reeve became very closely identified with the superhero. But his riding accident which left him paralysed from the neck down showed he wasn't superhuman. However, he refuses to resign himself to the life of a quadriplegic.
