Description - Nothing Is Impossible by Christopher Reeve

Actor Christopher Reeve, paralysed in a riding accident in 1995, challenges readers not to accept limitations - those set by oneself or by others - but to harness our untapped resources. He has mastered the art of turning the impossible into the inevitable, and shows that we are all capable of overcoming seemingly insurmountable hardships. He interweaves anecdotes from his own life with speeches and interviews he has given 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. He 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. He also asks challenging questions about why it seems so difficult - if not impossible - for us to work together as a society. "Nothing is Impossible" reminds us that life is not to be taken for granted but to be lived fully with zeal, curiosity, and gratitude.
