  • Nancy Mairs has given me a whole new perspective on living. My partner is disabled, though her limitation do not approach Nancy's in severity. But her perspective, living, loving, thriving in a world that is alternately indifferent and hostile to your plight is eye opening and refreshing. Thank you Nancy.

  • A fine read – of all the books I've read since being disabled, Nancy Mairs is by far the most intelligent and well spoken. Perhaps that's not fair to put authors in competition with each other, but she is now my favorite. A must read… I have ordered one of her other books already. Thank you for your service this Mairs, and keep on writing!

  • this book makes you think. Challenges you to meet your thoughts on disabled persons. The author is a college professor who is confined to a wheel chair as a result of a chronic progressive neurologic illness. Makes you think.

  • I never had the 29 years of abled bodiness the author speaks about before she contacted MS - I've been severly crippled for five plus decades......she writes a good book, but again like most highly educated authors, people found in the in the communications arts, she overwhelms us with "dictionary words."

    Dear author, in your next book, or a revised edition of this book, please allow us to put our thesaurus' away. Common literates would get more out of your books if you wrote without the imposing words.

    I've accused other authors, who it is obvious, to have written like they wish to impress their peers at the university level. But you need not impress anyone but yourself, because your teaching the handicapped along with the "ables" that our world has meaning and purpose, is impressive enough.

    Pardon my grammatical errors.........but it takes me a long time to type........and so I normally say forget it to rewriting.

    The book is well worth the money.

  • i like the author's wry attitude and way of writing. I like her observations and I can relate to her experiences. She is agood writer too.

  • I've always been a fan of Mairs's clear-eyed view of herself and the world. I think I've read parts of this before. I hope she is still writing.

  • Perfect

  • One of the most widely read books on the experience of disability. The book is full of humor and wisdom.
