Summary

A short, inspirational audiobook from Henry Fraser, a young quadriplegic motivational speaker and artist.

Henry Fraser was a 17-year-old sports enthusiast and senior prefect when he broke his spinal cord and was left paralysed from the shoulders down. Life as he knew it was over, and yet, through extraordinary determination and a positive attitude, he has forged a successful career as an inspirational speaker and an artist. He chose survival over defeat and transformed unimaginable difficulty into an opportunity to grow and inspire others.

This book combines his wisdom and insight into accepting life's challenges with positivity and hope and will resonate with anyone facing an obstacle, no matter how big or small. It includes Henry's thoughts on how to look at the right things and avoid the wrong things, looking for progress in whatever you do, and acknowledging and accepting the darkness when it comes. Right at the heart of Henry's inspiring philosophy is his belief that every day is a good day.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

What a truly inspirational young man!

This has to be the best book I have read/listened to in years. The courage undertaken by this young man and his family to overcome “the little big things” is a true inspiration to many! I wish you all the best on your journey and know that you are helping to fight the cause relating to people with disabilities. Congratulations on WHSmith book of the year!!

Must read book

Heart warming book about bravery and encouragement. Teaches you how to pick up your life when you hit the lowest point. If Henry did it then there is no excuse why you can't. Accept and adapt.
