Summary

Military hero and beloved Dancing with the Stars alum Noah Galloway shares his life story and how losing his arm and leg in combat forced him to relearn how to live - and live to the fullest.

Inspirational, humorous, and thought provoking, Noah Galloway's Living with No Excuses sheds light on his upbringing in rural Alabama, his military experience, and the battle he faced to overcome losing two limbs during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Noah's gripping story is a shining example that with laughter and the right amount of perspective, you can tackle anything. Whether it's overcoming injury, conquering the Dancing with the Stars ballroom, or taking the next steps forward in life with his young family, Noah demonstrates how to live life to the fullest, with no excuses.

Not what you expect but far better

Noah Galloway essentially has delivered a book that says " If your gonna like me like me for who I really am and not who you may think I am". This book is so interesting not because it's about his overcoming physical challenges but his honesty about his struggles as a man, husband, father and with his own personality. In the end its not so much about overcoming as coming to grips.

A bad ass with a heart!

It held my attention from the beginning to end. Simple(in language, not in content), honest, real, and relatable in the struggle of the author to overcome physical and emotional turmoil. The way in which Noah tells his life's experience opens a portal into his perfectly imperfect world...and his continued effort to bring the best into his and his family's lives. The best part of this book was hearing the author read his story. His emphasis, voice, and accent made the book that much more real and relatable.

Thanks for being a bad ass with a heart! Real men cry. I have always been a highly sensitive person and would get choked up at movies, commercials and several times during this book. As a child when I started to show the emotions I felt, I was told to, "get tough and suck it up". That life long lesson has torn me up in many ways not necessary to state here. At any rate, a studly man like yourself, showing emotion some how makes me feel better about getting dewey eyes on occasion.

Motivational

I first started following Noah on social media after his first men's health article. I was inspired by his story but did not know the dark times he faced. Hearing his story in his own words was awesome. Support Noah and buy this book and be inspired.

too much detale on very simple actions

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

some of it

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

the most interesting was the way he comforted the new states of he's disability
the least interesting was he's combat stories

What does Noah Galloway bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

that no matter what happens to the physical the straight of the spirit becomes more valuable

Could you see Living with No Excuses being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

could happen

Good Story Teller

I like Noah's voice so I enjoyed listening to the story. I'm not sure I'd particularly like him as a person though. I think he does good things more for recognition than from his heart. Also, I think his ego is out of control and he's careless with the hearts of others.
