Abstract:

What is it about the human spirit that enables people to overcome great personal disasters, and move on to help others? How do you cope when you are born with cerebral palsy or spina bifida, or paralysed as the result of an accident or contract a terminal disease and go blind? George Bryant has compiled the stories of ordinary kiwis who have struggled against the odds and not just survived but overcome. He examines the "undaunted human spirit" and what motivates people to triumph over their trials ... This book is unique. It will inspire you. You will identify in some way with the stories you read. You will find practical ways of dealing with life's traumas. And you will wonder at the amazing resilience of the human spirit."--Back cover.
