  • This an awesome book. Reading tore at my heart strings how he was moving certain parts like fingers on the left hand and so much more to be stalled on the stem cell research all account of stupid politics and over zealous religious fanatics. I'm a Christian and I love Jesus and so much more , but I get what Christopher Reeve was saying I realize life begins at conception but it was unfertilized eggs there were nothing no embryo nothing just cells. And here's another thing religious fanatics don't taking consideration when woman gets pregnant about 50% will be fertilized eggs and the 80% aborts itself so what was wrong with doing something with unfertilized eggs.

  • Christopher Reeve played Superman in the movies. Then years later, a horseback accident left him paralysed, breathing with a respirator. Christopher Reeve played a superhero once again, this time in real life. With superhuman courage, he fought to live life fully, to recover as much use of his body as possible, to gain support for medical research that could help all people with neurological injuries and illnesses, and to continue to be a father to his three children.

    Although the medical research proceeded much more slowly than Christopher Reeve hoped, he played a key role in making sure that there was major research on spinal cord injuries, diagnosis, treatment immediately following the initial injury, long term rehabilitation, and even possible regeneration of damaged portions of the spinal cord itself. Political motives and religious beliefs interfered with funding of stem cell research, as did the early beliefs that not much recovery was possible with neurological injuries. But Christopher Reeve was fortunate to have several factors in his favor as he struggled to recover. He was therefore able to recover far more abilities than had previously been thought possible, document this recovery, and bring it to the attention of scientists, politicians, and the general public. It took a brave and determined man to fight against skeptics and pain and insurance companies for years to achieve this. That makes Christopher Reeve a real life superhero in my eyes.

  • This book offers some look into the reality of a quadriplegic's struggles to grasp normalcy in his new world. This favorite Superman of so many of us obviously worked friendly to help others with injuries that part him in a wheelchair in the first place. The sad part is that he never ( at least in this book)) found the saving grace of Jesus Christ which would have given him peace. He did amazing work for stem cell research, however and it's an excellent book.. Highly recommend!

  • The sample of the book made his voice sound somewhat mechanical. However, I was pleasantly surprised that he spoke quite well, with only a few moments of breaking to take a breath. His voice was very pleasant and gave insight into the lives of someone who possessed much wealth and fame, but had inner struggles like anyone else. It was interesting to see how much time and money he spent trying to become a Christian Scientist, Loving Relationships, and Unitarian, among other "Religions." The reason I gave it four stars, is because there was some backtracking and flashbacks, so a few times, it was confusing what timeframe he was talking about. Overall, you will find it an interesting read and I hope he has finally found all of the answers he was seeking in the next life, that he never found in this one.

  • I felt very optimistic about the author 's example from his own journey through a debilitating accident. I am facing simular adjustments and found new motivation to keep up my therapy and not give up.

  • The Sequel to the No.1 New York Times Best Seller Still Me (1998)! This book has nine chapters and revolves around Christopher Reeve's Physical Therapy, Advocacy and his Life Works which he proves to the whole world that He is The One and Only, Real, and True Superman of All Time in The Movies and in Real Life!!!
    Thanks Gamesters3!!!

  • The struggles Christopher Reeves went through after the accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down. His personal struggles to continue his life so much altered and his struggle for the scientific research and approval of the treatment that could offer hope to all the people paralyzed by accidents or by a crippling disease.

  • In his follow-up to "Still Me," Christoper Reeve brings his optimism that he WILL overcome his devastating cervical neck injury. While it is sad knowing that the injury ultimately cost him his life, Mr. Reeve's perspective is one of the most uplifting memoirs I've ever read. Being a huge fan, I feel blessed that he's left this document for us to continue to love and cherish his memory and how he made the world a better place for the short time he was in it.
