Paperback

"A must-read" --Julie Dussliere, Chief of Paralympic Sport, U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee Nineteen people from across the globe, ranging in age from twenty to seventy-plus, tell their stories of living and thriving in diverse fields -- in sport, the arts, medicine, business and more. With refreshing frankness, they share their successes along with their struggles -- grit is the one characteristic they all have in common. These are not stories of people overcoming disability -- they're stories of people accommodating disability while pursuing their dreams. Pure Grit shines a light on boundless possibility whatever the individual challenge. "Pure Grit highlights the lived experience of remarkable individuals, who collectively demonstrate that growing up with a disability brings strength, perspective, and resilience." --Dr. Cheri Blauwet, Assistant Professor of PM&R, Harvard Medical School "An insightful collection of stories." --Dr. Christine Imms, Apex Australia Chair of Neurodevelopment and Disability, University of Melbourne "The stories in Pure Grit are a testament to human achievement no matter your ability. An extraordinary read." --Casey Wasserman, Chairperson, Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games
