Although the book does talk of his accident, his prognosis and his rehabilitation, it's focus is more on his life and work supporting stem cell research, raising his children and with the support of his family finding joy and humor where others might wallow in despair.
Of course, although his wealth and his notoriety allowed him to get treatments others might not have access to, it did not take away the pain and fear and initial belief that his life was no longer worth living. In those dark moments right after he realized his fate, his wife asked him to give himself two years to rebuild his life before he contemplated ending it. What he did in those two years, and the years that followed is truly inspirational and worthy of a Superman.
This book is not a new one, and Christopher Reeve is no longer with us, but the lesson it teaches makes it a worthwhile selection for review. If you haven't read it yet (and I hadn't) then take a few hours and enrich your life.
