Christopher Reeve imparts a lifetime of wisdom in this unabridged collection of his thoughts, personal philosophies, triumphs, and challenges. His skill as an actor lends itself beautifully to reading his own prose, and he gives a stellar performance. One of the side effects of his accident, beyond paralysis, is his reliance on a ventilator 24 hours a day. The pumping of the ventilator is a little distracting at first, and the inflections in his voice are slightly irregular due to the workings of the machine, but those factors make his body of work that much more amazing. Reeve speaks in detail about a broad spectrum of topics including his injury and recovery, issues with health insurance, parenting, religion, personal character, and perseverance. His solid writing, heartfelt and humorous performance, and zest for life make for a great little package. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
