He's our doctor so maybe we are a little biased. Still a good read about a man overcoming the many obstacles in his life

As a medical professional (RN) that continues to work full-time from my wheelchair, I found Falling to be particularly insightful and would highly recommend for readers with MS that are married and continue to pursue a career or a particular passion in life.
The way Clint handles his life with MS is described with obvious honesty, candor and humor. Maintaining his ambitious goals with distinct perseverance is the way I wish everyone with MS could view life, passion and their individual abilities, rather than disabilities. It is also a great love story about Clint and his wife, Ursula who experienced dramatically different upbringings. A love story that openly describes the love they share and the deep admiration and appreciation they have for each other.
I am looking forward to meeting them at a book signing in the very near future.

Format: Paperback
This is a story about Clint Pearson, a track star and mountain climber who takes on MS in the same competitive manner, treating it like a rival he is determined to conquer. He does it somewhat by not fully recognizing the MS and carrying on in life despite it with humor, ambitious goals, and an athlete's perseverance. It is also about Clint and his wife, Ursula, the contrasts of yin and yang, their dramatically different upbringings, and the love story of two people who despite their differences have a deep admiration and appreciation of one another. With warmth, humor, and honesty, the reader gets to know Clint and Ursula and can't help but feel they are two people you would want to have as friends.

I had tears in my eyes starting with the forward! Of course there was plenty of laughter as well. I know this is a memoir, but it reads like a fiction. The love shared by the two is evident in black and white on the printed page. You are truly missing something if you don't take some time out of your life and experience this book.

Thanks Clint and Ursh for sharing your life with us.
