When I first ordered the book, I was very curious about the "tone" of the book. I knew the story would be amazing, but was very interested in the story-telling itself. I was blown away at how much I laughed during the book, perhaps maybe when I shouldn't have been laughing. Josh has taken an imperfect situation and turned it into an inspiration for the masses. The story flowed, and gave us an inside and true look at the rigors of war, and the battles that veterans face every day. Although Josh still faces some troubles, his life is a testament to the true nature of Faith.

ONE STEP AT A TIME; A YOUNG MARINE'S STORY OF COURAGE, HOPE, AND A NEW LIFE IN THE NFL tells of a soldier who lost both of his legs in Iraq and two of his fellow marines - and who went on to find faith, personal courage, and a new life. This autobiography follows his life from his enlistment and active duty to his extensive rehabilitation and job as a community spokesman for the Indianapolis Colts. A fine, inspirational story, this is a pick for spiritual and general collections alike.

Format: Hardcover
Though I don't usually read non-fiction, this one I received from the publishing company and I was glad to get it. The main reason was because of the co-author, Mark Tabb. Mark used to be the minister at our little church years ago. He was interested in writing and it wasn't long before he was bringing pieces over to share and I'd give him some writing tips. Since that time, he's moved on and has written 20 books. Feeling as though I gave him a bit of a shove in the beginning, I've followed his career.

Now on to <em><strong>One Step at a Time</strong></em>.

Josh Bleill became a Marine and served in Fallujah, Iraq. The book tells about his early life, his basic training, and what it was like in Iraq. On October 15, 2006, an IED tore through the Humvee he was riding in and killed two fellow marines and injured Bleill and his best friend. He woke up in the hospital where he learned he'd lost both of his legs. The book deals with his physical healing as well as the more difficult trial of what to do next with his life--and how to do it.

Needless to say, this is a heart wrenching tale but also uplifting to see how this young man faced nearly unsurmontable challenges and managed to build and exciting new life.

I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Josh Bleill is a unique person with a hopeful attitude and an amazing outlook on life. This book will make you laugh, cry and, most importantly, it will inspire you.

I had the privilege of knowing Josh during his "Disney days" (p. 187). Even then, his giving personality and fun-hearted spirit was visible and quite contagious. I, like so many others, watched his recovery progress with hope and optimism. I'm thrilled he is now sharing his story with the world!

This is a wonderful book and a great stocking-stuffer, graduation gift, birthday present or for anyone who likes to be inspired. This book truly encompasses the meaning behind the Marine motto 'Adapt and Overcome.'

Josh sums it up best, when he wrote... "Any time I started feeling sorry for myself, I remembered that no matter how bad I thought I had it, others struggled with far more than I ever will. It reminded me to be thankful for what I had and to give to those who were less fortunate."

Congrats Josh! Keep doing what you do!

If this book does not inspire you to do something different with your life, you are either a veteran who has returned and is already making a difference in a new way, or you may need to check yourself for a pulse. Very inspiring, removes any thought that being in the reserves is just way to get an extra check. It has changed my perspective on those who have returned regardless of whether there are any physical signs of injury. God bless them all!

I love this book. Great story and told very well.
I like the candid comments throughout.
Anyone who has dealt with recovery from surgery or other ailments can read this book and be greatly encouraged.
Also, some good info about PTSD.
