Review

Buy this book. In your honor I will match the author's donation to the Himalayan Cataract Project.

"Michael's book is an inspiration for living life to its fullest, pushing you rhorizons higher and fulfilling a potential at first you would never have thought possible. For sports enthusiasts itis full of unique insights from his years as a team physician for the best athletes in the country. It is full of quotes from noted athletes such as when writing about Wilbur Wood's knuckleball he quotes Bill Veeck asserting, 'There are two theories on how to hit a knuckleball, but unfortunately, neither of them works.' And catcher Bob Uecker's answer to how to catch a knuckleball,'Wait until it stops rolling, then go pick it up.'

"But for those like my wife Mollie, who is the first Inspired Teacher Michael writes about and whose reply to anyone who tried to discuss sports with her was, 'I wouldn't look out the window if they were playing in my back yard.' it is full of other life lessons. As Michael writes, 'Mollie not only pushed us to work harder, she also changed our horizons, our awareness of who we might become. We could feel our intellectual and emotional capacities expanding.' He also generously sprinkles amusing quotes to illustrate his points such as, 'Never become too impressed with yourself, because the size of your funeral depends on the weather.'

"As an added reason to buy the book, Michael is donating all the profits from this book as he has his other books to the Himalayan Cataract Project charity, and in his honor, Mollie's and yours, I will match that contribution up to $10,000. I hope after reading the book you will want to contribute more as well.HCP has restored sight to over 900,000 people at no cost to the patients--Talk about raising horizons and helping people achieve potential they never thought possible."

-- Tom Broussard

About the Author

Michael S. Lewis is a physician, photographer and author.

Michael Lewis is an orthopedic surgeon at the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute. He has been Chief of Staff at NorthShore University HealthSystem, Skokie Hospital. He also was named best teacher of the year at Rush University Medical Center. He has also been an orthopedic consultant to the Chicago White Sox baseball team, the Chicago Wolves hockey team, and the Chicago Bulls basketball team, with whom he earned two championship rings. Dr. Lewis has been honored to treat numerous world-class athletes from several continents, including All-Star professional basketball and baseball players and Olympic medal winners. Being an avid tennis player, who has successfully competed at the national level in his age group, he understands how important active participation in their chosen activities is to his patients.

Photographer:

Michael Lewis started taking photographs more than forty years ago when he was stationed in the United Kingdom as an orthopedic surgeon in the United States Air Force. At that time he was able to travel throughout Europe, as well as East Africa, Nepal and India. Since then his passion for photography has grown exponentially.

Michael is honored that his images have been published in a number of books and magazines, including the Field Museum of Natural History Bulletin and Nature Photographer. During a one man show of his in a Chicago-area gallery, people reported that his work struck a deep chord in them, which led to the publication of One World: A View of Seven Continents. His photographs have since been shown in several galleries and exhibitions, including Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts; the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California; the Chicago Cultural Center in Chicago, Illinois; and Children&;s Hospital of Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts.
