Format: Hardcover
I knew JR back at Syracuse -- we shared some of the same friends -- and was amazed at how he could get around by himself. After reading this book, now I know more about him and his inspiring story. A 3-foot-9 congenial amputee, he was born without forearms, hands and thighs (putting it simply). The most revealing parts of the book were the struggles his parents, sister, and especially he has had accepting his condition. Able-bodied people like me have a difficult time imagining what it's been like to overcome what he's had to, and his story makes me thankful for all the physical normalities I have. For disabled people, he's a fantastic example of the attitude one needs to never give up and overcome whatever obstacles one faces, physically and especially emotionally. Today, JR is a happily married man and father of three leading what seems to be perfectly normal life as a salesman. All the credit to him. (You can Google him and his story for some video clips, and there's a documentary that goes along with the book.)

Get Off Your Knees is the most inspiring book I have ever read. I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis from my jaw to my toes since the age of 5. I stand 5'1" due to the high daily doses of prednisone I had to take the fight the disease. I have had 4 hips, 4 knees and 2 shoulders replaced and been hospitalized about 40 times. John's book reflects so many of the same feelings that I have experienced that it is uncanny. If I were to write a book much of what John's words would be exactly what I would write. I consider this book a must read for every able bodied and disabled person.

Throughout life, we all encounter people who are different. What we don't always take the time to do is consider what the journey has been like for them. John gives a frank, honest narrative of his experienced and what he learned along the way to becoming the person he is today. I have met John several times, and I am always struck by his genuine caring, his incredible insight, and his ability to listen. Everyone should read this book. You will be a better person in the end.
