Editorial Reviews

Review

'It is a deeply affecting and at times shocking book... The Diving-Bell and the butterfly but with a happy ending' Sunday Times 17/7 'Deeply moving' Mail on Sunday ']Pistorius] is almost fealess in the way he confronts emotional reality' Catherine Deveney, Scotland on Sunday --Catherine Deveney, Scotland on Sunday

About the Author

Martin Pistorius was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1975. An unknown illness at the age of twelve left him wheelchair bound and unable to speak, and he spent fourteen years in institutions. In 2001 he learned to communicate via computer, make friends and change his life. In 2008 he met the love of his life, Joanna, and immigrated to the UK. In 2009 they married and in 2010 he started his own business. He describes himself a Geek with a wicked sense of humour and a love of technology. He loves animals, is a keen photographer, enjoys watching cricket, Formula 1 Grand Prix and films, listening to music, spending time with friends and, most of all, being with his wife.
