About the Author
Bob Mortimer is a motivational speaker and evangelist. In his early twenties, Bob lost three limbs from electrocution after a car crash. Not allowing being 'de-feeted' to defeat him, he decided to make the most of his life. He married Darla and raised three children while establishing a respected non-profit organization. Through Bob Mortimer Motivational Ministries he has inspired audiences around the world. His Being Our Best seminar has been welcomed by corporations, schools, and community groups throughout the United States. Bob pedals a handcycle with his one arm for exercise and recreation. In 2008, he led his family across America on bicycles. Hope and Courage Across America, Bob's first book, chronicles the adventures of that journey.

Bob's cheerful honesty cracks me up. Why would a man with three missing limbs choose to ride a bike across America? And how in the world did he get his wife and family to do it with him? Bob's explanation is that he is "overly optimistic, impulsive, and has difficulty with identifying the impossible." Ha!
Bob has hope and courage in spades, and it was a total upper to read his remarkable story in this book.
