"If I had to pick one word to describe Life on Wheels, it would be 'empowering.' Gary Karp has a unique talent for making even the most mundane details about access specifications, adaptive equipment and ergonomic design not only seem interesting, but also entertaining. And the vital information he provides in this book empowers people to get out and live. It's a must-have for all wheelchair-users. I didn't think Gary could improve on his excellent first edition, but somehow he has."--Candy Harrington, author of Barrier-Free Travel, founder of Emerging Horizons
"Life on Wheels is an invaluable and comprehensive resource. Whether someone is facing a recent spinal cord injury or still trying to understand a chronic injury, I would highly recommend this book."--Jeffrey S. Johns, MD, SCI Program Medical Director, Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital
"A very informative A-Z road map in regards to not just living but thriving with a disability. The chapters on rehabilitation, health, and the disability experience were invaluable at creating an awareness for many of the barriers and resources available for individuals newly diagnosed with disabilities."--Eli Gelardin, Executive Director, Marin Center for Independent Living
"Life on Wheels is a must-read for all wheelchair users, as well as their friends and family." --Disaboom " (Disaboom 20100503)
