"No Storm Lasts Forever" is not a book about the AED project. This is a collection of journal writings by Dr. Terry Gordon during a very difficult time in his life. In 2009 his son Tyler was involved in a car accident and suffered a major spinal cord injury that left him a quadriplegic. In this book Dr. Terry Gordon allows the reader into his world shortly before and after this accident.
I must be honest, the interview was interesting but I was not yet considering reading the book. I am the primary caregiver for my father who suffers from Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and he is 100% bedridden. Last month I was not ready to go on Dr. Gordon's emotional journey with him, because I felt that my own journey was enough for me. The universe however had other plans for me and the book continued to cross my path for a few more days after the interview. Then the time came for me to choose my first book to review for Hay House and you guessed it, "No Storm Lasts Forever" was one of the selections presented to me.Read more ›
Three-fourths of the way into the book, however, I still wasn’t clear exactly what Dr. Gordon’ message was.
Everyone—with the exception of the author and at times his son—is depicted as perfect and loving.
Having just two down-to-earth human beings in a book just doesn’t feel realistic for me.
Maybe everyone in his life really is as charitable and flawless and he describes, but I find it hard to open up to his ideas when I can’t relate to his experiences.
His prose is sufficiently decent to go unnoticed until the end of the book, when it gets distractingly sloppy. Repeated words in the same paragraph and even in the same sentence got old fast. Surprising, especially for a traditionally published, international bestselling book.
That said, I was grateful I’d taken the time to read to the very end.
It wasn’t until that final chapter that it hit me and I got his powerful, humbling message.
The sappy sweetness and lousy prose was suddenly forgotten.
His positive, almost annoyingly tolerant and loving attitude towards life lead me to expect a very different conclusion.
Dr. Gordon’s message is not the sum of a bunch of aphorisms and quotes intertwined with life experiences, though at first, it might appear that way. NO STORM LASTS FOREVER runs far deeper than that.
It’s raw, honest, and powerful.
His constant optimism and faith, though at times tiring and downright depressing, left me feeling deeply humbled and appreciative.
I have no idea if NO STORM LASTS FOREVER will affect you as it did me, but I can say that this book could make for a portal to gratitude and insight if you are open to it.
