About the Author
Jeff Bauman was an ordinary twenty-seven year old, with a job, a girlfriend and a love of sports, when a bomb took both his legs near the Boston Marathon finish line. A famous photograph taken at the scene, and his vital role in identifying the bomber from his intensive care hospital bed, made him the face of the tragedy, but it is his determination, humor and positive attitude that has inspired millions. Jeff Bauman lives in the Boston suburb of Chelmsford, Massachusetts. www.jeffbaumanstrong.com. Bret Witter has co-authored six New York Times bestsellers. His books have been translated into more than thirty languages and have sold more than two million copies worldwide. He lives in Decatur, Georgia. www.bretwitter.com.

I remember that awful day in Boston. Watching it unfold in the news. I was so sick and angry at whoever had done this horrific act!
What an honor it must have been for everyone who met Jeff - even the baseball players, singers, etc. Yes - it took a village - but Jeff NEVER gave up.
There isn't any one of us who isn't now or hasn't faced some type of adversity. Read this book - and when those times come - think and act as strong as Jeff. THAT is what I intend to do.
I picked this for our book club and we all enjoyed it and lead to some great discussion. I tried to find out what Jeff is up to now since the publication of the book and only could find that he and Erin are divorced. We all agreed in our book club that was written on the wall. Guilt was not enough to make a marriage work. I would recommend this book. It is good for other people to feel the emotions, frustration, and fears of those involved in this type of tragedy.
As a Bostonian and someone who was volunteering at the 2013 marathon, I've always felt a connection. Bauman makes sure that this book serves as a tribute to all victims and their families and perfectly encapsulates how the city rallied around each other to drive out evil and make sure that love prevailed. Well done, highly recommended.
