perseverance, loyalty and survival under conditions that most of us could not handle. Get the book. It's a quick read and one that you most certainly will enjoy and share with others.
As a long time listener and fan, I was literally saddened when John made the announcement that he would be hanging up his headphones for good. It was (and still is) strange hearing someone else give the traffic report.
I was happy to get my hands on this book. I was not aware, until he wrote this book, that he suffered from cerebral palsy. I figured he had a bum leg from an injury or accident.
Reading the stories of what he went through growing up, and becoming the man that he is today was both amusing and empowering.
As I told the author, I'm a sucker for a good story. And this book holds it's own solely based upon the anecdotes and stories from the local stations over the years.
But in addition to those stories shared about growing up and working in the local market, John really bares it all. He takes us on a tour of the good times, but also is not afraid to show us the worst times as well.
I was entertained by his "retirement project", and would recommend to anyone who has ever listened to the radio in Philly.
Why Not? Conquering The Road Less Traveled by John Brown with Donna Brown is about the journey of a life that’s had its ups and downs, and of growing up disabled in a non-disabled world. It begins with the author’s entry into the world at three in the morning, a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Recounting his memories of hospital, loving people, dear friends and his school days in general, he mentions the fun and the difficulties of life. Growing up with other kids staring, laughing and calling names, as well as his experiences with marijuana and hash are mentioned. His dreams resonate throughout the book; dreams of becoming a DJ, and his entry into a career that was to last more than forty years as a radio broadcaster.
Why Not? Conquering The Road Less Traveled by John Brown with Donna Brown is an inspiring book. How John meets the challenges that are his constant companions, and how he has to overcome those in every step he takes, unlike the normal ones amongst us, make that victory even sweeter. The perseverance and dedication shown by John in fulfilling his ambition is an example to all. This book thus has the potential to be a great motivator for all kinds of people, including those with a disability. As the author mentions in the book: "My hope is that after reading this book, whether you’re disabled or not, that when life throws at you all kinds of challenges, you meet them head on the best you can.”
