Although the book and DVD are about Mike's accident and wheelchair basketball, they are helpful to anyone who is struggling with challenges.  They are about responding and reacting to the many changes we face in life.

Mike often thinks about the chunk of lead that changed his life three decades ago. Had the bullet's trajectory been an inch different in one direction he might be leading a normal life; an inch in another direction and he'd be dead.

“Now,” he presses, “What is your problem? What do you have to deal with today – or every day?  Do you have something lodged in you – maybe not your spine, but perhaps your heart – or your mind – that causes you pain and makes you feel paralyzed in one way or another?”
