Reviews - What do customers think about ASCENT: how one quadriplegic fought for a full life and soared?

A remarkable book about a remarkable life  Jun 2, 2008
I am one of the few to have read the book after having met Bruce and Barbara and enjoyed their company and hospitality. At 75, he is still remarkable---and an excellent pilot of his van in which we were driven to lunch, then to view a hung exhibit of his stunning floral photographs, a few of which were reproduced in the book. But most importantly, Bruce is truly that kind of man of whom you can say, "Wheelchair? I hardly noticed!" And you will understand when you read the book; it's a marvelous autobiography that doesn't mince words and presents the challenges and successes as they happened. I couldn't put it down!
Ascent  Dec 15, 2007
ASCENT: how one quadriplegic fought for a full life and soared

It' inspiring and very well written. The photographs of the author's art and photography are an additional treat.
Inspirational  Nov 13, 2007
If ever there was a story of success against all the odds this is it. I found the book difficult to put down. Bruce's explanation of his treatment after the accident were heart-breaking, but his descriptions of soaring in his glider and his adventures in the African Bush were wonderfully captivating. He truly has achieved a number of things that able-bodied people cannot.
Compelling reading, and a rare insight into the life of a disabled person.
Strongly recommended.
Such inspiration  Aug 6, 2007
This book is a wonderful inspiration to anyone who is going thru a debilitating injury or illness. While reading Mr. McGhie's story and how he has overcome so many challenges, I can see the fight and determination that my child, who lost a limb to cancer and subsequently acquired additional medical issues from chemo medication, has gone thru and overcome in direct parallel to Bruce McGhie's struggles and successes. They both met and overcome their challenges and have achieved a full and wonderful lives. Bruce McGhie's experiences and talent for putting feelings into words made me feel every pain and every triumph he achieved. Thank you for your voice and talent.
Quietly Fierce Determination - Bravo !  Aug 1, 2007
Bruce reveals that his life is richly fulfilling. Markedly not "normal", he details both his emotional and physical adjustments to achieve great satisfaction in his family, professional, and personal lives. Focussed beyond his circumstances, he invites us all to live courageously.
