A Must Read! Aug 29, 2006
A 21st century 'Tuesdays with Morrie.' A young man with a thirst to speak and inspire others, ends up being the one inspired. When Tim first becomes Mike's aide, its a stable job until something else comes along. Little did he know the life lessons this young boy was going to teach him. Mike becomes Tim's friend and muse, and his passion for inspiring others is reignited as he shares this story with us.
A wonderful reminder to all of us not to take the simple things in life for granted and to enjoy every moment of breath we are given.
Inspirational, honest and Genuine! Aug 3, 2006
What can I say? This book made me laugh, cry, made me angry and most of all inspired me to look beyond the mundane attributes of a day and make every day count. I LOVED the honesty and genuine friendship between Tim and Mike and how they could learn from eachother and gain support in ways I wouldn't have thought possible! It's amazing to see the extent Tim went to just to see a smile on Mike's face---and ya know, I believe Mike went just as far to get a reaction from Tim at times! There's so much left to be said, and yet, Tim says it best: "No action is too small, when you believe in yourself, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!" Keep on Keeping On, Tim!! Thank you for sharing your story and I will anxiously await reading about the 1200 mile run!
Unbelievable- Read to feel good about life! Jul 23, 2006
In these uncertain times, Tim reminds us of the importance that each relationship and every effort can make. He sets the page on fire with raw feeling and emotion, leaving a piece of his heart in every chapter. In documenting his experiences, Tim goes far beyond providing Mike with friendship and dedication; he offers each of us the power to make a difference through love and faith. Well written and easy to read, the book leaves readers begging for a sequel about "the run." Bring it to the beach this summer or bring it on the airplane while traveling for business--either way, just make sure you bring it.
Mike's a great kid Jun 25, 2006
First off, I would like to thank Tim for writing this book. I have known Mike since first grade (I'm going into senior year of HS now), and people have always underestimated him, and never known what he's gone through. Now, this book shows what he, and millions of others go through every day. Tim is a great guy, and undoubtedly the greatest friend the Berkson twins will ever have.
Startling inspiration Oct 2, 2005
Tim tells about his amazing adventures with his hero, a young man who is hero to us all, Mike Berkson. Mike has Cerebral Palsy, but as you will find in this inspiring tale, he's anything but disabled. You'll truly be touched as you learn about Mike and Tim making their lives into an adventure! Read this book and you will find a deeper insight into yourself and humanity. Buy this book. You will be oh-so-glad you did!
