I'm glad I opted to listen to the audiobook. Hearing Reeve recount his twist-filled life added a new dimension to a story that is both sad and uplifting at the same time. Reeve touches on so many relevant topics. Struggles with the health insurance industry. The debate over stem cell research. Tips for improved parenting. Mini-lessons on the human nervous system. There are sections where I sensed that Reeve glossed over certain defining moments in his life. Still, "Nothing is Impossible" is both inspiring and informative. ( )

This book is about an incredible man's journey. One accident left him wheel chair bond for the rest of his life. Although he was living a different life and wanted to give up many times, he always strived for more. He never let go of "hope". Hope was all he had. Every day he struggled but persisted on becoming better. His accident didn't stop him from being the best he can be. He is an inspiration to all. He really is "superman". ( )

Christopher Reeves was an amazing man, and he has an amazing story to tell. I knew a bit about Christopher Reeve before I read this book and now I am just in awe of all that he worked for accomplished.

Reeves is quite candid in this book. He talks about the first days after his tragic equestrian acident, and how he considered ending his life after learning his prognosis. But Reeves with the support of his wife decides to press on, and he discovers there is still so much worth living for.

My favorite chapter was on parenthood and the challenges of parenting from a wheelchair. Reeves discovers that is many ways he is a better parent because now there is more dialogue.

This book is a short read, but you wil take away so much. This is a truly inspiring story of courage and hope! ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375507787, Hardcover)

A sequel of sorts to Reeve's bestselling memoir, Still Me, Nothing is Impossible is a concise, meditative companion to the earlier book. Each of its nine chapters is devoted to some aspect of successful living (humor, faith, hope) or addresses a major life issue (parenting, religion, recovery). Although Reeve draws on his experiences prior to his spinal chord injury in 1995, it's clear that his views on life have evolved dramatically in the seven years since. Clearly of most obvious value to those facing the challenges of physical paralysis, this book also serves as inspirational primer for otherwise able-bodied individuals who may be thwarted by mental rather than physical wounds. In additional to his personal message, Reeve is also a blunt proponent of medical insurance reform and government research funding, devoting a chapter to it here, as well as a significant portion of his nonprofit Web site, christopherreeve.org. --David Bombeck
