He was born a congenital amputee, his arms ending at his elbows and his legs at his knees. But that didn’t stop Kyle Maynard from becoming a champion, on the wrestling mat and in his life.
No Excuses is the inspiring story of Kyle’s battle against the odds. You’ll learn about the family who supported him, the coach who trained him, and the faith that strengthened him to face the toughest fights.
"No Excuses will really pump you up. Kyle is the real deal . . . and is one of the most inspiring people I've ever met."
Praise for NO EXCUSES
--ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER "When I interviewed Kyle Maynard, he touched the hearts of more viewers than perhaps any other interview I've done. No Excuses is the book that Kyle Maynard fans, like me, have been waiting for. And let me tell you, it's terrific."
--LARRY KING "Significant achievement occurs for those who have the courage to overcome disappointment and setbacks to pursue their dreams. This is an inspirational book about the perseverance of the human spirit. Let Kyle inspire you!"
It's a simple book, so read it for just that. Kyle does not write with a maturity that comes with understanding how to express the emotions that drive him beyond just the raw, primordial impulse by which he is driven in his life to live with no excuses. And he doesn't allow us into his soul to understand how a man so young has learned to shut out doubt every day. At writing, he is still a youth who perhaps has not taken time yet to delve deep enough to put in writing his emotions.
It is a short, very quick read - large type with lovely photos. An easy 2-hour read. I recommend this book for grades 5-8.
But it's another thing for a man like Kyle to SHOW people that it's possible. He's served as an inspiration to at least 2 of my patients and their families, because they can see the possibilities of life as an adult, defining and projecting who you are as a man, rather than letting society tell you who you are supposed to be.
Excellent read. Highly recommended.
