Product Description

Product Description

Fabrice Muamba: I'm Still Standing is one of the books of the year. A life-affirming tale of courage and triumph that will surprise, fascinate and ultimately inspire you.

THEY say that when you die, your life flashes before your eyes.
Fabrice Muamba has been there. He knows.
Muamba was the Bolton Wanderers player who collapsed during a televised FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur.
After receiving emergency treatment on the pitch from medical personnel – including a consultant cardiologist who was at the game as a fan – he was rushed to a coronary care unit at the London Chest Hospital.
Muamba’s heart stopped beating for 78 minutes. But amazingly he survived.
He made a remarkable recovery that has engrossed and enthralled both the footballing and wider world.
Although it is Muamba's cardiac arrest and his wonderful resurgence that has brought him into the public eye, the truth is that he had already lived a remarkable life prior to his collapse.
Born in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, Muamba was brought up surrounded by the terror of a civil war and without a father who was forced to flee to the UK in 1994 because of his links to unpopular President Mobutu Sese Seko.
Muamba was not reunited with his father until 1999 when he moved to London aged 11.
This schoolboy, who could not speak a word of English, then displayed the kind of strength and faith that would become his hallmark, achieving 10 GCSEs before swiftly rising to the top of the English game, firstly with Arsenal and Birmingham City before his final spell at Bolton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired, humbled, blessed 8 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback
From i recieved the book a day after its release i felt as though i was a day behind and needed to catch up with the rest of the world. Im not much of a big reader but have been following Mr Muambas story since the game at white heart lane i had to buy it and read it, which i had managed to do in a day. I knew this would be a book that would not only motivate me but set me up for the rest of my life and i was not disappointed.
It makes u see behind all the limelight of press into what Mr Muamba was actually going through. Forgive me if i am wrong but like everyone i put him in the category of a celebrity after his experience with life and death and i quickly learnt he was the opposite. Reading the book sligtly mirrored my partners life which brought a lot of things home and hope that God is in control.
Like the rest of the nation i have fallen in love with his story and i am inspired by not only him but his wife Shauna. I aspire to be a strong intelligent fearless woman as she is.
I would 150% recommend this book to anyone! Kids would learn a lot too minor the little swear words lol x. X

Everyone watched the events of what happened to Fabrice live on TV that day in March 2012. Religious or not, the world cried and prayed. This book has two stories intertwined - the young Fabrice escaping the conflict in the Congo at the age of 11 leaving his mother behind - the unfolding events leading up to his collapse. Football, education, faith, family, love, relationships - everything you want human beings to be towards each other - loving, caring and above all respectful! you will find in this book. Every person in it you want to hug for one reason or another, which ever football team you support - the world was on the side of Fabrice Muamba that day. Read this book - be inspired to learn CPR - love and respect each other and have faith!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 21 Feb 2013
By Stuart
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's rare that I would ever read a book by my own free-will. However, this story really caught my attention last year, so I thought it was worth a read.
I'm only 3-4 chapters deep, but already love it. Well written, and a great story. Truly inspiring.
Take it from someone who doesn't read, that this is worth every penny!
