About the Author

Christopher Reeve has established a reputation as one of America's leading actors, and since he was paralysed in an equestrian competition in 1995, he has put a human face on spinal cord injury. Reeve is chairman of the board of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation (CRPF) and vice chairman of the National Organisation on Disability and lobbies vigorously for healthcare reform and funding of research. He is the author of the bestselling book Still Me and lives in upstate New York with his wife, Dana, and their children. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

First Sentence
WHEN I MADE THOSE COMMENTS IN 2001, IT WAS no longer difficult for me to say to anyone that you have to believe in your worth as a person. But in the intensive care unit at the University of Virginia on June 1, 1995, I had no such belief. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
Nothing is Impossible picks up where Still Me left off. Christopher Reeve has passed a milestone - his 50th birthday - by which time he claimed he'd be walking again. He's not, but he is one step closer to that becoming a reality. This 2nd installment is told in the same down-to-earth manner as the 1st, but with a difference; Still Me focused a lot on his past, this time he focuses a great deal more on the future - not just for himself, but for everyone in the world who has suffered a spinal injury.
Reeve is an extraordinary man, whose courage, dignity & wonderful sense of humour shine through in his writing style which is warm & friendly. He honestly makes the reader feel like Reeve has been a personal friend for years as he invites you to share in his trials & tribulations, his triumphs, & his first faltering steps back towards a life where he isn't dependent on a wheelchair. He writes from the heart & I, for one, really do hope he walks again - if anyone has the sheer willpower to do it, it's him, & noone deserves it more than he.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 Jan 2008
Format: Hardcover
'Nothing Is Impossible' is an inspiring collection of short essays by Christopher Reeve. They cover topics from faith, healing and advocacy to parenting. They are all written in his matter of fact and completely compelling style and you come away from this book uplifted and in awe of his attitude to life. He has such a strong message for those in a similar situation or not. His son provides superb photography to begin each chapter and they compliment the overall feel of the book perfectly. Reeve writes honestly and candidly and this book is the perfect companion to 'Still Me'. A highly enjoyable and inspirational read. Well worth a read.

13 of 16 people found the following review helpful By taking a rest HALL OF FAME on 18 Nov 2002
Format: Hardcover
"Nothing Is Impossible", is a brief but dense work that goes far beyond the physical experiences of Mr. Reeve. I admire the man as I do not believe that many people in his circumstances would have been able to fight against the odds, the accepted, "medical facts", and the stupidity of government and the insurance companies as he has. He is in the 8th year of his battles, and if Winston Churchill were alive today, I believe he would hold Mr. Reeve in the highest esteem as an example of what never giving in, no matter what the odds are, represents.
Christopher Reeve readily states that he has had access to equipment that others should have, but do not, either because of his celebrity, or because he was able to financially buy what he needed when faced with what should be criminal negligence by his insurance companies. It is not my place to suggest otherwise, but I do not believe he would have continued to garner the support of medical researchers, and the use of their equipment if he had not shown an unstoppable determination to use what they offered, and push the equipment, himself, and the inventors to the limits of what was once believed to be impregnable boundaries.
I am not using hyperbole. Christopher Reeve has taken back more control of his body than had ever been thought possible or documented. He has done so through pure determination, guts, or pig-headed stubbornness, you choose the phrase, this man will not quit. The Bunny that, "is still going", would crumple next to this guy. Even if he does not walk again, and I will not yet bet against him, when someone finally does walk, after having the same injury, they better look in his direction.
