Product Description

About the Author

In 1948 Richard von Hippel was born at the northeastern edge of East Africa's 'Mountains of the Moon' (Ruwenzori Mountains). In 1952, when he was old enough at four years of age, Richard's WWI Prussian Army officer Father (turned crocodile hunter, Safari Guide, tea planter) and his Ugandan mother (a Nurse) followed the European Émigré tradition of sending their children to school in England. Having tried his hand at many different occupations, in many different parts of England and Northern Europe Richard eventually discovered the Complementary Therapies. After an intense several years of training in several areas of both physical and mental/emotional/psychological therapies he joined the Board of a large Community Association that raised and spent over £36 million (GBP) regenerating three deprived housing estates in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK. It was during his time on the Board that he founded and ran a free Complementary Therapies clinic for the residents of the three deprived estates, and this was where he first began to treat a badly disabled stroke survivor by the name of Iris Ann Cullimore. As Iris continued to courageously battle her way through more adversity than many of us could ever imagine, or survive, she began to unfold her complete life story. As the story unfolded he found her to be so courageous and inspirational that he wrote it down for her and published it under the title NOT AGAIN: "My body's a write off but I'm all right."

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. This is a truly amazing story about the life of Iris, a courageous woman who must have the worst luck and yet the best luck all at the same time. Through disaster after disaster, Iris perseveres, and somehow manages to find the strength to carry on regardless, even laughing and having fun whenever she can. Her resilience is mind-boggling and one can only stand back in awe. I commend Iris for telling her incredible story and Richard von Hippel, for writing it down. I found it extremely inspirational.

What a book! - What a life! - And so much courage! - Here a quote from the book, when the book's protagonist and main author, Iris, reflected on what her life experience looked like at around the age of forty: "I'd lived for over forty years, been raped at eleven years of age, been forced into sex by my only fiancé, been raped and `battered' by two husbands, had three children, one affair, and I'd nearly died from a brain haemorrhage, but I'd never had a `normal' relationship, in the `normal' way, with a `normal' boyfriend." But that's not all the misery she experienced. There is an AWFUL LOT MORE.
This is an important book, a book many readers won't be able to put down. I was frequently torn between anger and admiration. There are descriptions of events and real life people that are disgusting and inexcusable, both the events and the people. More than once I would have loved to beat up one of Iris's boyfriends or husbands.
At the same time, this book shows the immense resilience a human being, in this case Iris, can master in the face of almost insurmountable adversity. This book gives hope to people who are struggling with bad relationships, illness and other kinds of hardship. I like the style in which the book was written. You can hear Iris talking - telling you her story. She is a remarkable woman, who despite all she went through never lost her subtle sense of humour. At times even for the people who made her life miserable, she is able to show understanding. And then of course there are the people who helped her and saved her life more than once. They are appropriately included. The only slightly unsatisfying aspect of this book is its ending. It is a somewhat abrupt ending, which would be okay for a novel, but not for a memoir, I thought.
