True Strength by Kevin Sorbo,
This review is from: True Strength (Hardcover)
I can recommend this book not only for fans of Kevin (Hercules) Sorbo but especially for anyone who needs inspiration on overcoming, in Kevins case, an illness or any set back. Kevin was at the peak of his fitness when he was struck down by 3 strokes in succession. He went from an on-screen demi-god to someone who had to learn to walk again and function with a loss of vision in both eyes as well as other side-effects. Thanks to a supportive partner (Sam Sorbo) and his faith in God, he overcame adversity. This is written from the heart, not in a pretentious hollywood movie star way, but like a down to earth regular guy telling you how he survived and beat the odds. It's also a love story of how his then fiance, now wife Sam, had to draw on her own strength to be strong for the man she loved. It has parts that make you laugh, make you stop and think, make you appreciate your health.. but most of all to have faith in yourself. The old saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" was never more fitting. An excellent book that you can read again and again.
