Reviews

"Life-affirming. . . . A story about refusing to accept, or be defined by, defeat." --The New York Times Book Review

"An inspiration." --The Wall Street Journal

"Reads like a gripping thriller." --People "Outstanding. . . . A masterful memoir and powerful demonstration of what's possible when you don't give up your dream." --The Christian Science Monitor "What makes Nyad's story so remarkable, beyond the harrowing trials she faced at sea--unpredictable currents and weather, deadly sea animals--is the strength of a resolve that would not admit defeat and knew no boundaries.
