Review:

“Moving and inspirational, this is the story of a real-life superman.”
Sunday Times 7/6/98

“Gripping and often profoundly moving listening.”
Independent 6/6/98

“Reeve is always rewarding, if sometimes hard listening”
Guardian 13/6/98

“A searingly honest picture of what it’s like to be quadriplegic. Christopher Reeve balances the richness of his family life against the grinding monotony of maintaining his body until technology might let him walk again. Perhaps his finest performance.”
New Scientist 13/6/98

From the Back Cover:

The whole world held its breath when Christopher Reeve struggled for life on Memorial Day, 1995. On the third jump of a riding competition, Reeve was thrown head first from his horse in an accident that broke his neck and left him unable to move or breathe.

In the years since then, Reeve has not only survived, he has fought for himself, for his family, and for the hundreds and thousands of people with spinal cord injuries around the world. And he has written 'Still Me', the heartbreaking, funny, courageous and hopeful story of his life, from his early days as an actor, through the adventure of filming 'Superman' on the streets of New York and how that movie made him a star, to his continuing heroic battle to rebuild his life.

Written with dignity and sensitivity, this is the determined, passionate story of one man, a gifted actor and star, and how he and his family came to grips with a devastating, unexplainable shock that fate can bring to any one of us.
