About this title

Synopsis:

Hillary Clinton said that Find a Way would stay with her through the general election: "When you're facing big challenges in your life, you can think about Diana Nyad getting attacked by the lethal sting of box jellyfishes. And nearly anything else seems doable in comparison."

When Diana Nyad arrived on the shore of Key West after fifty-three hours of grueling swimming across an epic ocean, she not only set a world record--becoming the first person to swim the shark-infested waters between Cuba and Florida with no cage for protection--she also succeeded in fulfilling a dream she first chased at age twenty-eight and at long last achieved when she was sixty-four.

Now, in a riveting memoir, Diana shares a spirited account of what it takes to face one's fears, engage one's passions, and never ever give up. For no matter what life may throw at you, or how many times you may have experienced defeat, it is always possible--as long as you commit to living life to the nth degree, no regrets--to "find a way."

Review:

"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. 'Whatever your Other Shore is, ' she writes, 'whatever you must do . . . you will find a way.' Inspiring reading for anyone who has ever dared to dream the impossible." --Kirkus Reviews

"Fascinating. . . . Nyad's writing is clear and direct, with her grit and determination finally finding a way." --The Seattle Times

"Astonishing. . . . Her message to readers is that anyone who has a dream and perseveres can also be successful." --Houston Chronicle

"Exciting. . . . A life-affirming story." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Nyad fiercely owns this story. . . . [She] also envelops those friends, family, and colleagues who helped her along the way, and any readers who would take heart from it." --Booklist (starred review)

"A fascinating glimpse into her life as a talented and fiercely determined athlete. . . . [A] moving account." --Library Journal
