Beyond the Bear by Dan Bigley

Beyond the Bear is a book that adults or young people with dyslexia should read.  When they think life is tough, this guys life will put things into perspective.  A lot of it reminded me of the strategies that dyslexic students discover, test and use in their academic careers.

Here is my review on this book on Amazon:

I want to carry cases of these books around and hand them out to people who are negative and complain about their lives that are NOT hard.  This book is an easy to read, heart warming lesson on how to live your life - with humility, humor and love.  A nurse who worked with Dan shortly after the attack called him an inspiration -- she had no idea how truly inspirational he would become in the years following the mauling.  Thank you to Dan for telling this compelling and moving story.
