5.0 von 5 Sternen obligatory literature 27. Februar 2003
Von Monika D.
Format:Taschenbuch
A stunning story that really causes a shiver down the spine!
By writing an autobiography ,christy brown was able to express his feelings,emotions and sorrows because he wasn't able to do so with his body,
He brilliantly "worded" his feelings by describing in detail how he managed to master his difficult life from his childhood on.
By learning how to write with his left foot he found a way out of his disabled body ,into to the outside world.Eventhoug he was limited in his physical abilities, he wasn't in his mental ones.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Nichts gutes 7. September 2013
Von Mellisoe
Format:Taschenbuch
Ich bin Super unzufrieden mit dem Buch "my left foot" da das Buch unbedruckte Seiten hatte. Jede zweite Seite war leer und somit fehlte mir über die Hälfte der Story! Und dafür habe ich fast 9€ bezahlt das geht echt überhaupt nicht!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen not bad though 27. Mai 2009
Von Heidi
Format:Taschenbuch
This autobiography is, of course, about the author's life but also about his hopes, dreams and all the difficulties he had to deal with his affliction. To my mind, Christy Brown is a fighter although some chapters make him look a bit manic-depressive. It's a peculiar and special story and definitely not a book for everyone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A TRIUMPHANT AND INSPIRATIONAL STORY... 18. März 2005
Von Lawyeraau
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the story of a young man who was born in Ireland in 1932, after a difficult birth and with a severe disability that the doctors of the time were unable to name. They urged his parents to disavow him, as he was, they believed, an imbecile with a severely spastic body. Moreover, his parents then had five other children, all healthy. Christy's mother, however, refused to institutionalize him, keeping him at home and treating him as she would her other children. It would not be until years later that she would learn that Christy's affliction was severe cerebral palsy.
Imprisoned in a world all his own and seeming without means to communicate, Christy, at the age of five, made an attempt that was to change his life forever. Rather than being imbecilic, Christy was actually highly intelligent. He took a piece of chalk with his left foot and, having captured the attention of his family, proceeded to scrawl on the floor a reasonable facsimile of the letter "A", astounding his loving family in the process.
By breaking the communications barrier, Christy demonstrated that he could learn and understand. From then on, his capacity for learning was prodigious. Who would have thought that within his severely contorted and convulsed body lay a razor sharp mind and a thirst for knowledge? Certainly not the medical community, which had been so willing to consign him to institutional living. Armed with his left foot, the only part of his body over which he seemed to have some control, Christy Brown would demonstrate to the world who he really was. He was, after all, not the imbecile that the medical community had originally thought but an intelligent and sentient human being.

This is Christy Brown's triumphant and inspirational story of his battle to learn to read, write, and paint, all with the aid of his left foot. It is an inspirational story of his quest for fulfillment. His yearning to be as others are is palpable, and his struggle for acceptance beyond the borders of his home and his physical limitations are well articulated.
