Praise for NO EXCUSES

No Excuses will really pump you up. Kyle is the real deal . . . and is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met.”
—ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

“When I interviewed Kyle Maynard, he touched the hearts of more viewers than perhaps any other interview I’ve done. No Excuses is the book that Kyle Maynard fans, like me, have been waiting for. And let me tell you, it’s terrific.”
—LARRY KING

“Significant achievement occurs for those who have the courage to overcome disappointment and setbacks to pursue their dreams. This is an inspirational book about the perseverance of the human spirit. Let Kyle inspire you!”
—TROY AIKMAN

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Kyle Maynard was born in 1986 with a rare disorder called congenital amputation. He has no forearms, shortened legs, and stands only four feet tall. Yet Kyle has learned to live a full and active life. Besides dealing with everyday challenges, he is an excellent student, has impeccable handwriting, and can type fifty words a minute. A competitor to the core, Kyle was determined to succeed as an athlete. Through hard work, the support of his family, and a coach who designed new wrestling moves like the “jawbreaker” and “buzz saw,” Kyle became one of the top high school wrestlers in the state of Georgia. In 2005, he broke the world record in the modified bench press by lifting 360 pounds, three times his body weight. Kyle is the 2004 ESPY Award Winner (Best Athlete with a Disability) and a recipient of the President’s Award for the Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame. He is currently a student at the University of Georgia.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Story worthy of telling to keep us mindful we truly have no excuses 7. Februar 2009
Von I am C, Not X - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Five stars for a worthy story of one human among us but zero stars for the writing. Steel yourself for atrocious writing and then remind yourself throughout the book that you are reading it to learn of this young man's life and not for the writing -- and you may be able to appreciate and benefit from it. I apologize for my own shortcomings in having trouble getting over the writing - but I found it really horrendously bad - like a first draft from an 8th grader (again, I'm sorry to say this). I found myself distracted throughout by the lack of editing and the repetitive thoughts. I wish someone would have encouraged the young author to have an editor review the manuscript, because the story, nonetheless, is a worthwhile read.

It's a simple book, so read it for just that. Kyle does not write with a maturity that comes with understanding how to express the emotions that drive him beyond just the raw, primordial impulse by which he is driven in his life to live with no excuses. And he doesn't allow us into his soul to understand how a man so young has learned to shut out doubt every day. At writing, he is still a youth who perhaps has not taken time yet to delve deep enough to put in writing his emotions.

It is a short, very quick read - large type with lovely photos. An easy 2-hour read. I recommend this book for grades 5-8.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Living Your Choices 15. Dezember 2013
Von David Arthur - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It’s an easy read that will keep you fully engaged from chapter to chapter. However, don't read this book if you're intending to stay where you are in life. Once you see what Kyle has achieved, overcoming the challenges he has faced, the book is truly appropriately titled. And its message will hit home with you as it did me. We all are exactly where we’ve chosen to be. And so, in the end, the book is really not about Kyle at all. It’s really about all of us, and it’s time to choose differently … with no excuses!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 30. Januar 2012
Von CottageDweller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was really excited about this book. Kyle's story is very inspirational - not letting anything get in his way of achieving his goals. When I started reading, however, I became less and less enthralled. While the story is still impressive, the telling was lacking. The writing was somewhat simplistic, and the organization makes the story hard to follow. He jumps around chronologically, making it difficult to follow the progression of his struggles and triumphs. Some of his points are repeated many times in more or less the same language. In all, I only made it through about half the book before I lost interest in wading through for the few glimmers of inspiration buried deep down.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Admiration for "No Excuses" 29. Juni 2010
Von Topper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a fantastic read for anyone stuck the least bit in self pity. I am a cancer survivor and reading this book helped to put things in perspective. Painful realities like Neuropathy can become too large of a focus and hence a limitation. I feel much better and more in control of my life after reading this special book. Too often, people let things which can be overcome become a wall instead of a challenging hurdle.

For those of you who did not wrestle in High School this could be a long read. I encourage you to relate his love of wrestling for any passion you have felt in your life. This is an excellent book from a young man of few years and yet he has worked hard and gained a wealth of wisdom. I commend Kyle Maynard and his exceptional book. You will gain much in reading this book. Tad O. Patterson
