MEDIA REVIEWS
"A beautiful account of a tragic experience. Simon's courage, indefatigability, and pure humanity shine through every grueling step of his journey back from the rim of death. As he recounts each courageous and agonizing step, he shows us that, at the end of the day, healing is truly a reweaving of body, mind and spirit. Thank you, Simon, for sharing your arduous, light-filled path with us. You give us hope." --Daphne Rose Kingma, author, "Coming Apart: Why Relationships End" and "How to Live Through the Ending of Yours"
"Simon Lewis's vivid account of his recovery should be a guidebook for all disabled individuals and their families. His disciplines directly mirror the training of an athlete: 'Go into battle prepared to win.'" --Mike Utley, former Detroit Lion, president, Mike Utley Foundation
""Rise and Shine" reads like a medical thriller that speaks to the indomitable will to live in the face of grief, pain, debilitation and the indifference of the insurance companies that turn by turn conspire to undermine appropriate medical care and possible cures. This true story is a journal of the relentless interplay of hope and despair." --Michelle Phillips, The Mamas and The Papas
"A true survivor of catastrophic injury, Lewis opens a window into the many struggles, hardships and victories one encounters while attempting to navigate the health care system." --Jennifer French, executive director, Neurotech Network
"Simon Lewis reinforces the idea that a supportive family, and an expectation of recovery--even in small steps--can be powerful ingredients in a successful rehabilitation." --Greg Ayotte CBIS, director, consumer services, Brain Injury Association of America
"When faced with adversity we each must remember our potential and what we are capable of. Simon Lewis's inspiring account helps us to understand that hope is real and that survival behavior can lead you to exceed expectations." --Bernie Siegel, MD, author, "Love, Medicine and Miracles"
"One of the most fascinating stories of tragedy, loss, endurance, tenacity and eventually triumph I have ever read." --Howie Mandel, actor, comedian, host, and author
"It's difficult not to be moved by Lewis's story." --"Kirkus Reviews"
