AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'After a near-fatal accident in 1988 left him paraplegic, John Maclean refused to sit back and let the world go by. He established a set of goals during his 4-month recuperation period, and this is the story of how he achieved them - and what he discovered about himself along the way.

'The story of a sportsman, an achiever and a compelling public speaker, Sucking the Marrow Out of Life is as moving, inspiring, funny and joyful as John himself.' (From the publisher's website.)
