The author says; A memoir that falls into the non fiction / motivational genre. I suffer from a progressive, degenerative muscle condition called Frederich's Ataxia. I can no longer move independently. I speak with difficulty….but I haven't always been this way. Dissecting Wobbles tells the story of my life between then and now. It explores my thoughts, emotions and experiences of me losing my grip on movement. In doing so, I am hopeful that it also addresses a few universally relevant ideas around what it means to be alive, and to live a meaningful life.
“This is a spectacular book! Andrew takes readers on a sometimes dark and twisted, but often hilarious journey into his world of dealing with muscular dystrophy. The thoughts and experiences he shares are honest and bare without seeking sympathy. This book is perfect for any person with a physically disability as well as anyone seeking to learn more about what a disabled person goes through.”
Gerda Brown, General Manager. Muscular Dystrophy Foundation National Office South Africa
You're right - this one was hard-hitting, but beneath the turbulent emotions, we catch a real glimpse of humanity and perseverance. This is definitely a book that needed to be written as it reminds us of the tenacity of the human spirit. This is one of the strongest 'life is what you make it' messages I have come across in a long time. I love Andrew's honesty, his personality and most of all his spirit.
Kind regards, Maddy (editor)
