Summary

Summary

At age nine, Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer, and by age 10, he'd lost his leg to the illness. But Sundquist never faltered in his dream to ski in the Paralympics, and in 2006 he achieved his goal in Turin, Italy. Just Don't Fall is the remarkable and honest story of Sundquist's determination and grit in the face of long odds and tough choices.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Inspiring. Courageous. Sometimes heartbreaking. The tough lesson [is] that less than a hundred percent is still all right.” John le Carré
“I didn’t want to put this book down. It was more than the amazing story—it was the honesty of a voice that spoke, without a whiff of melodrama, about loss and worry and determination.” Elizabeth Strout, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Olive Kitteridge
Just Don’t Fall is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read—not to mention poignant and funny. If I ever find myself wallowing in self-pity, I plan to reach for Josh Sundquist’s book.” A. J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of Drop Dead Healthy and The Year of Living Biblically
“Josh Sundquist has not only written an inspirational memoir about elegantly and deftly triumphing over adversity, but he has also written a fascinating and hilarious one…Incredible energy…Moving and deeply affecting.” Isabel Gillies, New York Times bestselling author of Happens Every Day
