    1. Saul s story is home for me as my fiance is currently recovering from a traumatic brain injury This book gave me hope and helped confirm that others go through the same phases of recovery Love, bravery, determination and sheer will are powerful forces Be thankful for what you have and never label anyone beyond hope


    2. This book is good generally if your a cyclist and have an interest in people with head injuries Or you know or follow Saul Raisin.If you re me, then you pretty much read everything about cycling I can get my hands on I am interested in head trauma because a kid on my football team, Brad Bohrer, obtained a head injury similar to Saul Raisin s well, worse actually and has really affected me.So for me, reading this book was truly meaningful because of my interest in Brad Bohrer s injury It was real [...]


    3. Reading about catastrophic accidents isn t easy As a former healthcare professional, I saw many young people with brain injuries of varying degrees, their family and friends devastated from the situation I watched some die, be taken off life support for organ donation, and some struggle to regain their former life It wasn t easy then and reliving those kinds of events through this book wasn t easy either Sadly, I also had a friend who survived a bike accident and sustained severe brain trauma I [...]


    4. Saul Raisin s story is truly inspiring I m a sucker for the amazing athlete comes back from a trauma illness story Saul wrote this with Dave Shields Dave wrote the first half, about the accident and Saul s stay in hospitals in France and the States It s my opinion that he should have written the whole book I had a really hard time getting through the second half, which Saul wrote I was impressed by the story and amazed that he could recover so fully from such a trauma I m glad I read it.


    5. A tough book to read, for me, since I had a similar accident hit by a car instead of racing I had many of the same injuries my wife sister went through much of what Saul s parents did I feel It helped me understand a lot of what I went through even though I don t remember big chunks of time It has also put into perspective my wife s sacrifice pain I m riding again but not on the road This book has inspired me to work even harder to get better.


    6. Raisin Hell This is the incredible story of Saul Raisin who lapsed into a coma after a horrific crash in a bike race in 2006 Everyone who followed this story from the beginning assumed that even in the best case scenario Saul would never race again, and in the worst case he would die As told to Dave Shields, one of the best bike racing authors out there.I would recommend this for fans only.


    7. Checked it out from the library once, never had a chance to read it the time I live within an hour from Saul s hometown and have met him a couple times at cycling events His story is tragic, and from what I understand, there needs to be an epilogue to the book to note that as of 2007, he not been allowed to race as a pro and may not ever.


    8. I was actually surprised by how moving, insightful, and funny this book was, especially the second part in which Saul shares the trials and victories of his rehab at Shepherds and adjusting to life again I feel like I understand a little bit of what someone going through this feels like.
