Reviews

"Life-affirming. . . . A story about refusing to accept, or be defined by, defeat." --The New York Times Book Review

"An inspiration." --The Wall Street Journal

"Reads like a gripping thriller." --People "Outstanding. . . . A masterful memoir and powerful demonstration of what's possible when you don't give up your dream." --The Christian Science Monitor "What makes Nyad's story so remarkable, beyond the harrowing trials she faced at sea--unpredictable currents and weather, deadly sea animals--is the strength of a resolve that would not admit defeat and knew no boundaries. 'Whatever your Other Shore is, ' she writes, 'whatever you must do . . . you will find a way.' Inspiring reading for anyone who has ever dared to dream the impossible." --Kirkus Reviews "Fascinating. . . . Nyad's writing is clear and direct, with her grit and determination finally finding a way." --The Seattle Times

"Astonishing. . . . Her message to readers is that anyone who has a dream and perseveres can also be successful." --Houston Chronicle

"Exciting. . . . A life-affirming story." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A fascinating glimpse into her life as a talented and fiercely determined athlete. . . . [A] moving account." --Library Journal
