Summary
A book about people facing difficult medical conditions who, driven by love, desperation and astonishing perseverance and inventiveness, take unusual steps to combat autoimmune arthritis, autism, intractable epilepsy, severe food allergies, ADHD, and including a woman with MS who, partly through her own inventive therapy, got out of a wheelchair. The people in this book find ways to get better. Why did they even think they could? Meadows writes about the findings of research on the mind and psychology of agency, in these stories of inspiring fighters who never let go of hope
