Book – Arash Recovery

Reblogged fromArash Recovery:

I could not be more thrilled, excited, proud (and relieved) to announce the publish of my book, “Little Big Steps – A Life-Changing Injury and the Inspirational Journey to Overcome the Odds.”

I’ve been working on it for almost three years and I have to credit all of you, readers of my blog and supporters of my recovery, for giving me the inspiration and motivation to take on this project.

If it weren’t for all the feedback and interest that I received about some of my early blog posts, I would not have known to dig into these stories, expand and explore the depth in each of them, and understand that I could actually be capable of turning them into a larger story. But here I am, a couple years later and with a book that I think can be interesting to all people, not just those dealing with a traumatic or life-changing event or adversity in their lives. Although the story of my injury and ensuing recovery is very unique to me, in writing this book I have selected the moments, perspectives, and experiences from my journey that are likely the most informative and relevant to readers.

So let this be my shameless plug. I ain’t no JK Rowling or Malcolm Gladwell, but with a strong wave of support and early sales of the book, especially in these initial days, I can make myself known to the bookselling gods, so please check it out! All the info and links to buy are on my book page. 

It’s available in print and all e-book formats (Kindle, Nook, Kobo, etc.) and for you listener/readers, the audiobook will be ready in just a few days. If you have enjoyed my writing and blog posts at any point, then the book is for you! Or maybe for a friend or family member? At the very least, an ornamental piece?

Thank you for all your support and for helping me make this happen.

Little Big Steps is my memoir detailing the pivotal moments, interactions, and breakthroughs in the first two years following my injury. Each chapter explores the experiences, challenges, and discoveries that have inspired me to work towards achieving what I was told was impossible.

SYNOPSIS – After thirty years of a healthy, rewarding and exciting life, I wake up in a hospital bed unable to move. The neurosurgeon leans down and breaks the news: You won’t regain any function in your body and you will never walk again. My medical insurance sends me home, discontinues my care, and tells me to “adapt to my new life.”

Little Big Steps is the story of the pivotal moments, interactions, and breakthroughs following the injury that turned my life upside down. Each chapter explores the experiences, challenges, and discoveries that have inspired me to work towards those accomplishments I was told were impossible. There are moments of immense frustration and grief, and moments of surreal hilariousness and unparalleled joy as I remain on the path to get back on my feet. The story culminates with proof that motivation, determination, and unwavering commitment can lead to incredible achievements.

About the Author

Arash is an entrepreneur, athlete, motivational speaker, and writer with an award-winning blog detailing his continuing recovery from a traumatic spinal cord injury he suffered. Featured in Forbes, Al Jazeera, ABC News, and TEDx, he has shared his inspirational story with a number of audiences including Silicon Valley CEOs, universities, corporate executives, and conferences. He collaborates regularly with companies developing exo-skeleton robotic suits that aim to replace wheelchairs and allow paralyzed people to walk. In 2015, he co-founded No Limits Collaborative, a non-profit aimed at helping people with neurological conditions to access exercise, physical therapy and improved quality of life. No Limits has partnered with UC Berkeley to train students and staff with disabilities and they have also encouraged people of all abilities to challenge themselves and participate in triathlons and physical accomplishments.

As a personal goal within his larger objective of walking, he trained and completed a 5-mile swim around a mountain lake to raise money for his charity. Arash has also established a regularly occurring standup comedy show that raises funds for people with spinal cord injuries. A Bay Area native, Arash credits his California upbringing for his love of the outdoors and nature, activities he still cherishes as he continues to travel, explore and enjoy new experiences.
