With the support of family and friends, Scott Hollier not only embraces all that life has to offer, but makes sure to give back too. Outrunning the Night encourages people with disability to be true to ourselves and to make our own way. It's a positive, easy read that only seeks to share one person's story (mishaps and disappointments included) in the hope that others might take something away. A good read for parents and friends too - a real celebration of what people can achieve together.
A great memoir by a man living with a disability. He's not a famous paralympian or artist, but has a successful life with a wife and family, working and studying. It's inspiring not because of his vision impairment but because of his honesty and his effort to give back to the communities which have helped him along the way.
Recommended for anyone with a disability or family or friends of those with disabilities. It's good to hear from someone who knows about the ups and downs, and has thoughtfully considered how it affects the possibilities of life.
As the blurb said, the life of Dr Scott Hollier is not what you'd call typical. It is not typical, it is inspirational. Thank you Scott for sharing your life story so far. I encourage everyone, disability or not, to read this and understand that no matter what challenges you have in life, it can be celebrated and the possibilities are endless.
