Review Excerpts

Minneapolis Star Tribune - June 28, 2006
"[Sanford's] book is a beautifully written account of his story. It is sobering, with its revelations of just how unbearable human existence can become after such a physical trauma, yet reassuring, through its narrative of how one man can adapt and learn from his own experience what an entire medical establishment had told him not to believe."

Reader's Digest (Editors' Choice) – June 1, 2006
“Matthew Sanford was 13 when a car crash killed his father and sister and left him paralyzed from the chest down. In Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence, he recounts the inspiring tale of how, with enormous determination, he crafted a rich life that today includes a wife and a young son.”
