Synopsis: Book by Connolly Kevin Michael
From the Publisher: All my life I've been an object of curiosity, the subject of a stare. But, while I have shouldered the stares and stories of others, the story of how I've managed to travel the world is uniquely my own. "Double Take" is my story, and it begins in many ways the day I was placed on prosthetic stilts at the age of eight. The stilts served no purpose other than to make me appear 'normal'. Tears streamed down my face as I gazed up at the doctors. That day I realized I had to let go over other people's idea of 'normal' and find my own path. So I ditched the legs and, eventually, started to use a skate board to get around. In an attempt to capture the moments of intense curiosity I experience on a daily basis, I traveled to 17 countries and took over 32,728 photographs of people staring at me. In Zurich, I raced down the Limmat River against a group of twenty Vikings. In Bosnia, I scrambled to collect my groceries after being side swiped by a car. In Malaysia, I got caught in torrential rainstorms and had to skate and paddle with one hand, while keeping my camera above the rising tide with the other.
