Synopsis: Now in its 3rd edition, Spinal Network: The Total Wheelchair Resource Book is as vibrant as ever with 586 pages of profiles, articles and resources on every topic of interest to wheelchair users. Subjects include health, coping, relationships, sexuality, parenthood, computers, sports, recreation, travel, personal assistance services, legal rights, financial strategies, employment, media images and much more.
From the Author: Imagine a big, beautiful, comprehensive resource book for people with disabilities: That's what we did back in 1988 for the first edition of Spinal Network. It was published on a shoestring and a prayer--an exercise in faith, hope and deficit financing.
The second edition was launched on more tangible grounds, but we still didn't know the true depth of the need for resources, role models and community connection.
In this, our third edition, we think we've found our voice. It's the voice of disability past, present and future, not anything we invented. Informed by hundreds of accomplished wheelers sharing their thousands of years of disability experience, Spinal Network is your key to quality of life.
You'll find stories about health and sexuality; about travel, sports and recreation; about selecting gear and dealing with bureaucracies. You'll find medical and rehab topics strongly covered, as well as the attitudes and the street smarts for taking control of your life.
You'll find inside information from people who know.
A constant theme in this book is that the best coaches for living with a disability are those who have already done it. That's why we've included so many engaging people with so many different answers to so many different questions.
The line between a tough break and a satisfying life may be as simple as knowing the full range of options. Disability does force hard choices on us, but there's no reason we have to make them in ignorance.
We hope this book makes your choices easier. We know you'll find a wealth of information.
And, who knows, somewhere in these pages you might find yourself. You might find that Spinal Network is your ticket not only to living well with a disability, but to enjoying the ride. --Barry Corbet
