Reviews

"Kevin Connolly has used an unusual physical circumstance to create a gripping work of art. This deeply affecting memoir will place him in the company of Jeanette Walls and Augusten Burroughs." -- Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants

"[A] charming memoir... Connolly recounts growing up a scrappy Montana kid--one who happened to be born without legs...[Double Take] makes for an empowering read." -- People

"A courageous, immensely rewarding chronicle expressed in arresting words and pictures." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Life's most successful survivors meet adversity head on, with an unflinching eye, candor and with humor. Kevin Connolly has such an eye and weaves a rich memoir from the gut about his amazing journey through life." -- Lee Woodruff, author of In an Instant

"Beautiful, revealing, and stimulating...[Connolly] is a good storyteller...whether describing his first high school wrestling match, the path from novice to champion skier or what it's like to travel around the world on a skateboard." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Touching and comedic, inspiring and telling...[Double Take] is a remarkable portrait of the human spirit." -- The Free Lance-Star Publishing Co

"[Double Take] reminds the reader that perspective is everything. It's an inspiring read about a human being who doesn't concern himself with what he has lost or never had. [Kevin Connolly] is a lucky man, sharing his bounty with us." -- Sacramento Book Review
