When Kent Bell was born on Valentine's Day in 1965, he was not expected to live even twenty-four hours. Now, forty-nine years later, he just keeps going and going. In Look Ma, No Hands, No Legs Either, he narrates his life story, beginning with being born without arms or legs.
In this memoir, Bell tells what it's like living and thriving with a disability. From his birth, to moving regularly with his military family, to attending school and college, to accomplishing more in life than an average person, he shares the ups and downs of almost fifty years. Look Ma, No Hands, No Legs Either details how Bell, a sports enthusiast, became a scorekeeper for many activities, from Little League to the pros, including being the first disabled person to be an official scorekeeper in the 2004 USA Olympic basketball event.
Bell's story shows how everyday he faces insurmountable obstacles to the most simple of activities. Through fortitude and perseverance he has achieved his dreams, and he has also been proactive in working on committees and task forces to change the laws for people with disabilities. With detail and emotion, Look Ma, No Hands, No Legs Either communicates Bell's determination of courage, passion, strength, endurance, integrity, and most of all, a positive attitude.
