Publisher Description

The astonishing life story from one of Australia's most inspirational athletes.

Dylan Alcott OAM has never let his disability get in the way of what he wanted to achieve. His family treated him no differently to any other kid, and it was the best thing they could have done. Growing up, he always had a positive attitude to life, and when he discovered wheelchair basketball and tennis, he was always at the centre of the action.

Now the three-time Paralympic gold medallist, Order of Australia recipient, Grand Slam tennis champion and Logie winner combines elite sport with philanthropy and motivational speaking. But Dylan’s greatest passion is changing the way those with disabilities are perceived, and to inspire young people – whether they have disabilities or are able-bodied – to achieve their dreams. It’s a passion that drives him every day of his life.

In Able, Dylan shares his story. It’s the tale of someone who’s proud of who he is, who always sees the upside and never takes himself too seriously. As inspiring, honest and funny as its author, Able proves that for every one thing you can’t do, there are 10,000 other things that you can.

This is a refreshed cover edition.

Real Talk / good narrative

I really enjoyed Dylan’s story. Narration is also good by him, and you can get involved in the emotion and triumphs of the story.
