Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh, cry and be genuinely inspired, this is it. Through a series of captivating, true stories and a unique fable,Steve Beriault chronicles his life from early childhood to the present. His optimism, tenacity, and courage do not allow diabetes to rule his life, but the drama and challenges that ensue because of it make this a book that is hard to put down. An extraordinary life - a great read!

By Mig H. Migirdicyan on April 15 2010
Format: Paperback
Although this book is about the life of a juvenile diabetic, it actually is about a "fighter". Once you read the book it becomes very clear that the author rejects all the roadblocks which have peppered his life almost at every turn. This book is a must read for those who are fortunate enough to lead a healthy life, so that they can appreciate what they have (even more), as well as for those who have been unfortunate enough to start life with a handicap right off the bat, so they can see that, with enough determination, one can overcome great majority of life's challenges.
Strongly recommend it.

My friend wrote this book and I am very aware of his personal journey with diabetes. My wife and I are mentioned in the book so that was a thrill. Stephen is a inspiration, despite his personal health challenges, he is positive and sets goals for himself. He is now a grandfather and is a very proud parent. I have known he and his wife for 35 years and so far he has beat the odds. The book is a great reflection of his life. Good reading for anyone who has diabetes or is a family member with it.

Steve Beriault March 19 2011
By dejah-thoris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I have ever read on Type 1 diabetes. Very few people share their life story on this condition, which is a shame. Mr. Beriault even offered to come speak to our group! Excellent for deep insights into how t1dm used to be managed before bg meters, and a wonderful adventure book about the wilds of Canada as well!

Inspiring tales March 9 2010
By D. Chang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Insightful tales to help me better understand the challenges diabetes impose on ordinary people. The wonderful ways Steve dealt with his illness with courage and grace. Inspired me to do better with my opportunities. Steve also paints a wonderful picture of the beautiful Canadian landscape and the helping people culture of Canada.
Full of Inspiration March 21 2010
By Dan Beriault - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is filled with tales of adventure from a type 1 diabetic's point of view. It follows the life of Steve Beriault from an early age, all the way to present time. This book will make you laugh, cry, and leave you amazed. For my wife and I, Steve's bike trip across Canada (4785 miles) in 56 days is one of the most inspirational stories I have ever read.
