I read this book when it first came out. Many books I read and then forget, but this one made a deep impression. I love the double ententre of the title, "STILL ME." This is a true story of human love and courage that restores hope for the higher angels of our humanity.

One of the most enlightening, best books ever written about being a disabled person.
EVERYONE should read this book. Not only is it a book about Christopher Reeves and his amazing courage and strength but a view of what it's like from the perspective of a disabled person.
A MUST READ!

This book is about the life of Christopher Reeve. Reeve really goes into detail about his rehab from his injury, and his thoughts right after the accident. Pretty good book. I havent read his other books about his life, so I cant compare this one to those.

I really enjoyed reading this, not only to learn about Christopher Reeve and what happened to him, but to become more knowledgeable about spinal cord injuries and disabilities in general.

This book is an outstanding memoir of Christopher Reeve's life. Christopher became a quadriplegic in 1995 during a horse riding accident.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

The man is a true inspiration. He dealt with life on life's terms and made the most of it. He was a man of no excuses, and showed us all what you can accomplish with a positive attitude. I highly recommend this book.

Loved this book and I was never a Christopher Reeve fan. Was quite the page turner especially in the beginning. I just couldn't seem to put it down.

I enjoyed watching Christopher Reeve onstage ("Summer and Smoke)" and in the movies, (a favorite-"Somewhere In Time"). I don't know why I waited until now, several years after his death, to finally read his book, Still Me, written three years after he became a quadriplegic. Better late than never.

I knew of Reeve's pre-accident activism for the environment and of his saving the lives of 77 actors in Chile. And I knew of his post-accident activism for spinal cord injury research and health insurance reform. But after reading how difficult it was for him to accomplish his hard work while paralyzed from the second vertebrae down has increased my admiration for a man who died way too soon. It took three hours and three medical personnel every morning just to get started on the day. He knew his wealth allowed for him to have much better care than the average American. He worked on health care reform while beginning new endeavors at directing, writing, producing, and acting from a wheelchair with vent-assisted breathing, not to mention still being a great dad to his children. His wife Dana, who died two years after Christopher from nonsmokers lung cancer, taught us all about unconditional love. This book gave me insight into the daily courage of those with useless arms and legs trying to live a productive life. A worthwhile read.

The whole world held its breath when Christopher Reeve struggled for life on Memorial Day, 1995. On the third j ump of a riding competition, Reeve was thrown headfirst from his horse in an accident that broke his neck and left him unable to move or breath...........
