'Henry Fraser is one of the most remarkable people I've ever met' J.K. Rowling

'What a story of transformation, inner power and inspiration' Jonny Wilkinson 

The memoir of the year by Henry Fraser, motivational speaker and mouth artist with a foreword by J.K. Rowling.

Being challenged in life is inevitable, but being defeated is optional...
Henry Fraser was 17 years old when a tragic accident severely crushed his spinal cord. Paralysed from the shoulders down, he has conquered unimaginable difficulty to embrace life and a new way of living. Through challenging adversity, he has found the opportunity to grow and inspire others.
This book combines his wisdom and insight into finding the gifts in life's challenges, and will resonate with anyone facing an obstacle, no matter how big or small. It includes Henry's thoughts on how to look at the right things and avoid the wrong, finding progress in whatever you do, and acknowledging and accepting the darkness when it comes. Right at the heart of Henry's inspiring philosophy is his belief that every day is a good day.

My Thoughts:

The Little Big Things is the inspirational memoir by Henry Fraser. Inspirational is a word that is often bandied about but in this case it is perfectly suited. Henry Fraser is the epitome of the word. 

On a holiday with friends when he was 17 a single moment changed his life. An accident in the sea left him permanently and completely paralysed. At this point most people would have given up but not Henry Fraser he decided that life was going to be different, not worse, not impossible, just different. It took him some time and lots of rehabilitation and of course dark days. 

The Little Big Things is his candid and non sugar coated account of a reality that most of us could only imagine. It could have been dark, depressing and bleak but it isn't. It is littered with hope and a determination that is admirable. 

Henry Fraser has shown that with a sheer will that anything is possible, now an incredibly talented artist through the medium of mouth painting and a motivational speaker. A high achiever who doesn't rest on his laurels. 

The Little Big Things is about how a tragic accident can shape your life but not define or confine it, and that a persons attitude is key in the ability to live a meaningful and positive life. 

So much respect and admiration for this book and this author.
