Able by Dylan Alcott

Auto-biography by an Australian who has won Paralympic Golds in wheelchair basketball and also tennis, and has won the major opens as a wheelchair tennis player. Its very well written, and truly inspirational. His disability was caused by major surgery as a young child. His positivity and determination to strive to use his sporting prowess and fame to promote and secure equality of treatment for those with disabilities is nothing short of incredible. He was largely responsible, with another player and friend, in getting the major tennis tournaments to stage their wheelchair championships at the same time, and on the same courts, as the able bodied competitions. Well worth a read.
