Publisher's Summary

How a shark attack survivor beat the odds.

Improvise. Adapt. Overcome. These three words - the mantra of the Australian army - resonated with Paul de Gelder the first time he heard them.

Paul chased adventure wherever he could find it, from his wild ride as a hoodlum teen and his drug- and alcohol-fuelled stint working in a strip club to hauling his way up to the elite echelons of the defence forces. But trouble hunted him down in the form of a brutal shark in February 2009.

Paul lost two limbs, and his career as a daredevil navy clearance diver was flung into jeopardy. Drawing on everything his eventful life had taught him, Paul left nothing to chance in his recovery. He fought through excruciating pain, smashing challenge after challenge and amazing the medical staff with his will to succeed. His inspiring story takes 'never say die' to a whole new level.

Wonderful story!

Paul is one of the most robust people on the planet. After trying to find his life's purpose he joins the military and ultimately gets attacked by a shark. As a result, he loses his arm and leg. he didn't let that stop him from living a fulfilling life. It's incredibly motivating the mental strength required by Paul to get through this and live a happy and fulfilling life. I also recommend any of his videos on YouTube.
