    We have a lot to learn from Hunter, who recently lost an arm in a shark attack: "So I kind of have two options -- I can try to live my life the way I was and make an effort to do that even though I don't have an arm or I can kind of just let this be completely debilitating," he said. "Out of those two, there's really only one that I would choose to do and that's to try and fight and live a normal life with the cards I've been dealt," he said.

In the same way, he was able eventually to compose this extraordinary book.
