I was delighted to run across this biography in a used bookstore, having read it in the early 1980s as well as the earlier Reader's Digest article on Ms. Patty Wilson.Patty helped inspire other disabled athletes as well as epileptics in her quest to set running records and educate others about the reality of living with epilepsy. Although 26 years old, this book is still most definitely worth a read. I've thought of Patty many times over the years and hope she went on to have a wonderful life. Five stars.
