1 Cole, Jonathan Pride and a Daily Marathon
London Duckworth 1991 0715623850 / 9780715623855 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine complete dustjacket. Foreword by Oliver Sacks. The author is a doctor and here describes an exceptional patient, Ian Waterman, who was struck down at the age of 19 with a rare neurological illness which deprived him of all sensation below the neck and who was diagnosed as incurable. Ian gradually adapted to his strange condition and as predicted there was no neurological recovery and he had to monitor every movement by sight to work out where his limbs were but with astonishing courage and persistence he developed elaborate tricks and strategies to control his movements. Hard enough as this was to cope with daily living, but even greater with the challenges of work, love and marriage. A most heartening account of one man's courage and achievement. *** NOT EX LIB ***
