After spinal cord injury, J Bryant Neville Jr focused on what he could accomplish with his mind.
How I Roll: Life, Love and Work After a Spinal Cord Injury is the autobiography of first-time author J. Bryant Neville Jr.
He was a high school junior in 1981 when he became paralyzed from the neck down as the result of an automobile accident; he lost control of his pickup truck on a country road. The vehicle rolled several times and came to rest with him trapped inside.
At the hospital, a neurologist told Neville quadriplegia meant he’d be bedridden for life. But Neville proved the doctor wrong. He learned to navigate life in a wheelchair, earned two college degrees, and was hired by a local bank in his Virginia hometown, rising up the ranks to become executive vice president and chief financial officer.
Neville refused to accept a sedentary life because of his injury. In How I Roll: Life, Love and Work After a Spinal Cord Injury, he explains how he focused on what he could do with his mind: discovering an interest in computers, obtaining college degrees, and finding his niche at the bank.
How I Roll: Life, Love and Work After a Spinal Cord Injury is available in paperback (192 pages) at amazon.com.
