Eleven Seconds: A Story of Tragedy, Courage & Triumph by Travis Roy, E. M. Swift

Within the 11 seconds that inspired this memoir, Travis Roy realized his dream, then smashed into his nightmare. On an October night in 1995, Roy, a talented young hockey player, skated onto the ice for his varsity debut with Boston University. Eleven fateful seconds later, he was paralyzed from the neck down. Aided by the sure touch of Sports Illustrated hockey writer E.M. Swift, Roys moving account of his accident and his rehabilitation--confined to a wheelchair, hes gotten some use of his right arm back--avoids the maudlin.Instead, Eleven Seconds is filled with grit, hope, humor, and a thoughtful young mans introspection on the meaning of sports and the adjustments that follow when the ability to play them is taken away.
