Muscular Dystrophy: Do Not Attempt This At Home is more than a journal. This book chronicles how an ordinary person can triumph over exceptional circumstances. The author nearly died twice during surgeries. He has endured excruciating pain for nearly a half century. Yet he still possesses a keen wit. Some would even venture to say parts of this book are down right funny. Charlie Renne is not unique because he has a debilitating disease. It's how he chooses to go through life that makes him different. Many people that have faced similar obstacles have given up. At best they might curl up on a sofa with a bag of chips in one hand and the TV remote in the other. That sort of a life would never do for Charlie. Perhaps his story may even inspire you to confront the challenges in your world. Life is beautiful! Enjoy it!
