Biography / Autobiography Sport

Find a Way One Untamed and Courageous Life Synopsis

What makes this book special is that it not only recounts an astonishing and hard won triumph, though it does tell the story of an extraordinary and improbable victory. What makes this book, and Nyad herself, so incredible is the fact of her monumental courage in the face of failure. Nyad failed, and failed, and failed, and failed, but never gave up, and this memoir shows her unwavering belief in the face of overwhelming odds. It is about perseverance, tenacity and commitment on an epic scale.

Find a Way One Untamed and Courageous Life Press Reviews

Diana Nyad is a force of personality that anyone who meets her never forgets. This drive and dynamism is well captured in the title of her moving memoir Find a Way. She has - and her book shows us how we all can -- Michael Shermer Wall Street Journal

'What makes Nyad's story so remarkable, beyond the harrowing trials she faced at sea - unpredictable currents and weather, deadly sea animals - is the strength of a resolve that would not admit defeat and knew no boundaries. Whatever your Other Shore is, she writes, whatever you must do ... you will find a way. Inspiring reading for anyone who has ever dared to dream the impossible' Kirkus

'Her story reads like a gripping thriller: She braved storms, stinging jellyfish, sharks and hallucinations before staggering onto the beach on September 2, 2013.' People Magazine

'When you're facing big challenges in your life, you can think about Diana Nyad getting attacked by the lethal sting of box jellyfishes. And nearly anything else seems doable in comparison.' Hillary Clinton
