Texas governor and rising star in the Republican Party - one of the first prominent politicians to govern from a wheelchair since Franklin D. Roosevelt - Governor Greg Abbott pens his deeply personal and inspiring life story and proposes a plan to restore America to greatness in what Newt Gingrich calls a "bold and compelling" read. Texas Governor Greg Abbott lost his ability to walk when a huge oak tree crashed down on his back, fracturing vertebrae into his spinal cord, leaving him forever paralyzed.

This country needs a courageous, visionary and strong character statesman like Greg Abbot to lead and restore the greatness of America back to the founding fathers' vision through his well articulated path.

He is a genuine person, dedicated father and charismatic leader. He transformed the worst that could possibly happen to a person into one of the great inspiring story of recent time. Texas is blessed to have him as its governor; America is blessed to have a future leader like Greg. I hope his book is available in other languages as his unbowed spirit is universal and inspiring to all humanity.
