Publisher's Summary

Whether via the numerous media reports, 60 Minutes specials, Women's Weekly cover stories or her first book, Everything To Live For, we know about the why, how and what of that fateful day in September 2011. We know how she died four times on the operating table and her tortuous road to recovery. We've had a glimpse of the love of her boyfriend, Michael, that sustained her, and seen hints of the inner-strength that has made her one of the most admired women in the country. But until now, the true essence of this most remarkable Australian, plus the toll her accident has all taken on her and those around her, have remained a mystery.

How and why does she push herself to ever greater physical and mental limits? What does she see when she looks in the mirror? How does her sudden celebrity (for the most unorthodox of reasons) sit with her? What lessons has she learned in the past five years? And, crucially, how can each and every one of us take those lessons and apply them to our own lives?

More than a simple chronology of events - and against the backdrop of a never-ending series of impressive physical feats, including climbing the Great Wall of China, walking the Kokoda Track and competing in not one but two Ironman competitions - this book unmasks the real Turia: funny, fierce, intelligent, flawed.

With the benefit of hindsight and five years' worth of getting of wisdom, Turia is only now able to account for how she prevailed where others might have faltered. And for the first time, in this book we get to know the people who - by Turia's own admission - made her recovery possible.

Unmasked will reveal the woman behind the headlines, and in so doing, uncover the grace, humour and inner-steel that gets Turia Pitt through every day - and which leaves the rest of us watching on in amazement.

Amazing

Truly inspirational & amazing. For someone so young to have endured so much yet rise above it all and be an inspiration to all.
Makes you realise anything is possible with hard work and a positive attitude.
Only negative about this audiobook is that it would’ve been nice if a different voice was used for the male & female narratives.

What can you say apart from what an inspiration!

Turia and Michael are evidently two remarkable humans that have created something positive from a point of absolute tragedy. I'll think of Turia every time I catch myself thinking that something is "too hard" from here forward. After reading this book there are seriously no more valid excuses for not getting things done and more than anything for not appreciating and living each day to the best of once ability.

Turin Pitt is motivation on steroids

This is the most inspirational story I have ever read.
I enjoyed the format of the book and reading the views of others impacted by this life changing event,

I must have cried 50 times during this book, tears of joys rather than sadness.

A very powerful story

Repetitive.

I hate to leave such a terrible review on such a moving story, if I didn't though I wouldn't be being honest.
To begin with I was hooked but only made it halfway before I had heard the same sequences and statements repeated 12 times..
yes it's different people's points of view but editing really should have picked up on how dragging and repetitive it is.
May finish one day.

An incredible account of one amazing, inspirational lady!

Wow! What a read / listen. I knew of Turia Pitt and her journey, I had no idea of just how incredible this journey was. This book has come at the perfect time for me as I have been on a "journey" of my own and am about to embark to Kokoda in late June. I having been doubting my ability and now know I can do what ever I set my mind to - thank you Turia for giving me the confidence and changing my mindset. I have also today registered for organ donation - again thank you for bringing this to the forefront of peoples thinking. You really are amazing!!!!
