Publisher's summary

The Sunday Times bestseller

’Are you ready, Max? If anyone’s going to help me do this, it’s you.’

The heart-warming tale of a life-saving friendship.

In 2006, a traumatic car accident changed Kerry Irving’s life forever.

Suffering from severe neck and back injuries, Kerry was unemployed and housebound, struggling with depression and even thoughts of suicide. He went from cycling over 600 miles a month to becoming a prisoner in his own home.

With hope all but lost, Kerry’s wife encouraged him to go on a short walk to the local shop. In the face of unbearable pain and overwhelming panic, he persevered and along the way, met an adorable yard dog named Max. As the Spaniel peered up through the railings, Kerry found comfort and encouragement in his soulful brown eyes. This chance encounter marked a turning point in both their lives.

In Max, Kerry found comfort and motivation and in Kerry, Max found someone to care for him. This is their remarkable, inspiring story.

What a story!

Max really was the miracle dog. I started following his journey on Facebook about 2 years ago with my Mum who had been an avid follower for a long time prior. This book shares some great behind the scenes stories of life with max and Kerry’s journey too. It was a wonderful book.

I started listening to this a few days after Max had crossed the rainbow bridge… so a few tears were shed too.

Slow beginning

The beginning is a little slow but then you learn about Max for the first time and your hooked. I had to read (hear) the book on breaks, at dinner table (after getting the family caught up) and then right before bed. I was in those fields, playing in the water and meeting all the people with Max. One of the best stories ever. But best of all, I had my black and white springer spaniel right by my side. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Amazing Dogs

A fellow dog lover, dogs help us in so many ways. I’m very happy for the author that his life changed with a loving wife and the love of a dog, then many more loving dogs! Very happy for Max to have a life he needed and loved

Man's best friend

A delightful book for everyone. Tough childhood and hard young life but then the accident that almost ruined a life.Saved by a chance meeting with a dog named Max and the rest is history. Wonderful tale of a special dog but even more the affirmation that dogs are a true gift to humans.

Love Springer Spaniels

Kerry is quite candid about his struggles and that helps everyone.
We have a Springer who we adore and this tells a story of how very sweet this breed is. Although ours is definitely not as calm as Max.
