Grove City, OH (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Author Michael A. Straight played football through the eleventh grade and his future seemed secure. But an automobile accident in August 1979 changed all that. Left in very critical condition and a coma that lasted for over 14 weeks, Straight’s future suddenly looked very futile and bleak. Doctors believed that if he lived he would be unable to care for himself. The author proved them wrong.
In Good, Better, Best, Straight shares his autobiographical account and reveals the challenging circumstances that shaped his life. While it was a tremendous blow to be denied his beloved sport of football, he fought his way upward to many accomplishments though confined, for the most part, to a wheelchair. Since his accident, Straight has learned how to drive again, owned several cars, bought (and sold) his own home, gone to three colleges, and has held a manufacturing assembly job for the last several years. In addition to his job, he lifts weights, exercises daily, and goes “dancing.”
Though the author continues to undergo trials, only through a deep love for God, and a sometimes wavering and often challenged faith in Him, has he sustained his determination to be Good, Better, Best. This book is an inspiring testimony of his faith and determination as well as a testament to the tenacity of the human spirit.
This book will be featured at the Ohio Library Council Book Exhibit in Columbus, Ohio on September 7, 2012.
