“When I came out of my coma at mid-life with the functions of a six-year-old, I had no self-esteem, no confidence, no worth or value.”

Survivors of emotional, cognitive or physical trauma face a daunting dilemma when beginning rehabilitation. Fight or flight. Paul Lamb chose to fight. He hit the iceberg but it didn’t sink him.

His book, Exploring the Iceberg, is a metaphor for life and provides motivating strategies found deep within, like exploring the iceberg, to live, survive and thrive.

It is an inspiring story of his transformation following his traumatic car crash that put him in a coma for several weeks, finding the strength to overcome the challenges of his incredible injury. In the course of his journey, he discovered that knowing yourself deeply is the bedrock of self-esteem.

“When I came out of my coma at mid-life with the functions of a six-year-old, I had no self-esteem, no confidence, no worth or value,” says Paul R. Lamb.

Lamb rebuilt his life after losing almost everything, including his memory and his physical abilities. Exploring the Iceberg instills in readers the ability to draw strength from past trauma to persevere, achieve and fulfill unthinkable dreams at any stage of life.

“You may live feeling you have little value,” Lamb says. “In reality, you have great value, as everyone does. You just may not know it, yet. Fortunately, emerging your self-esteem and your personal growth can start at any age.”
