"This book is a must for every physician, therapist, and other caregiver that treats individuals with cerebral palsy or any other disability." It also is a must for every young person who ever looked at a goal and thought it was just out of reach. Perhaps he or she should look again." Edward A. Hurvitz, M.D. Associate Professor Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Michigan.
"Someone Like Me will serve as an inspiration to a lot of people, not only those with CP, but just ordinary folks who want to read about someone who overcame adversity and succeeded in a most amazing way." General Richard (Butch) Neal, Assistant Commandant, United States Marine Corps.
"Mighty Quinn"...well, that's what we called him...and still do...and I don't believe Bob Dylan would mind...His story is uncommonly unique and unquestionably inspirational, leaving readers no choice but to confirm that he is indeed...Mighty Quinn." Chris F. Jewett, Captain, United States Navy, Retired.
"When someone says you can't do something, the natural human response is defiance. "Someone Like Me - An Unlikely Story of Challenge and Triumph Over Cerebral Palsy" tells the story of John W. Quinn, and how for decades he hid his condition and rose through the ranks of the US Navy. Born with cerebral palsy, no one expected him to achieve senior chief petty officer rank in the Navy. "Someone Like Me is a fascinating and uplifting story, very highly recommended." Midwest Book Review.
"This is not the story of an easy life at any point along the way, but it is one of great determination that can serve as an inspiration to those born with CP and anyone else inclined to feel sorry for themselves." Bookvues.com June 2010.
"A truly remarkable story..." Arizona Daily Star
